Hey, I'm truly glad your okay and nobody got idiot.  That's what I would have said directly to you if I had been riding with you.  Sorry, no punches pulled here.  At least you admit you learned something and will be a little smarter and pay attention next time.  

Again, glad it came out okay.  Go ahead, flame away.

kinda sounds like this happened:

although in the video it looks like the front guy was going to turn left when the guy in back continues to stunt.
Looks like the guy in the back did an endo too! Watch right before they collide!


Chalk it down as a learning experience. I had that happen down at Bike Week in Daytona back in 2000 on a HD Heritage. We all took off from a light and my buddy in front of me was on a duce and pulled way out in front. Didn't realize he had slowed down and locked the rear up and slid past him. I have no idea how I missed him to this day! Scared the crapola out of me!

At least you're does go fast and acceleration is great fun, but all of us sometimes forget that it takes some space and time to slow back down...just glad you didn't go down...

No one was harmed in the making of this lesson

That is the primary reason I usally try to stay in the rear guard when riding with more than one person. It is really hard to judge or predict when someone is going to slow down. You guys should always ride staggered at the least.
Glad your ok.
