Hey, midtown Atlanta! That's the corner of Peachtree and 11th - right here. It's normally very busy there, weird to see it so deserted.

He didn't even head check left.. it seems like he had plenty of time to pass on the left OR to brake. Indecision -> crash.

Passing on the right on a street that changed to two lane (one lane each direction). Why's anyone surprised about the crash?

From when he first borrowed the bike. Listen to his comment about his own riding style at 1:35

^^ Just watched 1:00-2:00. I wouldn't even loan him a mountain bike.

Yes, he had lots of time to avoid the crash, starting at 0:00.

However, a little respect back to him for uploading the crash vid to youtube. Maybe he learned something.

I hope you are right, but I rather doubt it. When you see the abundance of stupid posts on YouTube and Facebook, and then see them trying to excuse their stupidity, one wonders if they will learn anything at all.

That was one of the stupidest moves that I have seen in 4 decades of riding.

Some observations.

When a vehicle approaches you from a perpendicular, you should always anticipate it will pull out in front of you.

That said, the van driver appeared to do nothing wrong. Just assumed the bike was traveling at a normal speed for the residential roadway.

Chase, had two options that required no abnormal procedures.

He could,have slowed and braked to fall in behind the SUV. INSTEAD, HE SPED UP!

Due to his acceleration, he could have changed over the to left lane and would still have had to stay on the alert for the SUV lane changing into him.

Now, I will cut him some slack for the mere reason that he did post the video on his channel. This was important because I feel he, for better or worse, influences some impressionable riders with his channel.

I hope his viewers learned the lesson that was taught there.

Hell, it looks like he had enough time for normal, relaxed brakingp. From the video, he had about 3-4 seconds to stop. It's not clear exactly how fast he was going, but I'd estimate around 40 mph or so? How long does it take to haul a Panigale from 40 to 10? I'm betting it's nowhere near 3-4 seconds.

Dude wasn't paying attention or just doesn't know wtf he's doing as far as riding in traffic goes.

I agree that there is definitely no reason for emergency braking in that video. He could have easily and gently braked or kept his speed constant and moved to the left lane.

After watching too many crash videos on youtube I've noticed most crashes happen when passing on the right and or moving at a much higher speed than the other traffic.

Don't know why he did that, pretty stupid..

A more confident rider could have either stopped next to the van or made that gap. Still stupid, yes.

Worst rider I have ever viewed on video.. It was like he had his eyes closed until he was next to the van.

Has anyone seen, that there was a traffic light, that was green for the Biker?

Starting from that, if the Van was ignoring a Red light (wich he probably did do - i can not imagine both being green at the same time), in case of a lawsuit, the van might get to be the one "at fault" (at least, in austria that is what would definately happen) nevertheless what the rider did AFTER the van ran the red light. But again, that is obviously not Austria, so i do not know how it would been handled there.

Absolutely aside of that, my personal opinion: Stupid stupid biker! Sorry to be so rude, but he could have slow down easily to avoid any crash at all, he could have most probably overtake him on the other side (unless that side was occupied or he though the van might go for said side), but to go between the Van AND the pedestrian way (where trees and fancy black little steel fences are) is just plain stupidity. Thats at least my opinion!

Poor bike and poor bike owner... My condolences for the bike...
