That was a bad one for sure.
Sure there are some dumb drivers like this one to pass on a two lane bridge and on a curve.
But most drivers wouldnt do that.

Every close call I have ever had just makes me more alert when on the bike.

I do things a little different in traffic when stopping at a light after I had gotten rear ended twice.

Theres always going to be a risk to it.

The geography looks like the US, but the signs, license plates, the bus, small truck, and both bikes look small plus the accents of the car passengers sounds like India or something....

Read the title as "motorcycler's head lands on suv after crash"...wasn't far off. The blind turn that always makes me think on my commute to work is the on ramp to westpark tollway coming off of the betlway southbound. It's a closed tunnel with sharp curve, can only see a couple cars ahead of you. Going fast around that thing makes you think, "hope nobody is stopped around this curve".

If there is a car stopped there's more than enough room for a motorcycle and car to share that lane.
