Like the title sates a rider was down in the newport area of port moody. Rider is ok i missed my turn and was topped at a light and he was behind me. I accelerated quick off the line to get into the slow lane to make the next turn on my r6 and i guess the guy behind me on his duc 998 decided to gun it to catch up and completely lost control at a pretty good speed the bike slide about 22 or more feet and slammed into the back of a van. Everybody is ok and was able to walk away from it. The bike slide right past me and missed taking me out by no more than 10 inches. Unfortunately he only had his L so i assume he just started riding. So they most important thing i can say is people please dont buy a litre bike as your first bike it is way to much bike to learn on as he found out the hard way and unfortunately for him will probably be shit on by icbc as he was riding alone against his restrictions. so everyone ride safe and take care.
