Although this is clearly his inattention/playing w camera, i too have been blinded by the sun while doing nothing more than riding to work in the morning...

That being said there are 2 things i am truley deathly afraid of, the sun (sometimes) blinding me...and sneezing while riding...you really cant control that one.

yeah but sometimes i get into sneezing attacks where i'll do 4-5 uncontrollable sneezes, i wasnt speaking for all when i made that statement. only myself.

kudos to you. im sure that "one" sneeze will come along one day, while you're in a high stress situation which may change your mind however.

Revved up like a deuce.
Another biker in the night.

The first thing I do when I get blinded by the sun is apply more throttle too

Proper eye protection will help reduce accidents like this. I am more fearful of a sneeze as well... When I sneeze sometimes, it is pretty intense, and I would go a little light headed and my vision would be blurry from the tears in my eyes.
