except looking at a failing light shine up through 30' of water. :huh
I think the camera man is partially to blame. The swimmer appears to be riding over his level to begin with, the cameraman stopped in his path doesn't help either when trying to throttle up a hill.
Couldn't play the audio on that (at work), is that how deep the bike was?!!:eek1
Dude's foot must be made of Titanium!!!

Rider in video above obviously riding too fast for his line of sight. Instead of doing the safe thing, braking or passing on left, he cut off the pedestrians exit route.
That's one way of looking at it.
He wouldn't have had to go back and retrieve the GLOVE he dropped if he'd been wearing them! Duh! Winning!
My 1st trip to Deals Gap was May, 1996. Speed limit was 55. And it stayed that way for a few more yrs. It was still 55 in June of 2000. Somewhere bwteen 200 and 04 when the repaving and new shoulders went in, the speed limit dropped.
Classic target fixation, person was moving to edge of road, and it would have been real easy for the bike to swing wide, instead he fixated on the guy and tracked him all the way to the shoulder, like a laser guided missile.
If he looked where he WANTED to go, it would have been a non event IMHO
oh no. it appears that bike was only 4 or 5 feet under water.
i was referring to a buddies 2 year old sportsman 500 that went under the ice last year at lake simcoe.
How much lube do you need to screw a catchers mit?:huh
Your slipping man! This thing is in this thread and a couple other places on the site, its been posted so many times its 820
Really? I see it as the pedestrian was in the center of the road, the rider aimed for the shoulder, then the pedestrian ran to the shoulder at the last second.
The last place I would want to go to avoid a dumbass pedestrian is into a lane where there might be oncoming cages.
What sort of idiot would deliberately run off a twenty-foot wide road to avoid a two foot wide obstacle (moving or not)? Should also have been going much slower to begin with of course. What if it had been kids crossing the road?
Shit like this is why riders like this SHOULD be hammered by the authorities.
Did I miss the other rider's bike? The guy who dropped the glove?
I hit a pedestrian once. With well over a 100k miles of street riding my only crash was a pedestrian. I did not have time to stop, while braking hard I counter-steered behind the direction he was going and he changed direction. I did what I could but my brake lever caught his ribs which launched me and sent him to the ground hard.
It seems like the rider went the wrong way, but we weren't there and maybe the guy changed directions. I am sure the sumo guy is looking back and seeing the mistakes, by hindsight is 20-20.
On the outside of the bend, just before the rider himself comes into view
