    29 seconds of pain and agony



    Rated "R" for language. So for you Aussie's- whats the procedure for dealing with an ass like the black car driver?

    Ouch!
    How about the white car? At first, I'm thinking, " he's pulling away with the rider, oh no"
    It would be hard not to pull the black cars driver out of the car by his throat, IMHO

    That's probably my biggest concern when riding. Getting plowed while waiting at a stop sign or light. I hope the guy is all right.

    1981 Honda GL500, abandoned bike that was stripped and "Left 4 Dead", pieced together and getting another run at the road. Ugly and rough around the edges, like the owner, but enthusiastic, fun, and surprisingly reliable. Its a Honda, so you know it's going to start when you hit the button.

    Yea - my biggest concern as well. I try to leave some room in front of me and look in my mirrors when I'm stopping just to keep an eye out for this very scenario, but you can't predict everything. Going to replace my black helmet with a Scorpion Hi-vis one. Can't hurt.......

    I've been rear ended twice in my life while driving a car. I am so paranoid of rear end collisions now I am constantly looking in my rv mirror and tapping my brakes to flash the lights. Hope the guy in the vid made it and I hope the driver of the car that hit him realizes his own negligence.

    If I was able to walk after that I would count my blessings and not get violent.. But I would look forward to the insurance payoff.
    Beating his ass just gets you in trouble, and I am sure the the driver was probably having nightmares for a while.

    I'll try to make this short. Was going to dinner, didn't know if to take bike(GL500) or ride with friend. Decided to ride with friend. At a red light, we got rear-ended. Totaled friends car, pushed us through intersection. I figured if I'd been riding that day, I'd have died. Sold my bike soon afterwards, and didn't ride again for 25+ years. Only started riding again this year. That is the one scenario that freaks me out the most, and I also flash my brake light, and maybe say a short prayer, when I see cars coming up behind me at stoplights.

    If it doesn't make you smile, you're on the wrong bike.

    *Whew* From our lips to the Fathers ears....prior to this video I hadn't really considered getting rear ended. I mean if you can't see whats in front of your car why are you driving? But then the more I studied it the more I'm starting to feel a bit like a moving target,,,,Lora Hunt, Woman Charged After Painting Her Nails Causing Fatal Crash, Sentenced To 18 Months In Jail and she's a NURSE?
