Talking For Racer X

How could MSF have helped this man?

These situations blow your "prevention" theory to ... The only one who could have avoided the accident would have been the trucker. Maybe he should take MSF?

i agree but to post it in a manner to try to prove a point is is really dumb. the theory of racer x that he is trying to disprove is right BUT there will always be exceptions to even a good rule of thumb.

by the way person can take msf or drivers ed all they want but it's up to that person to follow what they were taught.

uh WTF!

all he had to do was

PAY ATTENTION, use his mirrors. he should have seen the truck, HEARD the truck barreling down behind him. he didnt have to speed up, all he had to do was swerve over into the other lane, and yes MSF will teach you to be aware and how to change lanes quickly....

CHRIST, WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU. ....

Not what I was expecting.... but holy , how did the truck driver not see him????

Also, sort of looked like the moped slowed way down to take the turn and crossed from the outside of the lane to the inside way too soon... MSF would have helped here, actually...

+1 to what Chris24 said above too... how do you not know a big truck is behind you?

RIP

im not sure what MSF class you guys are taking, but the one i took does not give you eyes in the back of your head nor does it make you psychic.

First let me say... you know we cool...

But, c'mon... when you ride you aren't always looking beside you, behind you and in front of you? I am. I NEVER stop scanning. Especially, when I'm coming up to an intersection and/or about to change lanes.

As far as what I said about MSF, they teach you to take curves.... is all I meant by it. You've seen it on the runs we do... some people brake way to hard when approaching a curve. Anyway, I'm out of this thread... not tryin' to be a part of any drama.

Peace out!

well as a driver I'll tell you what I see. I see a truck driver that wasn't paying attention and could not stop in time. The moped was in the lane and obviously did not see or hear the truck coming. And while it is easy to say they should have been using the mirrors... the fact of the matter is if you are looking in your mirrors so much as to see everything that goes on constantly you are not paying enough attention to what is in front of you. When rolling down the road there is a certain amount of faith in your fellow drivers that they won't drive over you while moving down the road. and yes I scan my mirrors quite frequently but you cannot keep track of goings on behind you like you can in front of you.

yes we are always scanning. but if that guy kept his eyes peeled to the mirrors he wouldnt be able to see whats in front of him. it was 100% the truckers fault. how long was he behind him? and didnt know to slow the down?

you know, i may not agree with everything racer x says. its true at times he can seem harsh, rude, and blunt. i can too. he and i disagree on certain things. thats fine. i still support him as a mod here. at least he gives a about people's safety. if he only wants to care about the safety of those who care about their own safety, i can totally understand and even agree to a point. again, i may not agree with everyone he says, but i still feel hes got more brains and common sense than a majority of the members of this forum.

you might think he is a , but guess what, someone probably thinks you are an too, for whatever you do. maybe your g/f is cause you dont take the trash out, maybe your boss thinks your a slacker, maybe your employees think your a hardass. i dont know. no one is perfect. i can readily admit i can be a selfish sometimes. lol.

racer x doesnt need anyone to stick up for him, but i will anyways. i think he is a good moderator. on any forum you are going to need a good mix of mods, with varying levels of opinions of whats right and wrong, and what fly's and what doesnt.
