The fellow sounded young, (as well as very Australian), and hasn’t learnt the most important rule of motorbike riding – you in comparison to the other traffic are very exposed and vulnerable, and you should always assume the cars are going to do something wrong, in this case if the car is inching out, or even not moving at the intersection, assume he’s going to move into your path, and that you are invisible to him. Back off on the accelerator, until you’re quite sure it’s going to be fine and normal. Any time you see a car sitting at or moving towards an intersection, especially a roundabout, be on extra alert guard, be aware of what’s around you and think how you can avoid things.
An analogy that only semi works but is useful in that it offends some people (feminists):
You are an attractive young
motorcyclist considering walking alone at night in a big, rather multicultural city, and you are not a pigheaded silly girl who can’t understand certain realities, and expects the world to bend to her will. You know there are many things around you, which are called cars , and they are bigger and stronger than you, in comparison you are small, weak and easily harmed by them. You can trust that the vast majority of them will do the right thing, but you never know, it can happen, one night there might be one who goes off the reservation and does the wrong thing, and like when a motorbike gets into an altercation with a car, you are going to lose girlfriend. Many, such, cases, six foot under well before their time.
As there are many young men dead or paralysed, because they assumed everyone would do the right thing. End sermon.
