Lane splitting ,may I just say that some ridders are "just an accident waiting to happen".I had one a few weeks ago while driving a small truck that made me think how dumb some ridders are.Light trucks get moved about in their lane ,by wind and they wander a bit .I was travelling along at about 55 mph( the speed limit) while being overtaken by another vechile on a divided Toll road . The motorcylist just blasted between us at about 80 mph plus , the other vechile was about 1/2 way past me. Result is the rider clipped my truck mirror and the car mirror, a second latter I get a stiff cross wind which moves me towards the car by about one foot . The idot continued to ride down the road and lane split unaware how close he came falling off and being run over by the following large trucks . This was in very light traffic , he just could not or did not want to time his overtaking moves,I wounder how long he will last ??
