Biker had nearly five seconds to react to those brake lights they were solid and clear.
The snowbirds were going to exit to the right and do not know how to drive, their licenses should be revoked. You simply don't stop on a highway like that, unless you're the equivalent of a crack smoking degenerate deserving of death. If the stopped driver had died, I would forgive them.
Biker was traveling 30-40 mph faster than the flow of traffic. Twenty mph over gives a more reasonable chance, especially in rainy/wet conditions. Biker has to make that cut between the cars, plenty of room.
The water on the windshield of the car came from the rider and bike's impact.
Destiny though, if the rider had made the cut, the snowbirds would have turned right in front of them and of course an inevitable T-bone. The car in the far lane wouldn't hit them as their speed allowed control and a safe distance to stop.
The rider probably got hurt.
