Yeah, the photos show the red bike in the correct lane. The line isn't visible in the first photo because it stops momentarily, but it is clearly visible in the second photo.

They are in this photo, but it looks like they were not before. Look at the angle of the red bike. I'm betting it was a little of both being right on, or over the line.

Like RD said..Red bike was in his lane. Other dude, who went flying, was out of his lane and at fault. From what I can see in the pics anyway. Dude on red bike got hit so quick, bars were yanked out of his hands before his arm could even react.

Is there an intersection there? What's with the break in the yellow line? That may be why you don't see it in the 2nd pic.

Look at his right arm, He's countersteering. The bar isn't there any more, but he's still trying.
