Why? I don't think that was a passing lane. Probably saw the car but would not expect a bike to be there.

Yes, beat the person who opened the door, even though the rider was lane splitting. Makes perfect sense.

Its not like they were in a parking lot. No designated parking lines marked so they were parking in a designated traffic lane. Would have to look up the rules on this. Still If I park on the street I look before I open my door you never know what is coming that will take you and your door off.

Lots of streets allow parking during certain times so rider is at fault IMO. Furthermore based on the video we don't know if he beat the heck out of the guy or not.

Do you ever find a rider not guilty? How could you possibly watch that and not blame the rider. Seriously
Have to agree with RacerX on this one.

I can usually find a degree of guilt in almost any situation .. I dont believe in black and white .. we live in a gray area world. I was poking the bear because its fun .. racerX always finds the rider guilty so I was just giving him .

Again there you go again thinking you know me and what I think. Again you failed to answer a question I threw out there and tried to spin it with "oh you are just a new rider you will soon learn".

Well yes I am a new rider .. its posted on my little spot of info so lets get that out of the way and we dont have to point that out every time you think I am missing the point on something.

Again I still would have socked the (women excluded would have given a good rash of verbal abuse) for failing to check before they opened the door. Just because this may be an approved parking area on a busy street doesnt exclude you from being responsible for checking your surroundings before stepping out. Maybe the rider should have stayed in the flow of traffic .. see I am not oblivious to the factors that present here. Just because lane splitting in Texas is not legal doesnt mean it is not in other places. If this had a been a vehicle a little larger and they opened the door into oncoming traffic in the other lane I guess it would be the cars fault in moving traffic.. no the driver getting out need to fucken look before opening the door.

IMO in the things I have seen you respond to .. you pick the person with the worst outcome and place the blame on them while ignoring or failing to acknowledge the stupidity of the other party.

Notice the other car saw the door and swerved yet the rider couldn't clear that and took out 2 cars. He was going way to fast for splitting with parked cars. All the rider. He thought "parked cars, no danger"...nope. If there is a car, there is danger.

FYI. Lane splitting is legal and the norm in all countries except the US, excluding Cali.

If a car opened it's door into oncoming traffic while in a lane of travel... That would be talented.

Other car swerved .. it never moved stayed on the same line of movement until it struck the bike/was struck by the bike. I watched it like 10 times in a row just now. And for the first time I did hear him hit the throttle right before the guy opened the door .. so yeah dumb rider. I still have the same attitude towards the who opened the door though. You can see the nonchalant push of the door.

As far as opening the door into oncoming traffic .. yeah it can be done .. if the lanes were smaller or car is bigger you can feasibly open your door into the other lane.
