So is this a good example of the phrase "I had no way out and went for the ditch?"

It looks like a time lapse photo. Looks like thats him ditching, then riding around the curve further down. Gotta love the pirate originality. I wonder how well that t-shirt does for impact or abrasion resistance? Is that CE rated?

I might follow a flatbed to be near enough to see the chaos if any. And I might follow a heavy standard semi to be near enough to see a tip-over. I am surprised that no one has posted a pic of a biker leading one of the semi's while doing the red flag thing for oncoming traffic? I have seen that at the gap.
