That was close glad he missed you. Love the move they pull after you hit the horn. They look up see you and still proceed to make their lane change. !

You're the second one to say this. Do people realize that the left lane is for passing? Just riding in the right lane is not the correct tactic to take. People will blindly merge over into the right lane also. I'll guarantee you if you just go around riding in the right lane all the time you are going to really people off.
I see people on group ride doing this, and I've watched cagers get really for blocking both or all the lanes across.

When I watched the vid I was thinking the same thing.
I always ride in the left side of my lane whenever possible for two reasons;
1. Visibility - It's easier to see out the left mirror than the right.
2. Traction - There's less oil and debris at the top of the crown of the road than at the bottom where everything flows down too.

Nice moves Striker!

You guys are right about the 'safety' of being on the left side your lane, but he was riding in a group- at least one other rider- his wife. SHE was riding staggered in the left portion of the lane behind him- witnessing the near death of her husband... sometimes the safest alternative is not always an option.

No, they don't. That's why I hate nearly every other driver on the road. I would be surprised how many actually know ANY driving rules/laws.

There were actually 4 of us headed home from the forest. He was in the left side of the lane (started out in right, but moved over after red SUV turned right)... but I don't think it really mattered in this case because baldy forgot to look. I wish I had a camera cuz those were some impressive moves by Striker.

I just can't imagine watching the whole thing... I've had cars come over on me, but I have been anticipating their moves and hit the horn as soon as they start to move... been pretty fortunate so far. I've not had to watch someone I love be overtaken, though. I'm sure you were wishing you were strapped and loaded right then.

Yea... had we not had other riders with us...I probably woulda followed that guy into the parking lot he was in such a hurry to get into. I know that is not a good idea, but sometimes I get soooo .

Agreed! I was 2 or 3 back from him when it happened and if it would of been a noob they would have been toast Good thing Striker was Alert even after a Long day of riding!

On my way home from the forest today on I45 I was about 70 yrds behind a pickup when a gust of wind sucked a 6ft ladder out of the bed on to the road. Luckily I had plenty of room to miss it.
I'm not sure where you're coming from to go to the forest. I've got a great route that avoids I45.

This one time me and my ex were on my bike and she pointed something out to me. When I looked over I accidentaly drifted into the other lane cutting this dude off. At the next light he took a bat to my bike but it was totally my fault for not being 100 percent alert at all times.



sounds stupid doesn't it?
