why?

if the bike wasn't speeding the car would have ample time to manoeuvre

It didn't look like it was speeding, their was a car traveling ahead of them. In addition the turning car is still performing an illegal U-turn.
>>
>>1564056
Looks like he doesn't even counter steer.
>>
>>1566402
He wasn't speeding, nor was there very much distance between him and the car when the car turned unsafely close, then illegally stopped in the path of the rider, impeding him. He was unable to maneuver regardless of how far away the car was, because of the numerous other riders behind him and to his right.

Don't try to always blame the bike for cars' mistakes. The vast majority of accidents involving a bike and any other vehicle are with a car, and the vast majority of those are caused by the car, as evidenced by the Hurt report.

Yes, but nothing about the video makes sense. She tried starting it with the key, but knew exactly how to put the bike in gear and work the clutch. People also say that she's a motorcycle cop, based on the boots she's wearing - yet she doesn't have the sense to find that riding a heavy(ish) bike up a steep, slippery slope, stopping and dismounting won't work.

I'm going to guess there was some kindof "I'm a cop you have to do what i say' BS going on here. Hence why they are also recording.

Maintain safe distance from other vehicles and be aware of what's happening around you retard.

You can't drive a motorcycle like a car and expect to not die.
>>
>>1569306
How do you maintain safe distance from a vehicle that's stopped and waiting to turn? When one's moving and the other isn't, obviously they're closing in on each other. Do you expect to bike to turn around so that way he can "maintain safe distance" from a stopped vehicle?

Did you even bother to watch the webm? Did you even bother to read my post? Because I never implied that you should ride a bike like you drive a car.
And for reference, you /can/ ride a bike like you drive a car.
>>
>>1569306
following the rules only goes so far when people sometimes just refuse to acknowledge your existence or are plain retarded. I'm not saying that's always the case, but there are certainly a fair number of drivers who just don't look for bikes.

I think my funniest example is when a woman plowed into my ride with an SUV while I was parked. Didn't even look, pulled into the spot at an assumed speed of approx 20 mph. destroyed my bike and bruised my ribs pretty good, I got lucky.

Or the time my brother got cut off by a rolling stopper. They thought it was a 4 way stop: it wasn't. his XV was totaled, he broke a vertebrae and 2 ribs, ruined his coat and got great rash on his legs. If it wasn't for his gopro proving we were going the speed limit (which i will admit, is rare for my accident prone brother), he would have gotten his shit legally kicked in since the woman had 2 kids in her car and the cops were being complete cunts about my bad attitude.

On the other hand there are guys like my buddy jeremy who rides his bike 80MPH in a 35. fucking retard.
>>
>>1569234
I still do. It's more or less there for legality reasons.
>>
>>1564286

I'm not the the rider in the Webm but I've had that happen to me but was able to over come and not crash.

Here's a definition from google

>"Target fixation is an attentional phenomenon observed in humans in which an individual becomes so focused on an observed object (be it a target or hazard) that they inadvertently increase their risk of colliding with the object."

On a bike it is amplified since you use your body to complete turns especially for new riders.
>>
>>1564056
I can understand target fixation and going into a corner too fast. That shit has happened to me but never crashed.

In this clip it looks like he's trying to lean off his bike like motoGP riders but the bike isn't leaning at all. It's as if he didn't even attempt to counter steer.

What was he doing?
>>
>>1569282
>why you'd bother videotaping if you aren't experienced
Because that's where fun is. When i started riding i ran my doolsport into a ditch, went over handlebars and almost shat myself by accidentally wheeling over a tree. Too bad i was thinking the same thing.. "why record while just learning slowly".

I ran into this exact scenario this morning heading to work, at like twice the speed and it literally didn't slow either one of us (me and the car) down. This guy had TERRIBLE utilization of SEE.

Search
Evaluate
Execute

He saw the car acting dumb, he had to evaluate. He didn't, he just trusted them to unfuck themselves. Then, when they didn't, and went ahead and switched lanes, he had plenty of time/room to dodge left, OR when he saw them starting to come over, he could have switched over to right lane and scooted past them on their right. He didn't even do that, he just ran right into them like a dumb ass. Way to go, dude.

