    Dramatic new video shows the motorcyclist hitting the cargo and being thrown into the air Boater's unsafe concern for odd gear not scratching his gel coat managed to send poor cyclist rag-dolling down the road.

    Guess this justifies the Calif law that any towed vehicle must travel in the right lane except to pass.
    Rider was one lucky fella for sure. I do feel he could have avoided, but that's just me.
    As for the video cam folks.... I would have pulled over into the cycle riders lane or the left shoulder. Damn dangerous to do that in Cal.

    this is a really good reason to not wear shorts, must have been a new rider. sure nice to see all those helpful people stopping to help and not all most going off the road to go around, to not help (it's hard to be sarcastic, and still make sense)

    I agree grewen, most folks kept on driving ..."Not my problem, let's not get involved".
    This attitude is common in developed areas where it seems logical that someone else will do something about the problem, some authority, emergency services,etc.
    This attitude is un-common in undeveloped areas where it seems logical that since no one else is around one's sense of duty is to do something.
    Population pressures tend to make us less helpful to our fellow man.

    Yep, probably never attended a Motorcycle safety course.... Bump Steer? Many non-schooled riders have no clue about this...
