Think! Look, Look, and Look Again for Motorcycles

It's motorcycle season again in the Midwest! It's time to keep your eyes peeled for Motorcycles. Look, Look, and Look again!!

Holy sh*t! That made me flinch. That did not look like it had a happy ending.

It did remind me to be more careful when I’m ‘diving’.

In those states where you actually get a winter, when springtime comes and the bikes are seems like the cagers forget to look for them.

Great video, I've grabbed it to share on my facebook page as well because bikes will be on the road here in a week or so.

Thanks for posting.

That ought to be viewed by everyone getting their license - whether its a renewal or what! That would be a GREAT way to educate the younger drivers, because if that can scare the crap out of ME, then it would make a 17 year old cry. Great video!!

I see that clip every Spring. And every Spring it makes me just as sick to my stomach as it did the year before.

I think bikers tend to look a little better than most because we're aware of such things. We need to pass this clip to all the non-riders that we know.

mwhaahahahaha! I'm sorry, Im sorry, hahahahahahahaha! Man...that's so not funny....hahahahaha!

Whew...that was frickin' scary as hell. You know why I'm laughing? I need to know if that was a real dude on that bike or if it was a dummy on a remote controlled deal.

I would do that for enough money. The guy on the bike was going way too fast for that street.

Heh, I had to look, look and look again. Then I had to think, think and think again. I'm going to watch it again now.

The good thing is the vid made it's point.

I saw the Brit's version of this a few years ago for the first time and it scared the crap out of me. This sort of thing, besides deer, is my biggest fear while riding. And yes, as others pointed out, it seems every spring the cagers have to re-process that motorcycles are also on the road. I agree that it should be part of driver training to watch this. I wish they'd run it on TV.

Oh...and Dave's right. That guy was definitely going way too fast on the bike. Notice at the end when the guy "looks again" how much slower the bike is going when it leisurely passes in front of the guy.

Scary shit. Great video, Great point. FLHX Dave also has a good point. I think the motorcyclist is going way too fast. He looks like he's doing at least 55 MPH in a residential that should have a max 35MPH speed limit.
