The 2nd one, the car sure seemed to be gettin' on it, the biker probably didn't think it was there already. Biker still MAJOR dumb-a$$--- curving wheelie in traffic, no helmet, on tape.

Yuck..made me ill all over again...almost the exact same accident I had in 84 on brand new 1000 Interceptor. Guy pulled in to the gas station, I hit him at 50mph and the impact sent me up and over the car and my bike welded itself to the front end of the car so hard it never even fell over. My complete racing suite let me walk away with just a few hundred bruises.

In one of the many reports on this type of stuff I remember reading that they believe it has to do with their (the cage driver) relative safety.
When they see a semi, their (ours too) brain needs a wider margin for them to feel safe. The smaller the approaching vehicle is the less threatened the driver feels and the brain gives an OK to go....
YES, this can be overcome by someone who cares and is actually driving/operating their vehicle instead of just being on auto pilot all the time.

I believe poor driver training is one of the biggest problems in this country.

:agree:

Driver training is basically a joke in america. And the penalties for accidents which are clearly driver error especially when a death occurs are so nominal that people dont care what happens anymore.
