That was phucken beautiful! It was momentarily airborne in its roll, and the other rider avoided it on the shoulder. Good video coverage!

I read that the passenger in the car (driver's girlfriend) pulled the E-Brake to stop him from racing with the bikes. You can see in the video that the rear wheels lock-up and the car begins to loose control. OOPS.........

I've heard the GF story and that there was no passenger. Not sure I can rely on the internet for information anymore

Either way, that could have been bad, nicely captured though.

Look carefully & you will see the front wheels also "lock up"

Yup. For whatever reason, you there is no smoke off those, but you can see the front end dive causing the rear to lighten and start fishtailing.
As to a passenger, it looked to me like there was someone facing backward in the back seat. Stopping the frames, I only saw the driver in the front.
In any event, it's almost always the riders who get the short end of the stick in these situations. Glad to see the law of probability finally catch up with a cager.

Think this is the original: LiveLeak.com - MEXICAN FAST AND FURIOUS

Says driver was drunk (shrug). I've had to deal with drunk drivers in a car, I'm worried about running across one on a bike.

I've an Audi which has an electronic e-brake which will put it into max braking on all 4 wheels. It also engages the parking brake via an electric motor which tightens the parking brake cable. That car in the video may have something similar. A drunk or impaired driver could easily lose control under max emergency braking.
