The motorcycle crash at actual speed (not slow motion like the first video published a week ago). No music on this one; just the actual sounds recorded by the GoPro Hero HD helmet cam. You can see me riding the Victory Vision back down Mt Lemmon after the crash in another video published last week right after the original crash video in slow motion.
Motorcycle Crash at Deals Gap
Local KTM Rider passes us on a blind corner just to have a Stupid Harley
rider waiting for him in the middle of the road.
The Harley guy lost his gloves and was trying to pick em up, but the KTM
guy (was not with us) passed up because we were going little bit too slow
for his pace and came up on the HD guy. No one was injured and everyone
Guy opens his door on me.
Happened in November 2011. Finger still has a bruise under the nail 3
August 2012 ***Just to update. I won the claim. Driver is at fault. He
failed to check it was safe to open his driver door. Police also blamed
him at the scene of the accident.
I was within reach of the door due to it being the end of the junction.
Driver said he opened his door to ask the driver of the van behind him for
This Is Why I Always Ride With A Camera - DMV Harassment
I filmed this using my Drift GHOST camera and not with a GoPro, since so
many keep asking.
Before critiquing me, just try to think about this incident from a
motorcyclist's perspective before calling me "impatient" or "in a hurry."
If you listen to my voice when I speak to her, I am clearly calm and not
angry or overly-irritated. However, the erratic and unpredictable driving
by that van is highly serious to us motorcyclists, as it puts us at great
risk. When she stopped me in the middle of a green light, my first thought
is "Quick! Get over to safety before I'm rear-ended by a distracted
driver." This is why I made that move to the right both times. I wasn't
trying to pass or be aggressive; I was trying to get to safety because the
moron driver kept stopping when they shouldn't have. It's a common move
you will see many motorcyclists make. I honked the horn to make all
drivers around me know where I was, and it is legally warranted when in
dangerous situations like these. I don't have the same protection in a
steel cage that cars do and I have to take my safety extra seriously.
Please think on that before judging my actions from a non-biker
perspective. I want to raise awareness about the level of alertness and
vigilance motorcyclists have to maintain on a constant basis. More
consistent video uploads will be posted when my channel goes live next
Second, I will concede that my following distance in the first turn could
have been slightly larger. While I maintain that I kept a safe distance, I
would have allowed for an extra half second or so, had I been able to do it
Thirdly, please know that this video is not about me being perfect. I am a
human and I make mistakes all the time and admit them. Even if you believe
that I rode like a complete idiot, this video is mainly about the DMV
worker overstepping her bounds and threatening me when her position
warrants no such action. It was harassment, no matter how you look at it.
Fourth, if it wasn't clear in the video, I stopped in the parking lot
because I had DMV matters to take care of. A lot of commenters seem to
think I pulled over to have a discussion. Trust me, the last thing I was
looking for was a confrontation.
Finally, I am open to your opinions in the comments. If you read through
them, you will see many debates and disagreements. I only ask that you be
respectful. I have left up a few battered trolls to make a fun example,
but seriously, keep it professional or I'll just ban you. I don't need
filth on my page.
Last note: for those of you who will say that I should have given the
drivers license applicant more grace because they are new, I have this
response: if you are supposed to be taking a test that authorizes you to
operate a motor vehicle on public streets, you should already be competent
enough to drive that vehicle smoothly and correctly. If you can't do that,
then you shouldn't be on the roads with the potential to get a lot of
people hurt or killed, including us motorcyclists who are the most common
victims of driver unawareness. If you can't handle it, then it's back to
parking lots, driving school, and coached driving until you're ready.
Getting and keeping a license is an earned privilege, not a given right.
I'm adding the California Vehicle Codes related to this video. The driver
easily violated these four codes, and probably many more. What's worse,
the DMV worker admits in the video that she took the wheel and caused this
herself. She should know better.
(For those saying I turned too far to the right in the first turn)
"CVC 21717. Whenever it is necessary for the driver of a motor vehicle to
cross a bicycle lane that is adjacent to his lane of travel to make a turn,
the driver shall drive the motor vehicle into the bicycle lane prior to
making the turn and shall make the turn pursuant to Section 22100 [general
"CVC 22100. Except as provided in Section 22100.5 or 22101, the driver of
any vehicle intending to turn upon a highway shall do so as follows:
(a) Right Turns. Both the approach for a right-hand turn and a right-hand
turn shall be made as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge
of the roadway."
"CVC 22108. Any signal of intention to turn right or left shall be given
continuously during the last 100 feet traveled by the vehicle before
(at 0:21 you can clearly see the van driver doesn't even signal to turn
right until after they came to a complete stop)
"CVC 22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed
as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic...
No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway so as to
impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic unless the
stop is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law."
The speech is from Charlie Chaplin - Great Dictator, the most inspiring
speech I've ever heard