>>1569306
Safe distance? He was approaching an intersection with a stopped car facing his direction. How do you maintain safe distance? Swing to far right lane? He had bikes next to him, plus changing lanes

I agree, maintaining safe distance and being aware are VITAL to safety, but this for sure isn't a "safe distance" scenario, this is a REACTION scenario. All you can do here is trust your bike and skill to stop you fast enough. This exact scenario is a prime example of why you should practice stopping quickly in addition to all other training. Sometimes you just have to hit the brakes.

This guy had the situation pegged. Couldn't change lanes to the right, there were vehicles there. Couldn't dodge left, he'd be in oncoming traffic. The car driver made a retard move, 100%, even had to stop mid turn because of another car going by. Literally ALL the biker could do was stop quickly, which meant at least he was aware enough to do that, which in this case was enough to keep him rubber side down.

Not that anon but in my entire life, despite my being polite and fully cooperative each time, I have met exactly ONE police officer who treated me like an actual human being. That said, him stopping me at all in that circumstance was technically illegal on his part so even just simple human decency comes at a cost with these fuckers.

Everyone keeps talking shit, but i'd like to get a qualitative explanation on what exactly happened in here, at what moment OP fucked up, what he did wrong and what should've been done in such situation, to:
a) Not cause it in first place.
And in unfortunate case when you still end up in it:
b) Save it while on tarmac and heading for disaster,
c) Save it when you are already off road or about to hit gravel or grass.

Rider is inexperienced as fuck. He isn't familiar with turning at speed, or probably turning at all.

>what exactly happened
He thought he couldn't make the corner, grabbed the front brake (probably) and went straight

>at what moment OP fucked up
At the moment he started applying front brake instead of actually turning. Braking straightens the bike up.

>what should've been done in such situation
In such a wide corner it's pretty safe to lay off the throttle and just turn.

>Not cause it in first place
If you don't know the road or you're starting out, slow the fuck down. Ride within your limits. Your technique improves in small increments.

>And in unfortunate case when you still end up in it
Well if you're already in deep shit, it goes on a case-by-case basis. In OP's case, he could've just laid off the gas and turned.

This dude >>1569271 got himself in deeper shit with namely two mistakes
1. Waaaay too fast for a blind corner he apparently doesn't know
2. Abused the brakes pretty hard.

He could've laid off the gas, tightened the turn as much as he could and hoped for the best. If he had done that he probably would have made it to the end the other lane, but not the grass. But again, doing that instead of just grabbing both brakes takes riding experience (especially at speed) and a lot of mental "cool" to not panic when shit starts going south. I've ridden off track at 120km/h on a wide turn and seen plenty of people ride off tarmac and stay upright too. You got to keep cool and be smooth. It comes with experience.

He thought the car turned right enough to stay on the right lane (he accelerate), then the car don't go in his lane, the car turned left and CROSSES his lane (I think it's forbidden).

He didn't have enough space to turn left because the car didn't stay in his lane, it crosses left as well

As for going in the right lane, the car turned right, the car was going in the right lane. Were you to go in the right lane the car could have went forward and you would have ended in its rear end

Did you even watch the video? If so, maybe you should stay out of the road, in a car or on a motorcycle.
>>
>>1572086
no I was being for real serious. I have been there, pulled out of my car by TX state trooper for speeding, and I'm white. Plus dickhead Louisiana cops always have been rude to me for no reason. That's what I was getting at with that guy's post. It was just funny the way he worded it
>>
>>1573127
Dude, I'm telling you, I went through that EXACT scenario yesterday morning. A real biker that's paying attention could spot the indecisiveness in that car's actions immediately.

They pulled out, but you could tell they wanted to keep merging left by the way they started to straighten out but then kept heading left. Based on that evaluation, biker could have either swung to lane position 3 of right lane while slowing down to allow the car to figure his shit out, and then pass on the right, OR he could have gotten into lane position 1 in left lane to prepare an escape route to the left if the car DID end up merging left.

