Rounding a corner, the pair are suddenly confronted by a BMW driver, who's seen fit to simply stop in the middle of the road, presumably to take in the views.
Yup; that's the US.

One does need to ask why the bike and car were at the speed they were though. Somebody doing something more wrong than you doesn't make you right.

Dont worry your child or dog are not as fast as the bike, the stopping distance will be less.

Just goes to show, never assume the road ahead is clear, always be ready to stop
