...another driver either "shooting the gap" or "looking IN the gad station parking lot instead of the road she's crossing" or "just plain dumb"- YOU decide:

Classic left-turn-in-front-of-rider. It probably the driver's fault, but the rider may have been going too fast for conditions. A bit less speed and the rider may have been able to avoid that accident. Not to say that the driver isn't wrong, but sometimes it doesn't matter who's "wrong" when a bike is involved.

Saw that two years ago....run that image through my mind EVERY TIME I see the left turn signal blinking on a cage facing me as I close the gap. I keep thinkin', "When-they-gonna-turn ????....when-they-gonna-turn ????....". It's worse when they don't have a signal blinking.

I used to enjoy the occasional "Superman" off of a YZ400 out in Elsinore when I was back in my teens......shake it off, kick the starter, and off I'd go.......that one looks like it hurt a WHOLE LOT MORE !!!!!!

The scariest thing is wondering if that turning car sees you.

Yeah, I go under the assumption that they don't, but you have to trust them at least a little, or else you couldn't ride at all.

I just assume they're going to pull in front of me... guess I'm just a pessimist...
