Feels good to ride a bike. I've only done it once. I've been around the internet to much to know you shouldn't ride around on two wheels if you're a brown guy. This guy learned to late though and despite wearing a helmet he didn't make it.
Hole in one
Motorcycles will stop very quick on a dry road especially if you use the front brake which this guy did not. Over 95% of your stopping power comes from the front brakes because the weight gets transferred to the front during hard braking. This dead fucker shouldn't have been riding without knowing how to stop properly in a panic situation. You can tell he laid on the back brake which is useless because the way he tail slid into stopped traffic. It takes many years to develop really good riding skills. He tried to stop the bike like it was a car and paid for it with his ass.
Last thing to cross his mind was his own asshole
Whobe no way.. Dude didn't see traffic was stopped and didn't get on it fast enough. He was sliding in at the beginning of the clip, I don't think from what is shown it can be said a better use of the front brake would have saved him. While I do agree with you on the front brake being the one to count on, I think this is a misjudgment in distance or movement in general. But you are correct sir that front brake is all you need.
Don't know for sure, but maybe he was thinking of shooting the gap until the car in front moved to the middle of the road. Doesn't matter now though. Only things missing were an all out rag-doll and flying flip-flops.
You wanna ride the middle? Have it your way.
in asia its the evil mopeds in the states its the evil motorcycle that kills you
Kinda hard to stop (safe) when your doing 200 mph.
The cause of this accident was that box on the inside median of the highway A MF" BOX?
@billybadbird Hitting the back brake at speed is like trying to stop on ice. I have had other riders slide past me when stopping for a sudden red light. He may have not have avoided the accident because he was not paying attention but he could have greatly reduced the impact by using the front brake for all it had or started to lock up. To be honest the back brake is almost useless at speeds above 20 mph during a panic stop. If you know what you are doing you can do a front wheelie on almost any bike. Trust me on this one if he had ABS he might have avoided the accident or hit the cars at a lot less speed. I finally hung up my helmet after almost 42 years of riding only because there are to many distracted drivers. Talking on the phone, texting, putting on makeup looking at yourself in the visor mirror and wearing ear buds while driving should be outlawed and carry heavy finds and points because it its proven to be just as bad as DUI. You might as well be driving blindfolded with ear plugs in. To whoever doesn't believe in what I said maybe you will think different if one of your children is killed because of a distracted driver.
He's dead, end of story.
@truckingman dude you're right literally boxed in
DAMN IT HE MISSED THE BOX WHEN HE GOT KILLED SCOOP IT UP AND COOK IT
is that two guys on the bike? looks like one has a grey helmet and the other a black one..
