    Since you brought it up .... I think it looks like a standard 40 ft bus. The jerky video timeline seems to show 2.5 secs to pass the bus. 11 mph is 16.1 fps x 2.5 = 40. Right about my guestimate. The...

    There is nothing worse than a cheap bike with cheap deraillers.

    All I see wrong with the van is the bumper is tilted down a bit. Not likely an upright hit from behind.
