He was unlucky the car pulled out, but he kept his nerve and swerved around it when others would have frozen and smashed straight into it, or made a futile grab for the brakes (and still smashed into it).

100% skill!

Pure skill , even though he was doing excessive speed , another classic example of a car driver driving straight out infront of a biker , Simple solution get a louder exhaust !@

He has skills for sure but the lucky part is that there was no oncoming car in the other lane. That would have given him nowhere to go and have ended badly. :S

driving that speed in rural road is just first degree stupid, in my opinion he's lucky this time; given time nature will take its course and take him out

@4: louder exhaust isn't enough, some people listens to music inside their cars at a very high volume. Even without noise inside, we are so polluted by motor noises everywhere that hearing a motorbike from far away isn't took in account.
The only solution is to calm down, make a real sport to express the desire of speed, risk and adrenalin somewhere else, without risking to kill somebody on the road.
The road is a public space to be shared with many kind of users.

If he was smart he would expected that the driver couldnt have enough time to see him because of his speed.
Solution is to know where you are driving (And I´m pretty sure he knows this street), and lower your speed at such an area to give the car driver time to see you.
But he is still a moron to do that at an open road.

I wouldn't care if such idiots would die on their bikes, but the bad thing is they take someone with them usually... I am all for cleaning the gene pool from complete idiots like such bikers.

Well you guys cant really blame the car driver, i mean, you look left-right-left, you go and suddenly a bike going 200kmh comes your way. Anyways, pure skill by the bike rider.

@12: Cleaning the gene pool is a bad idea, especially because taking useless risks is a very common mistake for the young males. We do *NEED* to take risks to feel alive. But I think it's better when you choose the right place to do it.

#4, "another classic example of a car driver driving straight out infront of a biker"

A biker who probably would have been seen if he had been moving at a normal highway speed.

He's a goddamn idiot for risking other people's lives because of his need of a "thrill". If you want to risk your life, fine, do it on a closed space. Do not risk the lives of others! That car that drove out could very well have had an entire family in it. What would happen if he crashed into the side of the car? Goddamn idiot!

There is skill in being able to react quickly - but pure stupidity in putting him/her self into the position where they needed to react like that. Soon or later they will exceed their skill level and the world has another organ donor
