They should have slowed the down once that car was in the middle of the median before it even came into their lane

Looks to me like the gixxer was going a lot faster when it hit the car. R1 tried to slowdown but not enough. Can't quite tell from gixxer's camera, but the R1 might have block his view of the white car, or at least distracted the gixxer rider from the real hazard.

Both were going fast as they were passing cars left and right.

Re: Yamaha R1 and GSXR600 wreck-video

The second guy should count his blessings that the car turned at the last moment... Probably saved his life.

Speed limit is 55 through there. They were doing double that about a mile before, then both were in the 90s as they crested the hill.

It was not the lady in the car who is at fault. They were being dumbasses in an area that being a dumbass is dumb.
