Damnnnnnn looks like he was looking at the rider in front of him instead of the road ahead. After the rider changed lanes, he fixated on the back of the truck and was just "stuck"

Looks like KPH to me.

Doesn't matter though - that's reckless riding at its most stupid.

Heck, it's not even riding. It's .... I dunno. Just terribly terribly dumb.

Anyone else have their heart pounding as they watched, knowing that you were about to witness something unfold that cost the life of a person on a motorcycle? I hate watching like this... But I'm always so curious. The way they were swerving in and out off traffic reminds me of when I had my first car. Only difference is I was only going like 75 in an Integra.

The lawyer kept refering to insurance companies. I wonder if they got a settlement from multiple companies? Seems like it should only be the ride guy riding the bikes fault. Atleast the passenger survived.

Happens all the time to street racers when they crash and get mangled in their cages, and daddy wants compensation for his little girl who got mangled cuz she got in her boyfriends brostang. Everyone involved becomes a target.

This video shown is just the reason for why you take the speed to the track and not on the roads.
