Pretty freaky.

The bickering in the comments is all full of BS about it being a funeral procession and how all traffic is supposed to stop for it, bla bla bla.

Good thing the rider was off to the right of the lane. I have saved my own by doing the same. The rider would be a sammich if he had been centered with the car

Send a message via AIM to dudewhrsmybike
. I tend to flick my tail lights when I see traffic stopping ahead and even when I am just sitting at a light. And of course, being on the outside of the lane in first gear helps too, gives you an out.

I do the same with lights. This driver didnt even see the stopped cars. He wasn't going to see lights unless it was train lights in his face

In those situations ALWAYS stop in the white lane! Close to both cars and first gear engaged, Keep scanning your mirrors. Once the traffic resumes you can be back on your lane.
