Serious target fixation!

It looks like he slows down but fixates on the bikes, drifting toward the shoulder. Lucky no one wasn't more seriously injured.

True, but some should not ride.

I like how the rider puts his foot out just before making like a snowplow

It's going to hurt the douche bag's wallet if he doesn't have good insurance. That cyclist is gonna be hell sore today. I've been blind sided on my bicycle by both vehicle and animal and it's a violent event.

And this this one reason our insurance rates are high as hell. Good thing the bicyclist was wearing a helmet.

You can actually see the neurons fire and signal "rut roh" -- the head comes up, the arms stiffen.

He was not looking anywhere near far enough ahead.

Classic target fixation ... but what a f***ing tool! If the motorcyclist wasn't hurt in the crash, someone needs to take him on one side and give him a few good bitch slaps. I can't believe nobody is yelling at him in that clip - I would have been. He certainly ought to have his license taken away for a while (and not just his motorcycle endorsement either - he's a menace)