He did none of that. He swung his turn wide, dipping into right lane briefly (which probably confused the driver as to what lane he was going to be in), then merged back into position 2 (middle of) left lane, which is not the best place to be when planning an escape route. Then, when he saw the driver keep merging left, he had absolutely NO plan to execute, so he didn't slow down, didn't speed up, didn't swerve, nothing. He just ran into the car.

I did watch the video, and it's literally a textbook example of utilizing Search Evaluate Execute. He saw the car pull out and act suspicious. If he was more experienced or had better training, he would have recognized the signs that the car may merge further left, and could have made at LEAST 2 plans based on that. He did nothing. You can't tell me I need to stay off the road, because I literally went through this EXACT situation yesterday and breezed right through at as if it wasn't even happening. If you can't get your head around it, it means your brain doesn't function quick enough to evaluate a situation like this, and you need more training. Lrn to MSF.

motorcycle safety foundation. they teach some riding courses, with the "basic" one teaching you how to ride safely in traffic, how to operate a motorcycle, all sorts of maneuvers, how to watch for/interpret/anticipate traffic and road conditions, how to position yourself for escape routes or evasive actions, etc etc.

>>1569271

>>
>>1573270
I knew someone would say that.
You're wrong. Unequivocally. The car made an illegal u-turn from the right lane without even looking, impeding the path of traffic.
>>
>>1573270
The grey car looked like it was going to go into the first lane, but kept on driving instead. 100% the grey car's fault.
>>
>>1573625
Hardly unequivocally, all the while there has been multiple relatively well founded posts discussing the video in question.
There's no doubt that the situation would have not occurred in the first place, had the car followed traffic rules. But it's his goddamned fault for riding above his skill level, and not just fucking slowing down. Riding aggressively is something you do when you know it's the only variable you control. In a situation like this, probably unfamiliar intersection, dark, unpredictable cager, you slow the fuck down or get out of the way.
It's not a matter of right or wrong, it's a matter of whether you want your bike and yourself to be in one piece the next day, or not.
>>
>>1573625
This is the same guy. Let's see if he's learned his lesson since he rebuilt the bike.
>>
>>1573636
He was neither riding above his skill level, nor aggressively; not even a little bit. If you call that 'aggressive,' I'd hate to see how you ride. Riding too defensively is exactly as hazardous as riding aggressively.

Either way, the crash /is/ unequivocally the car's fault. The rider was legally travelling in his lane, at a reasonable speed, at which point a car suddenly and quickly entered his lane, to make a u-turn, infringing the bike's right of way. She failed to yield, impeded traffic, and attempted to make an illegal u-turn, all quite illegal, and in many cases unsafe, things. There is absolutely no defending the car driver here.
>>
>>1573636
I'd like to correct my terminology - when I say "defensively," I mean excessively cautiously. Especially so much that you impede traffic yourself. You get the idea.
>>
>>1573650
>>1573655
I don't disagree, the cause leading to the sitch was the driver. But it's clear the rider over-estimates the likelihood of the car acting within norm, considering he doesn't brake until right when he can't swerve or avoid it in any other way. If your head's not on a swivel at intersections, you get what's coming, be that dumb drivers or meth head truckers.
"overly cautious" is a meme.
>>
>>1573665
It's certainly true that he assumes the driver won't do anything wrong, but he did slow down before the driver was in his lane - but since the driver stopped showing signs of attempting to merge into the rider's lane, he accelerated again. It wasn't until the driver cut unsafely close to the bike that he braked again.

The next time you're going 40 in a 70, look around you and see how many people you're holding up, and look at how many accidents you cause over time. Overly cautious driving impedes everyone, which is illegal and unsafe.

I agree here, I think the wreck itself is the car' fault, however, I also believe if that rider had better/more training he could have stayed off his ass and the car's terrible driving would have been a non-issue.

well...he's an idiot. I don't think he learned his lesson. Hell, I don't think he realizes there's a lesson to be learned.

