This is real simple. Everyone rides their own ride. How much judgement, common sense, and skill YOU bring to the ride is YOUR issue. Not the issue of another rider not affecting you, some car you are fixating on, or a camera taking your picture that distracts you. YOU are distracted. The camera is incapable of distracting you.

Own it. Good or bad.

Sucks the dude is hurt, but he probably lacks skill, training, and judgement necessary to ride safely, as so many sadly do. This is evidenced not by snobbery, but by what I see other riders doing when I am driving and riding 100 miles round trip to work every day.

Cut and paste from easttnriders thread,

"A messege from his wife, Mel

Jeff is now stable but still in critical condition. Injuries he has sustained include fractured skull at frontal lobe and orbital area, missing four front teeth with torn lip, facial reconstruction in the future, broken C1,C2,T3,L2,L3 and L4, broken ribs on both sides and collapsed lungs with lacerations to liver and kidney. Thank you for all your love, prayers, and support."

No images.

They've got restrictions, their webmaster's probably had problems with webbots so no linked images.

Here is the thread so we can read up ourselves:

WOW. he could have stayed in the turn, but that was a perfect execution of the MSF stopping in the turn technique.

Even me as a Motorcycling n00b can say: Bad case of Target Fixation. Could've possibly evaded the crash if he continued to turn.

Seemed like a damn hard hit though...did you see that front wheel fly?

From happy day to bad day in seconds! Ouch interesting how he fixated on the car and not the road. The bike went from turning/leaning to straight on. Hope both guys r ok

Wow!!

WOW!!! Any word on his condition??

Now the how? Not trying monday morning quarterback this guy, but as the sign on the tree of shame sez, learn from his pain.

My theory

1. Hamming for the camera, he's not looking where he is going and how fast he is getting there, totally not set up for the curve.

1a. Sez/thinks, Oh SHIT!!! Target Fixation at 1000% strength!

2. Starts to take the curve and may have leaned so much he drags a peg and looses traction? Maybe? Looking at the Vette!

3 Manages to save it from that peg drag skid, but in doing so has to straighten up and go straight. Looking at the Vette!

4. Now its just a matter of how fast he can brake and scrub speed and maybe at the last second steer and avoid the Vette. Plus how well is the Vette driver paying attention and what will he do? Looking at the Vette.

5. Looks like the brakes are not on until he is well over halfway across the lane and if he is obeying the 30 mph speed limit (right!) on the Dragon. Give the Vette driver credit for going off road, The only shoulder there is the lead in to the pull off where Killboy is standing. Sometimes there are other vehicles there beside Kboy and his pop up. Looking at the Vette.

Flying over the Vette.

Other observations?

I really want this to be a learning crash not a pile.

I would bet you didn't read the last 15 posts or looked at any of the images/videos.

Well, except for that little detail of running into oncoming traffic. Or did I miss that lesson when I took the training many years ago?
