two lane splitting punks on 45s yesterday

If your on here, and I hope you are, I am the guy in the black truck on 45 south yesterday.
I said you were a dumbass because if I wasnt aware of your presence when yall slid on in, I could have smashed the out of you guys. I had my blinker on, I had the slot, I was on the way over and I GAVE up the slot for your two dumbasses. Your lucky your not another moto wreck story.
freaking dumbasses, your part of the reason society is downing sportbikes

Something similar happened to me a while back on Hwy290. I was in the far left lane. I had my blinker on, looked over the shoulder, moved over into the middle lane in front of another car, looked again, moved further over (wanting to take West Rd exit) and all of a sudden, I hear this horn and see a bike to my right passing me at a pretty good speed. He continued on Hwy290 and at a nice clip.

That guy was lucky that I had the sense to swerve back even though that could've easily gotten me in trouble.

Watch traffic, my intentions were clear as I had already moved from one lane into the other and sorry dude, but if a cage shows a blinker, you better not decide to make a pass.

Most of the folks here are fairly minded and I don't think that it is anyone on here. A Person can learn a lot just to chat on here.

Actually, a lot of folks just lurk without being signed on. I think there are more folks out there browsing MH than we think.

I agree from a safety standpoint with you and he should have taken a guess at what you meant to do and played it safer-when I ride in traffic I don't assume much. In his defense as you change lanes you should also be aware of the speed of traffic in the lane you are changing into, regardless of his speed in relation to the posted limit, unless of course he was weaving and also moved into that lane in which case there is almost no way you can have no he was coming.

Sorry you got hit with part of my fast lane speech.

and you are right mentioning that. I do recall though that I did look into the rearview mirror before even changing lanes to get a good idea of traffic in general which was fairly light at that time. I never saw the bike and as you probably know, at least for me, there are two things that stick out to me fairly well in traffic: bikes and cops.

About the speed, I was travelling pretty fast myself in the far left lane (much faster than overall traffic) but slowed down once I moved over one lane. If he was going as fast than me, I never saw him next to me to begin with.

Point is, when we drive in a cage, at least I try to be considerate of bikes and riding a bike has already made me a much better driver but sometimes we see the danger other riders get themselves into. Just try to avoid it.

Not to mention he passed on the right...

Of course, from my experience around here, lane usage rules and laws are pretty much ignored.

I believe my favorites are the ones that run in the far left lane till just before their exit (knowing they are getting off, well ahead of time); and then cut a right across 2 or 3 lanes to exit, causing everyone else to check up and accordion to avoid them. That saves them a good couple seconds, don't it?

i havent had any of those experiences. at the contrary, everytime im driving my car i hear a bike comming, i see them way before they get close to me

good thing i always have time to give them space to move, but honestly. i always give em chance to change lanes and they even wave back

i hope i never find one of those squids lol

If im moving at a "good clip" in traffic, im always looking for blinkers and going the other way, or ill wait behind them till they move. But I will admit i have split a lane or two, but just do it as safe as possible.

I know what you mean, Scooter,
I was on 45 N just got into the lane fro the Beltway West when I saw a bike coming up fast ( I was doing about 75 )
The passes me on the ramp in the emergency lane and takes the curve at about 80-90 mph and passes 4 more cars on the curve of the ramp in the emergency lane and I am thinking this guy is going to hit some dirt or trash and crash his bike. I guess that was a little too much for him too cause he backed off the throttle at the end of the ramp where it connects to the beltway and lined up behind the slower traffic. But he must hve caught his breath at the light cause he started lane splitting through trffic and left everyone at the light. Idiot! Riding by the seat of your pants is fun ( on the track and not on the freeway)
