Did it happen on the freeway or on surface streets? I don't lane share much on surface streets, MAYBE to get to the front of a long row of cars at a light, but that's it.Thats some great advice... but I still wont lane split. Ive already had one door come flying open. Never again.
Unless they're going 15mph, be careful with that, you can get ticketed for anything over 10 or 15mph.I do it pretty frequently to be honest. I don't like cars that drive 10 mph under the speed limit, specially when they are side by side. Also in my area it can get quite busy between 3PM-7PM from all the people getting home from work so if I want to go anywhere I have no choice unless I want to be in stop and go traffic.
Yeah, it helped Dawn...Two cagers today almost clipped me while I was lane splitting. They changed lane abruptly w/o signaling, and close too. I decided to ride with my high beem on to make myself more noticeable. On top of that, a fellow biker cut me off close cuz I wasn't lane splitting ast enough for him. My bullet cam should be here soon. I have semi-permanently attached to my track bike so I'm a bit lazy to reuse it for my street bike. It's $50 for a 420-line bullet cam on ebay, reusing the DVR recorder from my track bike. It should be somewhat of an insurance in case something happen. :scooter.
