Good job proving my point, doublenigger.
>>
>>26101511
He has about half a second to react to that, and you do see him begin to shift.
Your initial reaction would probably be:
>"Holy shit what the fu-" *BONK*
Had a similar encounter once with a dipshit and I reacted, moved, but it didn't change the outcome whatsoever, it happens so fast.
>>
>>26101536
Not him, but when I'm riding, I keep my head on a swivel constantly. Obviously we can't see what the lead up looked like, but I have a hard time believing he couldn't have seen the car approaching the intersection at Mach 2 without intention to brake and reacted sooner.
Regardless, if you refuse to ride a bike cause you're worried that a freak accident will take you out in the rare situation where you have no control to avoid it, you're too paranoid to ride anyways. 99% of things can be avoided with attentive riding, same as in a car.

>>
>>26101605
If you're smart about it, you can ride for years without incident, or even indefinitely. It's not like you're guaranteed to crash or anything. It's mostly 19yp guys on liter bikes, and sometimes the occasional retard car drivers that take people out

This dude could have got hit standing on the sidewalk
>>
>>26101630
I used to think otherwise, but since getting a bike for commuting and trail riding to my favorite shooting spots, I've since learned that most people actually do seem to think it's all about looking cool, highspeed-lowdrag knee to the pavement street racing and you're a literal psychotic for considering it

Who doesn't toy with the thought of suicide sometimes? Or, like, most of the time? Okay, maybe some people don't – like the happy scientist girl named Marie, or Jean-Marc, the superstar whom everyone loves. But you -- when the going gets rough, it's nice to think about your little trap door out of here. Do it. Put your finger on the eject button, see how alive it makes you feel -- the freedom of finality. Think of how much they'll *miss* you.

Looks like you thought about how much they'll *miss* you and the freedom of finality for too long, and now you've decided to actually kill yourself. The train leaves the station every evening, 21:00. Make sure you have a bike and witnesses. That's how macho anons do it.
>>
>>26101645
It just seems backwards. you can get a flashy sports car and "look cool" just putting around like you would in an econobox. Riding a motorcycle competently requires learning and maintaining a new skillset, exposing yourself to the elements, and giving up practicality and creature comforts
>>
>>26101654
I live in the PNW, so I got a drystar suit, boots and gloves. Even at 38F going 70 down the highway in rain, I'm toasty warm (except my hands, but my years of outdoor experience has taught me there's not much you can do about that)
>>

>>26101645
I ride mine for variety, when I want to get the wind in my hair and enjoy the sun on my arms as I drive along the Susquehanna. People that weave in and out of traffic, go down the split lane in rush hour, rev their bikes while stopped, etc. need to be gassed.

>the superstar whom everyone loves
Not a guarantee. Avicii and many others were exactly that.
>>
>>26101701
>pay attention
Paying attention includes anticipating hazards like this. I've been driving for decades and never been in so much as a fender bender, because I don't allow myself to get complacent around what is arguably the most deadly machine people have regular contact with. You aren't wrong in that you can never eliminate the hazard, but people ride for years without incident

$100 Bell Qualifier, Amazon
$40 HWK jacket, Amazon
Whatever decent jeans you have (reinforced jeans are a scam, you don't need that shit, nobody slides on exactly the same spot for 5 miles)
$30 for some on-sale hiking boots
$20 gloves, Amazon

Unless you're track riding or blasting down the highway regularly you don't need more than that. New riders shouldn't be going more than 40-50 mph and this gear will be enough for those speeds, especially considering you will likely brake at least a little before going down.
>>

>why is shit like this always in america
massive self-entitlement. most americans have meltdowns over the most minor of inconveniences, like following laws when driving. it's gotten really bad in the past couple years. people running red lights has become such a common occurrence in my city. and ofc the incompetent police don't do shit.

>s-shut up eurocuck

>>26101635
Except it happened in the middle of a road, which is much more likely, and he, being on a bike, is in the middle of the road much more of the time than a pedestrian is. I know, thinking is really hard if you have a preconceived position you need to defend at all costs.

Lexus SUV, so probably some suburban woman doped out of her mind on prescription meds. America's insane pharma industry is probably responsible for a lot of shit like this, along with plenty of the US's other problems. (In particular I think it's crazy that nobody ever talks about the way misfit kids are pumped full of mind-altering meds with very little oversight when discussing the causes of mass shootings and other social issues involving young people.)

You know what the funny thing is? Shit like this mostly happens in the US. You can meme on "walkable cities" all your want, but your infrastructure is stuck in the past. Those wide ass lanes full of parking lot exits, those intersections everywhere rather than roundabouts. What a mess
>>
Rode a motorcycle for many years. Eventually had a great powerful smooth bike modded to perfection.
Got wrecked in an accident caused by some idiot returning home early morning from partying on my way to work.
Made full recovery even though doctors said certain body parts wouldnt ever work normal again.

Drive just a cage since.
Every car even sports cars way beyond my budget feel nothing like the smooth acceleration and agility of my perfected bike. It was equal to a million dollar supercar yet inexpensive to maintain.
Ceased to care about vehicle performance since. Might as well just favor reliability. Now I slowly accelerate in a reliable commuter annoying aggressive drivers beating up their transmissions to get to the next red light faster.

Anything this catastrophically stupid can really only be a suicide attempt. He was still in his lane so doubt it was a medical emergency. Assume the plan was to slam into that cliff face and not a random truck but I guess it's hard to time a light when you need a half mile to get your cuckwagon up to max speed.

You either ride a harbley or a scooter don't you. In my experience those are the only two people who don't wave back and talk shit about other bikes/bikers. Meanwhile every sport bike and adv bike I pass gives a bro wave even if we're both lane splitting bumper to bumper traffic at 65mph. Hambleys are just the worst of bikers. All that noise with such slow bikes.
