That was my mantra when I first rode in the 70's and 80's, and it helped keep me alive. However, with the advent of cell phone cager a$$holes who don't signal or look out, and various other folks who seem hell-bent to minimize the two-wheel population, I have modified that maxim to:meanbean said:RIDE LIKE YOU ARE INVISIBLE!
An old timer gave me that advice more than 25 years ago.
That's pretty much my evaluation of the tape anyway, as well. And I'm prone to be biased for the rider.Lardog said:I feel for the guy, but I have to say, it looks like he was both going way too fast, and not paying much attention. That car began it's turn almost a full 3 seconds before impact. Can't tell if the bike slowed down prior to impact or not, however, he was moving pretty good, so if he did brake at all, he was really haulin' ass before hand.
