That guy being lucky he survived is the understatement of the year... idiots like that give all motorcyclist a bad name.
Liveleak is full of videos of "squids" killing themselves on bikes. I recall one posted last year of some dumbazz that hit an on coming car doing
about 170 mph. Let's just say it was spectacularly gruesome. The incident was captured by the dash cam of car not in the wreck. If you paused it
just right you could see body parts flying like 50 feet in the air. A leg here. An arm there. You could even see the guy's head flying with helmet
still on like kickball.
There is another video that went viral where a guy did something similar in the OPs video. Guy speeding and a car pulls out in front of him.
Unfortunately, he didn't live. The video was on the biker's helmet cam. His parents released the video as a PSA about wreckless riding. It was
pretty bad... as you could clearly hear the guy's last words which was "Oh Sh*t!" as the car pulls out in front of him and he is doing about 100mph
(On a street with a speed limit of about 40).
The problem with speeding motorcycles is that they are hard to see and most of the public really has no idea how fast bikes are and have a hard time
judging approaching speed since bikes typically are a smaller silhouette than a car. The driver's brains are not used to seeing motorcycles
I love riding motorcycles, but I just don't get this high speed thrill on public roads. I guess that is why I am old...
