This is why you hold your clutch at red lights.

I was sitting in a lane years back with my sons and a lady on a cel phone driving a jag creams into the car sitting at the light , lane next to us. what a thing to see right there next to you.
Good thread! after that I always kept my bike in gear at the lights and foot on the clutch ready to haul in a blink.

Glad you were able to make it not as bad as it could have been. As much as I can appreciate your quick reaction, I'm not sure running the redlight was a good idea. If someone were to side swipe you, it would've been squarely your fault. If you live to take the blame, that is.

I've been rear-ended more than my fair share. All these portable electronic distractions are gonna make it even worse.

Just to be clear, you were on a bike behind this Honda, or w/e it is, when you saw the Silverado coming towards fairly quickly. so went oh and you smashed the gas and the driver probably closed his and ram the out of this Honda?

Well done, well done. I did the same at the intersection however I went on top of the sidewalk.

Always good advice, keep it in gear at a stop light. I also prefer to position myself in a lane-split position on the white lines or at least pointing my front tire between the lanes so that if I need to escape from an onrushing vehicle I have a path out.

it was 2 am and there was zero cross traffic.

Plus it was a better idea than certain death. This guy was coming and fast. No way I walk away alive, the car flew across 4 lanes, median and parking lanes worth of distance.

Would you play Russian roulette with a revolver with one bullet or a beretta with one in the chamber if you were forced t choose one?

This makes it much safer to stop, I try to make it a habit of stopping in places that i am out of the way of the drivers where they tend to stop.

I misread your OP... I thought that was your car you were driving. Definitely lesser of 2 evils...