I admit I go squiding around sometimes, but that guy is the definition of squid.
>>
>>1573711
Yeah man, after extensive experience driving in both louisiana (lousy-anna), and arkansas, going that far under the speed limit is not only common, it's almost expected. Like, people look at you as if you're satan because you pass them going THE SPEED LIMIT because they're going so damn slow. And you pass them in the right lane because the stupid mother fuckers are going 30 under in the FAST LANE.

Another big problem in arkansas is that people, especially old ladies, try so hard to be "courteous" or polite in traffic, that they'll slam on the breaks ON A HIGHWAY to let someone out who is waiting to pull onto the road. I've actually seen pileups happen because some dumb bitch wanted to be "nice" and let someone out onto a busy road, even though she had the right away and the other car didn't even show any sign of pulling out, so she just slammed on the breaks, meanwhile they're looking at her like "wtf are you doing, bitch? You have the right away. go!" Then next thing you know, the lady is getting rear ended by someone who never in a million years thought anyone could be that stupid. Only problem is, is happens WAY more often than it should.

/rant about stupid fuck arkansas and "sit at green lights, drive through red lights" dumb fuck louisiana.
>>
>>1573716
Yeah, I guess I should have been more clear. The two videos of the guy on the red 250 are the same guy, and the video of the guy crashing on the SV650 is the only video I have of him, and those two people are entirely unrelated. There's also the webm of a guy on a 675R braking hard to avoid the car making an illegal u-turn, he's also separate from those two guys.
>>
>>1573753
copy all. Ok so, my conclusion:

-675R guy, not his fault whatsoever, did good to stop in time and avoid going down

-SV650 guy, not his fault, but better training probably would have kept him from crashing regardless

-red 250 guy, is a dumbass. lol

Following the rules of the road is not enough. If you drive like that you WILL end up in an accident as soon as something unexpected happens. Like an unaware idiot turning and cutting you off. It's enough to just drive normally when you're strapped inside of a vehicle that's carefully designed to shield you because even if you're in a collision you'll be fine. The same is not true when you're on a motorcycle. That's why you always maintain a safe speed and distance so that you are always able to maneuver or stop if you need to. Don't just trust other drivers to do the right thing, go above and beyond to drive defensively. The objective shouldn't be 'follow the rules,' it's 'don't get hit.'

You're a squishy little piece of shit frogger out there in the street full of big scary cars who don't even know you exist, name of the game is don't get hit.
>>
>>1572424
As you go faster the bike's tires act as gyroscopes and they work harder and harder to maintain the bike's orientation. This helps you stay upright at speed, but it also makes it progressively harder to turn. The guy in question was going to fast to begin with, if that's the speed limit on that road he shouldn't be on that road. Don't jump straight onto highways and busy city streets when you're just learning to drive, that should be obvious. Same thing applies for motorcycles. Get yourself a few hundred hours experience puttering around small towns and residentials first.
>>
>>1575392
How could you expect him to have done anything to avoid or even foresee that incident? He was travelling at a reasonable speed through an intersection with right of way, do you expect him to go 14 mph through the intersection on the off chance that someone will do something wrong?
My point is that there will be incidents that are simply unavoidable by the victim. You simply can't operate any vehicle with the assumption that everyone is or will do something wrong, no matter how often people say "ride like you're invisible!" Obviously you should be doing your best to see these situations coming, but it's impossible to see all of them, and too many people live with the fallacy that it is possible. Those are the people that will crash, and then wonder why.

>>
>>1575425
In the webm you posted for example, the rider should have been looking around so that he's aware of who's at the intersection and what they're doing. Even a little kid knows you look both ways before crossing.

If you just pull up like "UHH DUH LIGHT'S GREEN DAT MEANS I GOOOO!" you're an idiot.

