British guy viral bandit crash clip.

He's getting around on facebook, and getting quite the pasting from most due to his seemingly bad braking technique. What do people think?

How in the hell did he not see that in time to stop? I don't have sound on my PC here to hear what is going on, but I could see from the beginning of the clip that there was stopped traffic up there....

as i see it, he did not intend to stop at all. my quess is that he was about to pass in between the trucks which didn't work.
a bit slower approach would have prevented it all.

Nothing more dangerous, than a man with a camera on a glory quest.

It looks like the first time he said "shit" there was still plenty of distance to stop.

I'd guess at least 70m to the back of the truck from when he first started swearing.
It also looks like he could have crossed left behind the Fiesta and run down the hard shoulder.
Just a dick going too fast for conditions.

That is totally baffling. It actually sounds like the guy has ABS. Note the pulsing squeals from his tires. What is baffling is that it doesn't seem like he hits the brakes until well after he has identified the problem. I think he is into his third "shit" before applying any brakes.

I am also not sure he was out of room between the trucks. It certainly was tight but it appears as if he swerved to the left while between the trucks. Perhaps target fixation?

No matter, he earns the distinction of being a complete idiot.

Glad he made it out with his life and limb intact.
I try to learn something from every crash video I watch.
The Lesson behind this video, don't ride like shit.

I thought this also. Perhaps he lost his nerve, then decided to brake.

Jeebus! Seriously stupid. If he originally planned to go between the trucks, wonder why the trucks were stopped? Even if the goal was to blaze through that gap, what was in front of them that caused them to stop in the road?

Looks like heavy traffic stopped the trucks. They my of been time to brake and go left . Or just slow to a stops.

Think the bike my of hit a bump and went left lucky he never go run over.

Why would the idjit even post that. These days if you make an idiot move you should consider yourself lucky if someone else doesn't catch it on camera and then posts it.
But to post your own vid of you proving the elevator doesn't go to the top .....
