Who knows how fast rider was going. But if he was doing the speed limit his right-of-way was definitely impeded.

"Investigators said the victim was speeding south on East Houston Road on a black Suzuki motorcycle."

Welp, looks like he was speeding.

Then it seems you still have a lot to learn. Cars can't tell if you're haulling royal when they turn left. Perhaps he could have utilized an evasive maneuver had he not been speeding. Or here's a novel assumption; if he was traveling the speed limit, perhaps the Ford would have completed the turn in plenty of time.

An oncoming vehicle turning left in front of a motorcyclist --- is the #1 cause of car / motorcycle accidents at an intersection. This was written in the HURT report years ago. Either the car does not see the motorcycle, or they mis-judge their time/speed/distance, and don't realize that their turning is about to cause an accident.

But knowing that this is a very real possibility as a motorcyclist is approaching an intersection with a car that might turn in front of them --- what can the motorcyclist do when this occurs? 1. Be as conspicuous as possible, wearing bright colors, etc. 2. Moto speed needs to be painfully slow so that they might either brake or swerve to avoid the car. 3. Practice quick stops to master this skill. 4. Watch the car like a hawk to get as much warning as possible. 5. Have an escape route ready. 6. I don't know!

And I would imagine that the motorcyclist probably hit the very front left corner of the Expedition. , if the car had not turned quite as soon; or the cyclist could have swerved a little wider; etc.

Very sad, R.I.P.

Ride like everyone else is out to kill you
Practice countersteering until it is a sub-conscious habit, so you don't turn INTO the car you are trying to avoid.