In >>1565839 the rider should have seen there's someone there evidenced by headlights (shouldn't be riding at night though that's dangerous), and slowed in anticipation of some kind of fuckery. He got lucky that the car turned before he was too close to stop, because he WASN'T slowing in anticipation like he should have done. I don't know if there was someone riding up his ass (there shouldn't be but it happens) so he couldn't slow. He should've known though, being aware of what's around him, and known if he could slow safely or not.

Again, be aware of what's going on around you, and always maintain a safe speed and distance so you have room to stop and maneuver. If you can't do this, you shouldn't be riding a motorcycle on that road.

Of course we both know that motorcycle riders aren't the type to actually care about safe driving so it's pointless to expect it from them.

>sister stopped at an intersection.
>it was an angled intersection (she actually had clear view of the road)
>she turned into the intersection then immediately slammed her brakes because she saw a motorcycle
>motorcyclist was apparently speeding (that never happens)
motorcyclist goes left and hits my sister head on...instead of going right and going into the ditch
>motorcyclist lost his leg
i think my sister got a ticket for failing to yield.
never did ask her how much the ticket was. hell, im not even sure if she did get a ticket.

pic related: had to be her reaction after learning that she wasn't going to spend a day in jail and was never sued.

this actually happened to me once except in a busy street. there was a slow car ahead of me and no cars on the second lane behind me. so i went on the right lane and a car was stopped in the the lane. what saved me was breaking hard and trying turn as much as i can between the stationary car and the cars parked on the side of the street. which i managed to do, although between the two cars was a person talking to the people in the stationary car. it was an awful experience i would of hit a car at 60 mph.

Of course a cager would be be spewing the bullshit that you are. I can guarantee that everything you know about motorcycles and motorcycle riders comes from the news and movies. The fact is that motorcycle riders are more concerned about safety than anyone, because we're the ones to suffer when you retards fuck up. I know your "counter argument" to this is that you've seen a bike go 100mph on the highway, which is an anecdote and not representative of the whole; not only that, but cars do it too. I'd also like to point out that almost all multi-vehicle collisions involving a motorcycle are with a car, and of those, 66% were the car's fault. But it would be impossible for you perfect car drivers to cause a crash, so it must be those unsafe motorcyclists!

>>1575450
if you don't ride, you literally have no room to tell bikers how to ride. To assume they don't care about safety is pure ignorance, both of the rider's mindset, and also of the rider's abilities. To you it looks careless, but to them it's perfectly fine. You just can't handle riding, so you assume anyone that does it is equally incapable of managing the complexities of motorcycle riding. But it's not.

Also, as far as that second webm goes, I don't know why people keep saying what that rider should have done. That rider did nothing wrong. Slowing down wouldn't have prevented that car from getting stuck in its illegal u-turn, as it had to wait on the other car in the other lane anyways, so slowing down wouldn't really have helped him except to not have to brake as hard as he did. If you slow down at every intersection that has a car at it, you might as well just get off the road and stop driving. That rider encountered a pure retard driver, so he properly braked hard enough and came to a stop in time to avoid wrecking. That is the best thing he could have done there.

>>1575965
That's true for maybe 50% of motorcyclists at best. Realistically probably more like 25%. The other 50-75% are either kids on crotch rockets with no gear who ride way too fast, or Harley guys who ride reasonably but have never given 30 seconds of thought to safety.

A tank slapper is a quick and repeating oscillation of the handle bars, usually caused by input on the bars (either by the rider or the road surface, or other external variable) while the front wheel is light, like during acceleration.

The bike receives this input, and since the bike is a natural gyro, it tries to bring itself to its 'neutral' position (bars straight) but goes past the neutral position, and farther in the opposite direction. This is called negative dynamic stability. To fix a tank slapper, put more weight on the front wheel without putting any more input on the bars.

he's a fat cunt and there's not enough weight on the front
>or
he did a wheelie and came down poorly
>or
he's gripping the bars too tight

all of which result in the front skipping around as it struggles to maintain stability. It's not a problem if you don't panic, you can just put some more weight on the front and lessen your grip and ity should be fine. If you panic then you risk wobbling out of control which will end with you on your arse

>>1587442
I'l say this again for you autists that seem to think the driver didn't do anything wrong. The driver made a U-turn in an intersection that indicated U-turns as unlawful. Aside from that, he made the U-turn dangerously close to the riders, causing them to make an emergency maneuver - emergency braking; this was the car driver failing to yield right of way. The car driver then stopped in the roadway, impeding traffic. That's 3 unlawful things that he did, and there's many more unsafe things that he did in that one clip.

