    This is why crappy riders hurt the rest of us.

    "...investigators think speed was to blame..."

    No... A rider who didn't know what he was doing was to blame.

    I don't know who this Doohan character is (nor why he finds it necessary to print his name on his leathers), but he'll never be any good as long as he's all crossed up like that.

    It was also on The Today Show this morning... Matt wanted to know why someone was there filming to catch the accident and someone mentioned GoPro Camera's...

    :lol3

    On the video clip "RickyMouse" was ghosted in the bottom right..

    Wow, I thought reporters were suppose to know a little about the clips they were discussing..

    Speed? really???? Counting bike lengths from the time it seems he reacted to seeing them to hitting them is about 10 bike lengths roughly. Figure 6 ft/ bike. That was 2 seconds. So about 30/sec. Or less bump it up to 35 ft/ sec to be generous. that works out to about 24 MPH.

    6ft /bike x 10 = 60 ft

    On the taep from the jerk up to impact is about 2 sec

    60 ft/2 sec = 30 ft/sec
    30 ft/sec x 60 sec/min x 60 min/hr x 1 mile/5280 ft = 20.5 mph

    So add a huge fudge factor and call it a massive 30 mph.

    arrrgggh.... bad enough he hit the cyclists but blaming it on speed rather than rider reaction is silly.

    That you would think this scares me. That you would admit that you so think is beyond belief. The MSM and competence aside from intended distortions to make things out to fit their own agenda doesn't exist.

    I'm on the advertising side of the media business...print media. I don't assume the worst yet it's often confirmed. What's worse than ignorance is lack of common sense combined with politically correct agenda belief based bias..

    Open minded is rare... best to garner information from multiple sources to ferret out truth. Most don't put the time into doing that...

    Well, the guy obviously cant ride. Someone who could would have easily gotten around those bikers. I just figured if he cant ride, he's probably used to crashing.....so....stick to what you know

    It's painfully obvious he doesn't know how to ride... He should forget everything he knows, and get some proper training before he kills someone.

    Reporters generally do know about the clips. Overpaid anchors just read words and try to look good. Lauer isn't a reporter, and hasn't been for almost 30 years.

    He could have as easily missed bitumen under the wheels.
