When it's not your time

Who says that motorcycles are more dangerous than cars? When it's your time to go you will go. When it's not your time, stuff like this happens.

Re: When it's not your time

Wow, that looked almost targeted. Did that guy do something to tick off Vladimir Putin?

And by the way, shame on the white SUV for passing that bike in his lane.

That motorcyclist needs to collect insurance information to claim the damage to his underwear during that accident.

Re: When it's not your time

The way he kept on riding it looks like he wasn’t even aware the accident had occurred.

No he zigged and zagged a bit to miss debris. Also the white suv was in front of him and then suddenly gone. I'm sure he was very aware.

I would guess he was in a little bit of shock....

Re: When it's not your time

If the white SUV hadn't made that pass it would have taken out the rider without a doubt. Scary stuff!
