I think he had a great day, that kind of stupidity usually gets you killed.

I know...it's road's fault.

Could have been worse, to not hit the car is the only option left at that point.

A jaunt down the ditch and though the field is much better than to hit the car.

I bet he learns to not swing wide without looking anymore. As so we all have learned if we survive.

Did you notice that the guy in the florescent suit said 50 MPH speed limit?
Yeah, for some reason Britain mixes metric measurements with miles and miles an hour. A bike sold in the UK has a mph speedometer just like the US. They also measure weight in stones.

I counted 5 "SLOW" warnings painted on the road... what a tool...

Clearly riding above his head. If he had crossed the center to cut the corner and straighten the turn, I would have thought he was just stupid.

In this case, he sets up on the inside, apexes early and then would have had to really turn it to stay in his lane.

3 mistakes:
Too fast
Not looking ahead
Not knowing the road

And even worse....he didn't have the skill to mitigate the mistakes....

He's very lucky all he got was a smashed up bike and a bruised ego.

But then again...haven't we all been lucky once or twice when we were stupid?

This pretty much sums it up for me. :thumbup:
