> his car, over compensated, and lost control.

Yes exactly, which is when the motorcyclist looked in his mirror and thought to himself "he got what he deserved" as he rode off into the sunset. It's too bad that the drivers loss of control caused injuries to someone who was not involved to begin with. It's a stupid thing to do, "fighting" in traffic but as I see it the blame for the collateral damage is clearly on the driver of the car and he shouldn't have tried to share lanes with the motorcyclist in the first place. This is why I always drive smack in the middle of my lane like I don't give a fuck. Unless I make a conscious, courteous decision not to, but then at least I know what's coming.

> Knock a motorcyclist over at highway speeds? That's tantamount to attempted murder
> using your car as a deadly weapon, basically.

Oh these "murder attempts" happen to me all the time. It's the worst when it rains, Brazilians really lose their head when it rains. One time I wired up a really loud car horn (unfortunately it shorted out during the rain season the same year) and that just proved to me that I was invisible to them. It was a joy while it lasted to see cars literally jump out of the way as i honked the horn, and then see the look on their faces when it's a 100cc Honda Pop. Otherwise they just don't see you, or they don't care. I don't know which it is but all my 9 lives are spent for sure by now and I'm not even a cat like you.

Yes, a hole of the ass variety lol. An inconsiderate one

I've been in accidents before but ironically what finally got me was oil on the road. Lost control, let go of the bike as it changed lanes by itself in a rain of sparks, broke my left elbow in 300 pieces and spent three weeks in public hospital constantly getting bumped to the end of the surgery queue because of favela kids playing with guns.
