First Person View of motorcycle accident

Very little time to react, but my thought is why the idiot in the left lane locked it up in the first place?

Still good to see and make you remember that it can happen

The idiot thought he was gonna hit the car in front of him. I had the same exact thing happen to me, but I was in a cage in college. Got a $1250 check from the insurance company for the long scratch the dumb chick put on the side of my car for it. Had I been on a bike I would have been toast.

Man you ppl are harsh - I love how ppl feel this strong desire to cap on others who are just posting what is new to them and want to share

I witnessed a similar accident that could have borught me down the same way. It happened to me and my wife while we were driving to Milwaukee on I294 A stupid cabbie was driving on the right shoulder(he thought it's a lane) and a few people were behind him. After a mile 2 kids had their card stopped on the shoulder. I saw them put the brake next to me and went past them. After I passed them I saw in the mirror one guy in a caddilack spin in the middle of the highway, I was thinking " If I was a few second behind in the same spot, I would have been toast". I had a couple close calls on the fine chicago highways, I'm keeping my distance from the front car, they're all idiots.

It may be a repost, but I never get tired of looking at that chick's cleavage.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

First time I've seen the video....
Looks like right rear wheel locked up, you can see it quite clearly.
Seized caliper?
Doubt he grabbed a handful of e-brake though (what reason?)
Unless he was trying to be a STUNNA
