Bummer for sure. I did something similar last month. Fortunately I came to a complete stop before tipping over.

Bike faired far better than I did. Mirror and bag, probably faring. Me, 7 broken/cracked ribs, rash and stitches. My fault for dropping my guard.
I probably need a couple of months to test my new Ion Air Pro in High Def for license numbers.

Ouch! Guess you didn't walk away after all.

Only takes a second for things to go bad wrong. Your video proves it. Sobering to all concerned.

Was your bike equipped with ABS? I hope you have a quick recovery and are able to get back out and ride again.

No ABS, wouldn't have happened if I had it. I won't have another bike without it. Probably be another month.
Thanks

Hope you are doing better Bob. I just watched the video and am confused on what happened. It looks like the Camry intentionally tapped the brakes to get you to back off some? Did you brake too hard and it locked up the rear wheel?

At an small intersection once, I was making a left hand turn and the car on my left started to go and I hit the brakes which put me on the ground. The car probably would not have hit me since he had edged out and then stopped but I still went down. I don't think that would happen today but who knows.

keyboard warrior ride analysis (so easy from my couch) , I saw that break check from the camry coming at 3:52 4:29 (safety buffer / riding style)

:32 speed limit sign says 40
2:19 speed limit now 45
3:11 speedometer shows 60
3:41 tailgating
4:29 im shaking my head.. not in California no lane splitting, not riding in a group dont need room for other bikes at the light (Camry is at this light seeing you, im sure shaking their fist ***** MC riders*)
5:29 - 5:35 -- I can already sense the camry aint to thrilled about your riding style, they are pacing your braking distance even though they have MUCH better braking
5:53 Camry now seeing you tailgating another vehicle
6:01 they pass, you zoom in behind (at 60 mph again)
6:07 brake check by Camry;
6:07:01 panic braking by MC (the right hand lane was still moving so an alternative was a moderate lane adjustment)


definitely some lessons to be gleemed from this video, thanks for sharing. also glad you were able to walk away from the incident.

Much of your analysis seems reasonable. But at 4:29, rider positions himself to the right of, but behind the car in front. Still in his own lane. This is correct technique, allowing you an escape route from someone behind you who won't stop in time, or just to avoid being caught between two cars in the event of a rear end crash up.
