These kind of videos always get to me. Not necessarily the gore, but the fact that it could've happened to just about anyone out there.

I always avoid riding alongside other cars, but what happens if a car cuts 3 lanes over to make an exit and doesn't see you? To be writhing in pain like that and not being able to do anything about it..

I was told in driver's ed over a decade ago that after changing lanes, you have to wait 10sec or pass 10 white lines if over 60mph. No clue if that's still the law.

I spent the weekend dodging wildlife and cagers trying to share my lane.

Stay alert and pay attention and leave yourself an "out"....

Looks like a race for the same space and the rider lost. If you can't out brake or out accelerate a car you need to upgrade your skills, your bike, or both

Now, that would be using the brakes, not gassing it....wouldn't it?




Think the incident can be summed up as...when it comes to E-peens on the road, the bigger vehicle wins.

I bet that car never checked the mirrors or looked over ONCE. They were watching the car in front of them, and went for it.

I'm betting the bike though the car would come one lane over, not 2. He didn't brake cause he thought he could slip into that open left lane.

This is the one thing that scares me. In my first year, riding 20k miles, I've had COUNTLESS cars change lanes into me, but none so abruptly that I couldn't click 2 gears and lurch in front of them.

I just had a guy right next to me on BW8 driving a brand new Lincoln slowly drift toward me. No signal, no headcheck, or even mirror check (from looking at the guy's head). The scary thing was, my instinct was not to brake, but to move over to the next lane. Now I had time to do my head check and signal before the lane change, but I really need to self-evaluate WHY is it that I didn't just lightly squeeze that brake lever to give myself more time & options.

If I had backed off, I could've easily - and safely - manuvre around traffic to pass the guy. 2 minutes later, I could be 1/4 mile ahead.

I need to re-train my instincts.

Hate to see this but he had plenty of time to straighten that bike out before he slammed into that wall. By far nobody deserves this but he was not the best pilot.

I can't say never ride outside your limit, that is what allows us to become better. But this was a fundamental mistake and he had no business riding like that.
