Thats what happens when your going well over the speed limit......the other car judges your time of arrival wrong, the whole depth/time perception, especially on something as small and fast as a MC

Yea, or like drivers don't realize you're riding triple digits while they're busy texting, putting on makeup, and eating a breakfast taco with hot coffee

LOL should the driver assume you are WELL over the speed limit? and why are you as a rider assuming that the driver is not infact WELL distracted? you dont think that people in cars use phones?

sounds like you failed to plan.

Both!!!! In a car 75 percent of people are distracted. It's proven. We as riders must anticipate that every car doesn't see you and is going to cut you off. Then you'll be better prepared.

Someone once told me that your life flashes before your eyes because your brain is still firing neurons... I know that I've had these moments in the past... (regretfully)...

I think everyone has had those "oh " moments at the track too. I did once at 110 mph going off the track at TWS (Texas World Speedway)...turn 12.

If you have a lot of "oh " moments, you should know its bound to catch up....

Street speeds are deliberate and those unforeseen moments exist more than on the track we all know that. Track speeds are different to me. It's harder to find the limit at the track because you have nothing stopping you but you yourself, and your abilities.

When I was low siding down the road my first thought was, "this isn't so bad", then in a flash switched to "my bike is going to be all up ", then my body hit the first ditch and I was like " that hurt!"

With all of the people that have to check their Facebook and Twitter feeds while driving you have to be extra alert.