As well, the rider was not speeding. I really don't know why you people keep insisting that he was - he was travelling at 42mph in a 45mph zone. Even if he was speeding, speeding does not wave a vehicle operator's right of way - the car driver would have still been at fault.

Finally, following someone and confronting them is legal - assuming that you don't commit assault or battery, or cause damage to personal property. It would be well withing the rider's legal rights to tell the driver how shitty of a driver he is. That anon never implied that anyone should hurt the driver, only shame him, which is perfectly legal; that's just another incorrect assumption that you made.

tl;dr learn the law before you open your mouth, retard.

Target fixation. It's a flaw in humans, not the bike - the bike could have made that turn very easily. You go where you look, and he got scared, looked at the thing he didn't want to hit, and hit it. Classic target fixation.

Motorcycles aren't made to speed like in a race, they're made to transport you from A to B, just like a bicycle or car. If You speed on public road with traffic, you're begging for a crash. These superbike style motorcycles are designed for races where you don't have traffic, people should take them to a highway at the most, not city.

This 100%.

I never realized how much shit is going on around you on a road until I started riding. You become hyper-aware compared to driving, and the safety and technique of riding is a sizeable portion of what motorcycle riders talk about to each other when they're discussing riding.

Cagers think this because the only riders they notice are the two idiots on 600rrs going 160 on the highway at night you can hear 3 miles away.

>cager cager cager blah blah blah
>typical self-righteous bullshit

I've been riding for 20 years and have been around bikes my entire life. My family has run a motorcycle shop for the last 50 years. Assholes who only want to go fast and look cool are not some tiny minority. That's the main reason people get into bikes in the first place. They tend to mellow out if they stick with it long-term, but there are always new people starting out who don't care about safety, don't know how to ride, and think it's super awesome to tear around at twice the speed limit everywhere they go.

I was also a paramedic for ten years and have seen plenty of accidents involving motorcycles. The majority involved the bike only and were due to some combination of excessive speed, poor riding skills, and alcohol. The majority of car vs bike accidents were the car's fault, but don't overlook the increased risk created by the biker going faster than the flow of traffic, weaving through traffic, sitting in blind spots, wearing low-visibility clothing, and otherwise riding poorly. Just because the driver is technically at fault does not mean the rider did everything right.

The majority of people are incompetent and unsafe. It doesn't matter whether they're on four wheels or two.
>>
>>1569271

The thing with a motorcycle is that it will want to raise itself once you let up on the throttle. That's why the only way to really save yourself if you're going into a turn too fast is to speed up and tilt the bike more. It's against any "common sense", but that's how it works.

Your credentials as a rider, paramedic or descendant of someone who once owned a shop has no influence on the validity of what you say. The only things that matter are statistics and proof. People who buy a bike for speed are certainly the minority - I can also tell you're hiding your prejudice behind a wall of ambiguity; you clearly hate sport bike riders are vindictive of them. If you're going to try and tell me that you believe the majority of cruiser riders buy a bike to go fast, which is what you're saying, you're crazy. And you say that the majority of accidents are single-vehicle, however that is statistically false. In the United States, the majority of accidents involving a motorcycle also involve a car, and 66% of those are the car's fault.

At the end of the day, so many accidents would be avoided if those 66% of car drivers would develop a sense of mortality; stop texting, check their blind spots, generally pay more attention. No rider should have to assume the risk of an unsafe car driver.

Finally, there's nothing to suggest that the majority of everyone on the road are incompetent or unsafe. Most people, obviously not all, do make efforts to avoid having crashes.

