    Link: Almost Died - He may ride a gay bike, but this is just too much punishment to take from behind.

    What am I missing here? What does a gay bike have to do with anything? What does a bike of any kind have to do with anything? A truck hit a car, wow.

    Why did the guy who filmed this decide to film his ride through the countryside? I smell douchebaggery.

    This happened close to Chattanooga. It was a funeral procession that was turning into a cemetery and the oncoming cars had stopped out of respect. The truck did not stop and plowed into the rear of the car that had stopped. Early in the video you will notice a truck swerving into oncoming traffic trying to get people to pull over, even though it is not required by law. Very dangerous situation that has caused a bit of debate around here.

    @jbluna: That is a terrific explanation! Thanks!

    The bad truck driver has NO excuses, it`s 101% his fault. I hope no one was injured in the car. Those bikes would have been "roadkill"...

    @fancythat: Once you get one of those cams? You record everything! Every single trip. It`s a VERY good idea, especially on a bike...

    "Jesus! It`s a funeral procession! God Forbid!"

    Is that what`s said at the end? Sounds like a Tennessee accent...

    im not a fan of crotch rockets (mainly because 90% of the riders are the worlds biggest d-bags, but there are a few good ones) but in this instance, its the BIKERS that are the respectful ones in this situation and pulled over. the car that got nailed was reacting to the bikes stopping. here in SC, we treat processions like ambulances and try to give way. people have no respect these days.

    How are the oncoming drivers supposed to know it`s a funeral? I have never seen a funeral where the cars did have their lights on, and did not have funeral flags on the cars. Also having oncoming traffic stop is a custom, not a law. Where I live I have never heard of oncoming traffic stopping for a funeral and I would not stop for what appears to be a line of traffic in the other lane. The driver of the truck may not have been aware of this custom, and may have been distracted by some idiot in the funeral procession pulling into his lane.

    Here is a news link for this story

    BTW I`m not saying the driver of the truck was not at fault, because he should have been paying attention to the traffic in front of him.

    What a flippin` idiot. Guys on the bikes are lucky. I don`t know about the rest of the states but here in the South, we get pretty defensive when it comes to funeral processions. Especially when a ssholes try to cut into one or drive next to it! I have aided in blocking traffic a few times in a procession. And biker funerals are even more intense.

    @5Cats YEP! And it could be TN or Southern KY :-D The landscape looks about right.

    I know it`s a terrible caption. I don`t really like "crotch rocket" style motorbikes, they just seem douchey.
    Anyways...It was late and I was drunk and tired. I couldn`t think of anything so I put in the caption and left a note for the mods to change it if they could think of something snappy. I guess they couldn`t.

    Gay bike? That`s a nice bike, and he obeyed all the rules of the road, and all the rules of biking, including pulling off the road in stalled traffic. Saved his life.

    It`s generally not a good idea to stop in the middle of the road for no f***ing reason, as the douchebag in the Blue Nissan found out. It`s also not a good idea to drive 40 mph faster than road conditions would suggest, as the douchebag in the black Dakota pickup found out.

    fancythat- It`s a `thing` with some bikers to buy a gopro camera- or an equivalent, record their rides and post them on vlogs. Because like Facebook timelines, the world is dying to know what boring crap you`re doing.

    On a second viewing, I heard some woman announce that it was a funeral procession. In that case, their headlights should have been on. Maybe they were, and you couldn`t tell in the video.

    That being said, you are supposed to pull to the side of the road and THEN stop, not stop in the middle of the traffic lane.
