Hopefully they will both learn from it, a little more experience in "anticipating others actions" would be a benefit....
The newby knew enough to stay back & let his buddy go over the wall first. :)

Distance plus time equal options.

A great following distance mantra.

He has no room to blame the cager for that, you have to expect them to do something they shouldn't.

I do not see her change lanes in front of him. He just did a stupid.

The actual accident was entirely his fault for getting teed off and tailgating the car. Cage vs Bike that will always be the outcome. Stupidity loses.

Hum, lets see here. I just got passed on the right by this cage drifting patially into my lane. Let me get on her rear bumper now. I'll show her who's boss. :lash:

Logic would tell me that she obviously has no reguard for my safety after just drifting across into my lane after waving to me and knowing I'm there. I think I would back way down from her. this is clearly his fault for not leaving himself an out and compounding the issue by getting on her rear bumper. Had he raelly been paying attention he could have seen cars in front of her slowing.


What is this guy thinking. :? I like his last comment.
This is the same place I had scraped my arm before. Sounds like he might have been down before. Apparently if thats the case he didn't learn much from the last fall.

Another youngster hopefully learns some lessons at the school of hard knocks and scrapes.
It was good that his buddy was filming, they can review it over and work out what he needs to learn to become a safer rider with more skills.
Some advanced riding lessons wouldn't go amiss, at the moment he is just one of the "Immortal Heroes" that youngsters are.

The lack of any protective clothing tells me that he was not familiar with ash-felt and that it is not the same consistency as marshmallow. :sadguy:

Haha. I'm with you. The guy is a DA. Seems it's always the guy with the camera that knows his buddy is a DA and the SHTF is seconds away.

She changed lanes across a solid white line which shouldn't happen, but it was intentional as per the blinker. The later downed rider then appeared to get a bit aggressive and accelerated to cut her off. Looked like he was setting up to do the same thing when they got to the section of the exit where 2 lanes started. She didn't help things at all but looks like he injected himself into bad situations.

Whether right or wrong, justified or not, a MC versus a cager is a bad idea. It brings the lug nut theory to mind:
He with the most lug nuts wins.

Clue #1 She starts off by being in a right turn lane but wanting to go straight. Ditz.

Clue #2 She straddles the exit lane. Ditz

Get a feel for the drivers around you. Avoid confused drivers / ditz's. They are thinking about anything but safety.

Inexperienced rider not wearing gear follows too close and locks up rear dumping bike.

Never bring a motorcycle to a car fight.

Wonder why at 20 seconds he tries to cut her off when she was in the right turn lane, turned her left blinker on, no one is there till the antagonistic fool on the left decided to roll the throttle and block her for no reason.

He got what he was looking for if you ask me, the roads could use a few less like him.

He put himself right into her blind zone. Well... at least he had a helmet on...!!! Yes she is a reckless driver... but he demonstrated he is also! Next time he may not be so lucky. And at least she stopped! So many people seem to hit and run these days!

Well he may have been stupid for following too close but I can almost feel for him because just yesterday I had someone come into my lane right along side of me ,look over at me halfway in my lane and I blessed him out..no where to go .. the left lane traffic was heavy and he had the far right lane but wanted mine (3 Lanes) . Cagers do this crap all the time.. I agree we still have to watch them because they certainly arent watching for us.
