Very cool video! Motorcycle got run over after it crushed white car's trunk, and motorcyclist punched a hole in car's rear window... Nice smooth parking to the side of the road.

Garage
Interesting that he turned around when hearing the squeeling tires instead of moving to the side to get out of the way.
Was he attempting a wheely before getting hit?

First of all ooooouuch!

So look again . . . . . maybe room on the left to get out from the back of the white car? It happens fast! One rear view mirrior.

That is one of the positions I don't like!

He was thrown to a safer place but I bet he has injuries!

I don't think he was trying to wheelie but was just playing around blipping the throttle. If only he'd gassed it to the left instead of looking around. Both driving and riding I've had someone locking up behind me somewhere and moved up or to the side. I hope the rider wasn't badly hurt. Had a former co-worker whose husband died due to a crash like that.

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

That almost happened to me once, traffic came to a sudden stop and I knew it was a pretty bad situation. So I gave it gas and went for in between two cars and just about then, a car slams into the rear of the car that was in front of me!

Lane splitting should be legal...

Or, you know, get out of traffic. Seems like the right decision to me.
