I did that back when I did trackdays on my then-street cbr. Back before I realized Yamaha was better and got an all out trackbike in the form into an R6...

Question why were you changing lanes?
Sec. 551.103. OPERATION ON ROADWAY. (a) Except as provided by Subsection (b), a person operating a bicycle on a roadway who is moving slower than the other traffic on the roadway shall ride as near as practicable to the right curb or edge of the roadway.

you should always be in the right lane even if you have to turn left

I didn't get wet from rain, just the standing water. It was about 10:30-11:00PM

I ride against traffic so I can see what coming at me.

Another illegal rider! Probably don't have insurance either, huh? Yeah, yeah, I know it's a bicycle.

I havent had a car/truck with a manual transmission since 2005. To this day, I still throw my left foot to the floorboard everytime I start my automatic transmission car - my foot looking for the clutch pedal.

Albert has had bad luck in the past with vehicles coming up behind him. Had a bike that was riding a wheelie hit him from behind. I don't blame him for going towards traffic and seeing whats coming.
