Rider down I-10 and HWY 6

Rider down I-10 and just after HWY 6, looked like the female cager rear ended a ultra glide or similar in the HOV lane. Bike didn't look bad but it was laying on it side so I the rider wasn't well enough to pick up his bike and we know that's not usual. Prayers for the rider and family.

This was about 6:40 this am.

Many prayers... One of the reasons I mainly ride in the dirt... I can't trust others...

Keep an eye on your mirrors everybody, you never know when a crazy driver could be closing up on you in an unsafe manner.

Can you angle your camera a little higher? Was frustrating to watch mostly pavement.

Glad he didn't clip your bars & put you down.

I know what you're referring to, but that camera angle was killing me. Kept tilting my head back while watching it trying to get the angle to change

I admit the angle sucks. This was the first time I used the camera(cheapo from Micro Center). rhenriksen , That is a good point about the lane position.

The no texting while driving doesn't do any good. They have it here in Illinois. Drivers still text but now they look down at the phone instead of up because they are hiding the phone instead of having it up in their hands on the wheel.

First thing I thought of. If you're not passing, GTFO of the left lane and people won't dive bomb you like that.