Here's the play by play thought process of the rider
1. Car is pulling over too second lane *Fine I'll brake*
2. Car is turned so far to the right that it seems like it is just getting in the right lane; car is actually just avoiding the yellow markers. *Okay it's fine I can keep going* rider accelerates
3. Car turns back towards left lane *lets off throttle and it's too late. By the time he realizes the driver is being an absolute dipshit, the rider has <40 feet to stop. At ~35 mph that's just not enough time to avoid it.

TL:DR Car is 100% at fault for driving dangerously and not taking enough time to properly check blind spots

Legally yes. But practically, the motorcyclist is partially responsible for illegally changing lanes in the intersection, not paying attention to the idiot in the car, then riding into the side of the car like a fucking retard. We can do this all day.

In case you wanted to know the real answer. When you brake very hard, you lose steering. People freak out and lock the brakes. In that situation he had to let go of the brakes, and he would have regained steering. Let OFF the brakes.
>>
>>1606541
Because the car driver looked like he was going to continue straight, and it wasn't until it was too late that the rider realized that the car driver was making an illegal U-turn from the right lane, without signalling.
>>
>>1606729
The rider did not change lanes in the intersection, and the car demonstrated that its intent was to continue straight, without changing lanes. It did this by failing to signal or indicate any intention of deviation from what would otherwise be its obvious path of travel. Once the car straightened up within its lane, the rider had no further indication that the car had any intention of invading the rider's lane. Finally, saying that the rider is responsible because he crashed into the car, then admitting that the car caused the rider to crash into him is circular reasoning.

>The rider did not change lanes in the intersection
Rider turns from the left lane, enters the left lane at an angle, holds that angle and immediately crosses the center line, then immediately weaves back into the left lane. The law (at least in most states) is that you must turn into the nearest lane, then signal and execute a proper lane change after the turn is complete. He obviously didn't do that. It's not clear if he was trying to turn into the right lane, or if he just sucks at riding and overshot the turn.

>and the car demonstrated that its intent was to continue straight, without changing lanes
No. The car is diagonal to the lane from the moment it leaves the driveway until the collision. It's the exact same idiotic lane-crossing-after-turn shit the motorcyclist did. If the car had entered the right lane, straightened out, signaled again, then entered the left lane, you would have a point.

>Once the car straightened up within its lane
Didn't happen.

>Finally, saying that the rider is responsible because he crashed into the car, then admitting that the car caused the rider to crash into him is circular reasoning.
No, it is not. There is a difference between legal culpability and cause. The driver of the car is legally culpable for the accident because he made an improper lane change followed by an improper U-turn. But both the driver and the motorcyclist contributed to the cause. It was extremely obvious that the car was doing something silly, and the motorcycle had plenty of time and space to avoid the collision.

If you want to play games about anticipating the other person's intentions, suppose the driver of the car saw the motorcycle enter the right lane and assumed he would stay there? That would be a stronger argument than yours since at least the motorcycle actually entered the right lane.

Bottom line: Motorcyclist riding like an idiot rides into the side of a car being driven poorly by another idiot.

Hey guys I just recently turned 18 and because I'm a disgusting dropout, I couldn't get my license until now.

How do I get into motorcycling? My motorcycle-cop dad is big on motorcycles, but he doesn't want me on a bike so he wont give me tips. He's also a Harley man, and I'm not looking to drive Cruiser bikes.

I probably should've gotten my License/Motorcycle Endorsement before making this post, that I have a DMV appointment next week, so I guess that's close enough.

>Your first argument that I don't feel like greentexting properly
The rider did keep a constant radius on his turn until the moment that he entered the right lane; whether his intent was to enter the left lane or the right lane was ambiguous. However, we do know that his signal was on - what we don't know is whether he indicated his lane change to the right lane, or his lane change back to the left lane. Regardless, he would not have indicated those lane changes within any distance required by law.

