From the other side, I was pulling out of a gas station intending to make a left onto a congested two lane street with a center turn lane. Finally there was a break in traffic, looked left, nothing, looked right, one car far enough away especially with a turn lane, looked left AND hit the gas at the same time. Holy crap, here was a Harley with two on board where 2 seconds ago there was nothing. Slammed the brakes, Harley swerved and continued.
Still can't believe I didn't see a big chromed-out hog with his hot babe on the back (who flipped me off). Scared the heck out of me, I should have looked left BEFORE hitting the gas one more time.
In any event, bicycles are even harder to see.
