Wait for it…

“On my way to lunch with my mother, a bigger bike took over at high speed. My reflex to look back costed the few precious seconds to realize traffic had stopped on my lane. I spent a couple of months recovering from the knees injuries (and was the only one to have physical injuries from the accident.”

    Better get over that “looking back” reflex. Especially on a bike you use the mirrors.

      Only time I “look back” is to shoulder check.

    The kid is lying about a ‘reflex’ making him look back. The other bike had nothing to do with the accident. The kid was traveling too fast himself and not paying attention to what was ahead. In the video, I could see the VW stopped *before* the kid looked to the left. From the sound of the engine, it seems he was still accelerating when he hit the VW.

      And he was making a video, which may have contributed to the crash.

  • A valuable lesson at a fairly low price – will he learn it, though?
