Oh, and the guy in the back could have easily avoided that accident if he didn't target fixate. He had just come out of a short, quick wheelie and his front wheel was on the ground. It was definitely the fault of the guy in back, not the one in front. The second guy honestly never needed his brakes, he just needed to look where he wanted to go. Instead, he completely stared down the other rider and grabbed a handful of brake, looking precisely where he DIDN'T want to go the whole time. He learned the VERY HARD way what target fixation will do. I've been there myself and I know it's easier said than done sometimes, but it's something that every rider should practice. You have to look where you want to go, all the time. If you stare at that pothole in the road, what do you think you're going to run over? Yep, that pothole in the road. Look around it and your bike will go where you want it to go.

The first guy looked back before he turned! Maybe he should have looked twice!
I think the other guy was doing a stopie and didn't see the first bike turning.

D.A. District Attorney??????????
D.O.A. dead on arrival????????

I did see him get up then fall.

Yes, the first guy looked back, but it is the responsibility of the person in back to avoid the accident, which he could have EASILY done. The guy in back was getting on it and pulled up in a short wheelie. He then saw that the guy in front was stopping to turn, so he grabbed a handful of brake, resulting in a stoppie. However, the lane is plenty wide enough for him to go around on the outside, if he just would have looked to the outside, instead of fixating on the guy in front.

D.A. = Dumb A$$ And no, I'm NOT calling you one.

If you watch closely at the end of the vid, you see the guy run off the road and fall down in the grass, but he's farther away from the camera, near the vehicle on the side of the road.

Just another time you would have to know the whole story to really know.
I think we all have seen this or at least heard about it close to home.
Maybe not this bad or even worse!
D.A$$ That's for sure!

I know capt...just givin ya *****!!

And I wouldn't be so fast to judge the guy in the back! You don't know what the deal was suppose to be. They were probably suppose to be doing double wheelies or somin! Ya just don't know...the vid could be mis-leading!
