A Willing Suspension of Disbelief

So I'm watching Terminator 2 and I now realize that the toughest concept to accept isn't robots from the future or Skynet-induced nuclear conflagration.

The one thing I simply cannot wrap my mind around is the idea that drivers would slam on brakes, swerve, or otherwise even notice when a guy on a big motorcycle comes shooting out of a side street at unawares. I've had people pull out in front of me while I'm staring them in the Effing face for ten seconds. Someone in a car actually spinning out rather than ride right into a bike?

In my leathered, behelmeted, and kevlar-inserted dreams.
