    Poor riding skills and worse decision making skills = what you see here. Idiot could have avoided this completely; Failing that, he could have gone further to the right or laid his bike down.
    Between his insurance company and those he injured, I hope he got it stuck to him but good.

    Having never been on a motorcycle, I found this analysis of the crash helpful. It`s a bit long, but worth watching:

    @CaptKangaroo: You are 100% correct! He was going TOO FAST for that turn! Based on his skill level I mean. It`s called "The Snake" for a reason, eh? There`s a few similar turns in Winnipeg which novice motorcyclists wipe out on. Long bending curves require more skill or less speed!

    He simply could not keep his bike from slamming into those cyclists. Physics! He should have hit the brakes HARD and only crashed himself, but he didn`t.

    Helmet on the cyclist? Saved his life in this case.

    This was an EXCELLENT video! Shows what happened, the aftermath, all that good stuff that makes it interesting!

    Thx @Oystah!

    @MrPeabody: That`s an outstanding analysis! I was hoping he`d drive by the spot where it happened though... alas!

    Bikes I`ve rode:
    78 Kawasaki KZ-400 (pile of junk!)
    75 Kawasaki KH-400 (3 cylinder, 2 stroke!)
    76 Kawasaki KZ-650 (4 cylinder, runs forever!)
    83 Yamaha XJ-750 (4 across, liquid cooled, 5 valve, DOHC, runs forever)
    2008 Ducatti 1000 Monster (My Brother owned it! Stinking fast!)

    I`m no "expert biker" though...

    Good reason not ride a bike on a highway -- douchebags who can`t handle their motorcycles.

    Cyclists were at fault. And sitting there, bleeding and poo, acting like he`s hurt so he can sue the poor guy. What has this world come to?
