    another accident caught on video.

    I figure we can learn something valuable from this video so I'll post it up.

    Lessons to be learned:

    For the filmer:
    Turn off the fucking camera and learn to ride, in one lane FFS......or if you are going to film something, twist the throttle a further passed 50km/h.

    For the rider who crashed:
    Focus on wearing some fucking gear instead of weaving around the lane like a noob.

    I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for people who show up to an awesome riding road like that with a hoodie, sneakers and no gloves on.

    I guessed the WOBBLER was going to be the one to crash right away, only idiots do that. Soon as the other two made a sketch pass, I then figured the Noob was gonna rear end the car. Yeah he didn't expect that car to pull out at all.

    That sucks for sure, good thing he was wearing leathers, boot and and gloves.....









    ...oh wait !!

    Looks like a noob trying to keep up and over reacting to a situation he should've been able to handle. Locks up the rear brake, high sides, and, hopefully, learns lessons about timing, vision, ego, and gear.

    Stop weaving around and pay f%$#ing attention.
    screw it, I'm leaving

    And learn to ride! Looks like it was all rear brake, and could have easily saved it, should have just stayed on the pavement.

    It looked like though it was initial rear brake, but then if you look close his right leg is flopping in the wind and the rear tire is still locked. Which would suggest to me that he locked up the rear brake initially, geared down and let the clutch out fast with no throttle.

    Likely he stabbed the rear without grabbing the clutch and stalled the bike. Be one big panic for sure, didn't end well for him. Let's hope he does better next time in his M3.
