I second the opinion on the caveat. I mean, I've seen people panic in the corner, lock up the breaks and then swerve abruptly into the path of several riders who were moving faster but simply had nowhere to go.

There comes a point of no return where you kind of hope that the guy up ahead keeps his shit together in the corner. More skilled riders are more capable of abruptly averting a disaster and going around a downed bike. But the distribution of accountability becomes more proportional to the skill levels of everyone involved as the margin of error becomes reduced.

So, I mean maybe he thought you grabbed a handful of break, ran it wide, and in his unskilled prowess, he became an unwitting victim of unfortunate time/place.

Shit, just last season I almost took out a control rider who had come to an abrupt creep whilst drifting into the middle of a straightaway after we had all cranked on the throttle coming out of a corner so his student could catch up.

It was one of the dumbest things I've ever seen a control rider do. Myself AND the guy behind me about shit our pants but we had a good chuckle about it afterwards. Pretty sure I got that on video, too.

Simple. Rider 2# fault, becouse, you have to keep safe distance. Safe distance is 2 stopping distances, so at at 90 km/h stopping distance is about 40 meters, so safe distance is 80 meters, if distance was less than 40 meters, its #2 fault.
Second safty rule, is that rider stopping distance must be less than visibility distance.

Im driving teacher and this applies to everyone.
If you have to go to court, you will win if you are rider #1