>If the car had entered the right lane, straightened out, signaled again, then entered the left lane, you would have a point.
No. If the car had straightened out, signaled, then changed lanes, we would not have had this problem in the first place; that's the entire premise of this argument.

>The car didn't straighten up
You're right. The car didn't get perfectly parallel to the lane - however, the car driver certainly maneuvered in a fashion that would indicate that the driver's intentions were to continue straight - at the very least the driver's actions were ambiguous enough to be interpreted as the intent to continue straight. More on ambiguity in the next bit.

>legal culpability and cause
I never mentioned legal culpability. You're ignoring the fact that I pointed out that the 'logic' that anon, or you, was/were using was circular. Getting to your point, I'm not 'playing games' about anticipating people's intentions - a common argument is that the rider should have seen the driver doing something strange, and stopped. However, that argument is illogical and impractical; if a motorcyclist stopped or significantly changed course, or similar, every single time a car driver did something vaguely strange or unusual, they might as well "just get off the road and stop driving," as a previous anon put it, at which point they would, themselves, present a hazard to all road users.

>since at least the motorcycle actually entered the right lane
He also entered the left lane. Don't pick and choose when you follow your own standards. Even still, if we assume he would signaled his lane changes in the 100 feet required by Texas law, he the outcome of the accident would have been the same.

Just google motorcycle classes sponsored by your city/state. Mine was 3 days, 1 afternoon in the classroom and 2 days on a bike, which they provided. At the end they test you and if you do well enough, they give you a waiver which you take into the DMV to have your endorsement added to your license

It's pretty low quality so it's hard to tell but isn't that a red light?

It's a red light for the left turn lane, which is how we know the car turning left ran a red light. You can see that the rider has a green light to proceed straight, meaning that the car driver could not possibly have had right of way over the rider.

I know you're riding "bikers can do no wrong" cock real good, but your opinion is short-sighted and you have the wrong outlook.

Everyone who watches that video can plainly see two things:

+ A car violate traffic rules, putting themselves and others in danger.
+ A biker who can easily see that said car is oblivious to the world around them.

Now, what any halfway-skilled motorist (bike or car) would do at this point, is slow down, and wait for said car to finish whatever dumb shit they're trying to pull.
This is called defensive driving, and is smartest way to avoid a painful crash, dealing with the other driver, dealing with road rage, dealing with shitty insurance (if they have it), dealing with repairs (to your vehicle and body), and overall, smartest way to avoid about 1-3 months worth of dumb headachey nonsense.

But what did this motorcyclist do? He plainly viewed said car pulling some dumb shit, and HE SPED THE FUCK UP.

The car violated the law, and the driver should be punished as such. But the biker is a moron who needs to write "stupid games, stupid prizes" on the inside of their helmet.

And as far as a lawsuit would go, it could easily be argued that both parties in this collision were at fault. Easily.

You people keep acting like you have the ability to foresee an accident. And you assume, first of all, that I ride, and second of all, that I think that riders can do no wrong, and those two assumptions are obviously related. Little do you know, I've posted plenty of webms where riders do stupid shit - you even replied to one of them. So drop this autistic assumption that any rider will defend any other rider, regardless of their actions, to the death.

I've been over this before; the rider sped up because the car driver gave ample indication that they intended to continue straight. I'd also like to point out that the rider slowed down each time the car driver messed up, but the second time, he couldn't slow down fast enough - so "he sped up!" is not a valid blanket-argument. I can guarantee you that if you put the car in the bike's place, and vice versa, and this accident played out the same way, almost nobody would be saying "why didn't the car slow down?"

And if you want to talk about lawsuits, anything can be argued - and your argument would easily be shot down.

not giving input on the bars when they're oscillating while simultaneously pushing down on them seems like it could be a difficult task, I'm guessing this is easier at lower speeds?
>>
>>1617430
It is difficult. That's why people who encounter tank slappers usually crash. The best way to fix a tank slapper is with a steering damper, which uses viscous oil to prevent the bars from ever getting into a state of negative dynamic stability in the first place.
