Motorcycle Vloggers

We've got to be on the lookout for vehicles where drivers are talking/texting and oblivious to us, but I wonder if the moto vloggers are almost as bad sometimes considering there have been several that have crashed while chatting away about their view about whatever the flavor of the day is.......

I feel terrible for the bike who got a idiot for a rider.

Heh, bet he had fun explaining that to his Insurance company:

"Hi Flo, Yeah, I was stupid. Oh, you already saw it on YouTube?"

I don't get it, the camera is attached to his helmet and is showing what he is looking at. We see the trucks far enough away there is plenty of time to brake.

In his comments he says he panicked and locked the rear up. He suggests at this point he more or less just slid into the trucks with his back end going sideways.

I'm not saying he didn't screw up or didn't have options, but once he locked that rear up they became more limited.

Then you'll love this guy. He's so busy squirting people with a water gun and throwing change he finally taps the rear of a car. You can go to 3:30 of the video.
