Honestly I don't think it matters if the motorcycle is in the wrong or not. What matters is he would be the one most likely to be killed.. That being said you should do what you have to do to keep yourself SAFE even if that means going above the speed limit.

Thank you. That explains why I see nothing moving on my phone. Too bad phones such as a S3 can't play .GIFs

So, I jumped on the computer for the sole purpose to check out this .GIF, and holy cow. Avoiding the truck looked scary enough, and then you clear the truck, and get shot in the face with a biker with a passenger. I would of shit myself for sure. The driver was cool though to avoid them even though it looked like he damaged his ride, but saving lives is more important. However, he shouldn't of been speeding. I wonder what the rider thought to himself when he saw that missile of a vehicle fly past him.

Definitely not trolling. I disagree with pretty much every other post in this thread, simple as that.

I've stated my case and reasoning, numerous times. If you disagree, that is your choice. Doesn't mean anything in the end. I just like to share my thoughts .

Again, this is like saying a homeowner is partially responsible for being shot if a burglar breaks into his home and shoots him.

Some things are subject to opinion and others are not.
Really this isn't.

The riders only mistake was operating a vehicle in Russia.

The 10 mile an hour under rule is pretty common, here in Ontario, you can drive 80KM/H on a 100KM/H highway.

Now I know this wasn't in Canada, but if it were, the law and the insurance company would have deemed the driver of the car 100% at fault.

If the motorcycle had been doing 10 over and the driver 30 over would the motorcyclist been partially at fault for not speeding enough?

If...IF and only IF the motorcyclist was doing significantly under the speed limit to a non legal degree, then he's partially at fault.

If he's within legal limits of the speed limit then he's not.

Flow of traffic isn't "how fast I want to drive", it's the speed of the vehicles ahead of you.

I don't know what the laws are in Russia regarding driver fault and responsibility, but I can't see any situation other than the motorcyclist driving illegally slow (a truck passing him isn't an indication, unless like Ontario, all large trucks are governed, and even then, they are governed slightly above the speed limit, so they can still pass vehicles that are only traveling the speed limit).

Had he been hit, the motorcyclist would have been a victim of criminal negligence (again assuming US/Canada, this is Russia so who knows), and not in the "oh I'm a victim poor me" sense that we like to use, but a serious and legitimate victim.

Right of way means little if you're dead
