I don't think braking was even part of the problem in most of these situations... Lack of braking was. :lolno:

Oh, and yes, braking was the problem for the biker, but he should have started braking much earlier and with more caution. ;)

Oh man, yeah, his rage is so understandable and her excuse so tired... Not the most constructive way to handle the situation, but if at her age she hasn't learned that a driver waving you in means absolutely nothing, then she needs to hand in her keys.

Also, for the love all that is holy people, don't ever wave anyone in, don't stop and let people turn in front of you, etc. Just be as predictable as humanly possibly by following right of way...

He should have left that well enough alone. He didn't get hit, didn't go down and from the video, doesn't even look like he was really in any harm. What did they teach us in the MSA course? Watch out for left-hand turners, they always turn in front of you, and don't let anybody hit you.

In my opinion, he should have just let this go and moved on. Other than scaring that poor old woman, what was accomplished?

I count 5-seconds from the time that car starts to move over before he hits it. If he were paying enough attention, this accident would have been avoided. You can see the cars are all stopped up there and yet he rides on like there's nothing going on. :prob:

My father told me once that you should never drive more than 10mph faster than the lane next to you. That is, if the traffic to your right is moving slowly, don't go blowing past them just because you can. Accidents like this can result.

Those points are all my exact takeaways as well. Dude didn't even think about the brake, and he's got to be doing 30 mph faster than the rest of traffic. Having witnessed the buffoonery that takes place around HOV lanes, there's no way I'll ever put my bike in one. I'd rather overheat on the shoulder. The whole thing wasn't 100% his fault, but he could 100% have avoided it.
Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
