    This video has nothing similar to what happened to me.
    This video is Two Guys riding too close to a fog line with no shoulder for the skill level they possessed.
    The second guy was even more unskilled in that he looked to his rear while still moving when on or adjacent to that fog line.

    I'm just teasing

    I dropped my roadking in the yard when I first got it. Was trying to do a u-turn in the tall grass, was in full lean and hit a depression I didn't see

    If you didn't drive off a cliff did you do this?

    came close me self once while sitting on the bike and trying to check my rear stop light by looking over my right shoulder.All the weight went to the left and there we stayed for which seemed like forever both determined to go our different ways.I won the battle but boy did i have to fight for it.

    Easy to happen, did something similar following another rider into a circle, he slowed, looked left, saw opening and started accelerating. I looked left, saw opening and started accelerating. When I looked forward he had changed his mind and stopped.
    I was lucky to be on a different line and cruised pass him, but it was close. Looking back if I was not trying to stay with the group probably would have stopped and waited for next break in traffic.
    Hopefully you and the other rider did not get hurt.

    Trying to stay with the group is a bad thing. I don't always take the time to survey my situation, especially at intersections. I try and ride at the back of the pack now. That way I don't feel pressed to move forward and not hold things up.
