Imagine you're on the bike from this dashcam pov...just riding down the road as usual. What would be your escape route?

Slide under the truck after I jump off the bike in panic or fall off from grabbing the front brake.

I reckon...as soon as that oncoming van crosses the white line you need to attempt to abort into the left field, and get up that kerb by a sharp push on the left handlebar to get a sharp attack angle, I think I'd rather summersault into that field that hit that van. Any attempt at saving the bike is forgotten, in light of pure suvival instinct. If your tyre slides along that kerb your going under the van... so many maybes', still hindsight is a wonderful thing...

No time to react there. The only thing to do (in a car) is try and side-swipe the lorry. Yes you will still get mashed but by a vehicle of lesser mass. Get it wrong and the car smashes into the driver's door Shocked

Kobayashi Maru.

I reckon I would probably swerve violently into the left over the kerb and down that embankment. Probably get thrown off the bike and the bike still gets crushed but I'd rather be injured in the grassy field than dead as fuck under that lorry.
