Everyone knows that the Vette driver should have NEVER touched the front brake!!! Back brake only or you'll flip ass over teakettle, especially without a bell.

If I was the Vette guy I would be pissed. Looks like the rider just gave up on the turn. Had he stuck with it he might have snuck by the Vette guy.
The camera folks don't cause accidents.

Is he going to ride after this incident, or tell the missus, 'that's it, enough motorcycling for me'? I hope so for his sake, that was fairly dismal bit of riding, worn out saying 'accident looking for a place to happend' fits the bill here. He is ok i hope, he totaled the bike though

If photogs cause accidents, then we should pass a law banning them. On that line, we should also ban pretty girls from walking down the street.

Oh wait, isn't it the rider/driver's responsibility to pay attention to the road?

+

If YOU ride beyond YOUR limits to get a good photo, YOU eff'd up and caused the crash.
If the folks in the lay bys are shooting with rifles, THEY are causing the crashes.
That has already been banned.

If we're going to ban something, let's ban the people who want to ban more stuff.
