Don't worry. This is somehow the fault of those stupid "cagers."

*watches video*

Just as I suspected. He fixed the cable.

One of those guys ran a stop sign or a red light.

His brother taught him to ride and told him don't worry about signals just gun it and go.

Looked like the guy who came in from the right was at fault, but its hard to say with any certainty due to the angle of the shot.  But I can't believe that side road didn't either have a stop sign or at least legally require him to yield.

It could be a "priority to the right" where the interviewee should have yielded to the vehicle to his right.

You're not fat.  You're just have big digits.

Possibly.  Although usually in those situations you don't just blow through them even if you believe you will have right of way.  You normally slow to evaluate the traffic situation and to make sure the other person is going to yield like they are supposed to.

Stupid cagers.

I can imagine a follow up video being that other biker doing a commercial for his attorney on tv.

"The other biker couldn't say why he didn't see me, I was there to be seen.  But Lee got me $300,000."

/Farkers who've heard of Lee knows that very commercial, only the biker said driver.

I've ridden my motorcycle in Paris and suburbs and it's jarring. If the other car knows they have priority, they do not slow down. It took my quite a long time to get used to it. Especially when a car would pop out from a small side street and they would just gun it.

SE Asian is another fun one.  People treating the shoulder on each side as additional 2 way streets.  Not to mention trying to figure out who has right of way, the motorcycle, the tricycle cart, or the elephant.

I can't imagine driving a bike in Paris traffic. I don't think I've been to a civilized city that has worse traffic.

\Hope your pipes were loud enough

If your going to use such a system you should at least put running lights on your vehicle.

I got rid of my motorcycle as I had lost the edge to be comfortable riding in city/highway traffic.  I used to kid that I would kid that I would have at least one near death experience a week.

Now I get my speed fix Karting.  My only regret is that I wish I had learned of this sport earlier in life.

don't think the interviewee looked right when he took off
