    I remembered this thread when I saw this cager targeting this Versys. No doubt about it.
    You can see the Cager lean over and pause and then open the door and the perfect time.

    Please go to 1:06.



    The lesson leaned is to slow down a little more in these settings and watch the Cager and see if they are leaning over a bunch toward the passenger door.

    The Cager in the Jeep must have a crap life.

    Edit:
    I'm 100% wrong.

    Wondering aimlessly if i'm wandering aloud.
    You'd think so.

    But if you actually watch and listen to the whole thing, the guy who's car the biker crashes into, was telling the guy in the Jeep his gas cap was open, which is why he opened the door. His window doesn't work on that door.

    He should have still looked.

    Interesting.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I did not hear that.
    I did hear the Jeep say his window do not roll down without hesitation.

    Could have been one of those communting deals.

    Some times accidents happen.

    The Rider on the Versys posted up.

    Here is his Channel



    Looks like the Jeep got in trouble. He sent the video to the Police and Insurance and both found him at fault.

    If this happened on the 8th that is some quick turn over!

    Edit
    On YouTube he said he will $4,000.
