personally I don't know how to go anywhere anymore without lane splitting
I personally have a hard time feeling sorry about all these poor cagers that are just terrified by these terrible bikers. By far, they put us under much more of a tremendous threat with their normal driving habits. How often do you hear of a cager being hurt by a motorcyclist? How often do you here of a motorcyclist being hit and killed by some dumb cager.

Hmm... Safety seems to be kinda a mute point when riding a bike right?? No matter how safe you are. You can be like me and obey the speed limits always use turn signals, keep a safe riding distance and someone not paying attn certainly could run right over you. A lot of people dont look before they change lanes.. so is the answer to not drive in the lanes next to a car?? Lane splitting I think would be no more dangerous then just riding a motorcycle in traffic would be..Lets face it, riding a motorcycle in houston traffic is NOT safe no matter how you look at it.

BTW challen is just a big teddy bear.... Just gotta rub his tummy.

im not talking about the wright brothers.
im talking about you saying youve changed lanes underneath a tractor trailer.
insert all the cool smiley faces you want but all trailers and open trailers, like the ones that carry Ibeams have a maximum ground clearance of 48"
maybe you were on a moped.
whatever makes you feel cool..
again it was a cool story bro.

I bet you'd find that some of these/those 'riders' drive cars just as badly/in-appropiately.
...and unless all you own/operate is your bike, then you're a cager too.

Now if we consider that video and some of the others from Dalls, then yea I think the drivers out there have a valid reason to be concerned/scared and I'm willing to bet within a year or so we're going to see some serious crackdowns and harrassment from police out that way because of the bullshit.

...of course, one has to consider the irony in that the operators of the car, do not stop and consider the protection provide by the vehicle and in fact the capability of that vehicle as a weapon in itself. Offensively and defensively.

So what if he didn't get his terminology correct. Close enough, he made his point.

no he is correct, that is the term, but he thinks I am saying ONLY those trucks. nope. MANY trailer trucks as well. not just the ibeam trucks.

just cause he cant doesnt mean its not possible. thats like me saying its not possible to endo a bike, cause I cant do a stoppie.

lol.. guess so dude. just my brother drives a 18wheeler and ive thought about trying it before.. and the mechanics of it seem impossible. my bike is around 3ft to the top of the gas tank, to the wind screen 3ft 10.. i duck as low down as possible. to the top of my lid its 4ft5in. bottom of his open trailer is 4ft. and there are 2 steal support beams under the trailer. that are 3 ft 6 from the ground. it would be impossible for me to go under. unless i lowsided through.. but i guess in 89' all trailers were different.

its not that trucks were different (that I know of) but my bike is considerably lower than other SECA II's. (and todays sportbike ) and I completely understand the disbeleif. allthough a full size bike, i sit lower than most scooters :P

clip ons rather than "standard handlbars" and cut down seat are both 26 inches from the ground.
.the tank is the tallest part on my bike, just under 36 inches.
.no bodywork, no windscreen.

so when you duck, and completley hang off the side, and put your head near the motor,(not on top of the tank) you got 1 foot (roughly) of clearance to play with, depending on the trailer height.

absolutely stupid? yes. but it is foolishly very possible.

So you're saying that you ride some place that has gridlock traffic and one lane full of I-beam hauling 18-wheelers that you can pass through whenever you want instead of riding in houston where regular 18-wheelers haul big trailers.

Oh.

My bad.
