Similarly, if you are in a position to avoid, or brake, in traffic, you need to be aware of how far back the vehicles are, or the last thing going through your mind will be your butthole.
#1 selling road car is the Ford Focus, 174ft from 100km/hr. Light hatchback.
The slowest of supersports bikes (R-1) is 133 feet, a CBR will stop in 126 feet.
That means at typical gaps on the 401, that hatchback is going right through you. But, you have to consider auto braking distances assume an empty vehicle, driver only, reality is rarely that. 18 wheeler with loads can take up to 600 feet.
I assume an SUV, with half-worn tires, with >55 year old reflexes. Maybe you guys only ride in front of a Corvette ZO6 driven by Ron Fellows, with fresh tires. You have to realize the reality of the road , and while you may be legally in the right, you can be dead right.
Just watched the video, pretty amazing evidence how basically both rider and driver lost their temper. Without having more information on what happened BEFORE the video, I'd say the rider asked for it.
Either case, I did notice the gas tank truck on the right lane... so imagine that the driver ram into the rider a couple more seconds after, the rider just MIGHT end up going under the truck.... and we can all see what would've came out of that one.
Darwin's theory proven once more. Niiiice

You can clearly see how dangerous the car get close to the bike when the bike just over took it.
The car wasnt slowing down at all. They're both at fault here.
However the bike will get the worse treatment. This is why biker should think of their health first, fck ego...
If the car driver was a jerk, being a moron back only make it worse for yourself.
Some years ago, I remember on the 401, I believe near Woodstock, where a couple of brain-deads got into a brake_check war. Both were in cars on their morning commute; one was killed, and the non-killed one got charged with manslaughter. They sure showed each other who's the man! If anyone can recall this incident, please share the link. Brake-check= **** for brains
This is a third time this very same video gets re-posted on this forum during the same day.
How many more to come?
Now you see me. Now you don't.
