    What's even more impressive is the bike carried on and looks like it merged successfully. You can see it until about the 40-second mark. :biggrin_2559:

    It's been said, that as it disappeared over the horizon you could hear... “Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”

    Kinda like a horse after it throws the rider and heads for the barn.
    Poor skills period.
    55 mph ramp and truck cam shows 30 mph so maybe he was doing 45?

    Minor correction; the sortie speed is actually 55 km/h (~35 mph)... it's Montreal, eh.

    So he was going faster than the speed limit, but you're right, poor skills and target fixation. That was easily navigable at his speed.
     
    Dennixx Thanks this.
