Good Vid although faked but sure makes the point.

A good link to send to our friends and relatives. But most riders "see" bikes on the road the way cagers do not.

That video did make me wonder why I didn't see the bike during the first run though. That's because the driver's head was blocking the view of the bike. I was pleased when I realized the trick that had been played on me.

Thumbs up

That is a brilliant clip! How many times has this nearly happened to yourselves and only by keeping alert and being aware if your surroundings kept you from being a bonnet ornament?

They should show this sort of thing during driver training. M/C riders are road users too, a lot of cagers seem to forget that.

Thanks again for posting that link Ron.
