Was that a failed insurance scam attempt?

My advice? Stop riding.

If you want to continue to ride, learn how to do so. That would happen a lot more effectively with formal training. Sh*t like this happens EVERY day, when you ride. Absolutely nothing unusual about that.

MSF BRC, ERC will teach you how to control the bike to your advantage. The rider was not assessing the environment, and was not anticipating anything. A rider who lives, will process the environment at least a few seconds into their future at all times. Long range scan, mid range scan, short range scan....... Plan your escape. Always have a plan. Don't ride faster than you can stop in the space that you can see. Sightlines are life lines.

I know very few riders, who have failed to become exceptional drivers as a result of that habit.
PainfullySlo and teri like this.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

I assume the rider locked up front tire causing the bike to go down. I cant imagine locking the rear , bike stops , rider does not put his/her feet down.

Dude.....you're about to get roasted. You pour soul

I can't believe the biker actually fell. I hate to have to say it but you have to learn to ride much better if you are gonna ride on the street. This situation was clearly avoidable , CLEARLY. Now go learn to ride. I say that only because if you don't and you continue to ride on the street you are probably gonna die.

That wasn't front tire lock. That was the rider laying it down out of fear of crashing into the vehicle. Bar input put it down.
