I wasn't really going that fast. Everything looks faster on the Sony action cam because of the distortion. But yea, I try to split as safe as possible.
and they said i was bad on the highway
where is Badger on this one heh !?
nice buddy ... but be careful because splittin lanes like that will get you taken out
specially on the mc41 ... there is not too much punch in the motor to "get out of there"
you probably have a better chance on a cool gixxer or , now that the secret is out , a 600rr
kind'a reminded me of the black devil video............ but slower
you don't have to tell me .... i already knew thisI wasn't really going that fast. Everything looks faster on the Sony action cam because of the distortion. But yea, I try to split as safe as possible.
Thanks for the concern bro. The reason why we split is because in California, it's legal (more like permissible to do it) and half of, if not most, drivers know this. They see me in their sideview and move to the left. You'll notice that in my video. Every time they move to the left, I hit the gas and pass them. When the cars are at a standstill, I watch out for gaps where bad lane changers might try to pounce on.you don't have to tell me .... i already knew this
the GoPro made it look like i was going in warp speed
... but seriously , don't want to sound like a cool-guy
switching lane and hitting the brakes is just as fun , if not more fun because you can hit the gas again
all it takes is one dummy's wrong move and you are toast
and then they will say "he was splitting lanes and driving erratically"
is still a cool clip , don't get me wrong , but i was sweating a few time when it was un-nessesary to split through.... but then again is ME talking here
i try to make wheelies on my MC41.... that un-nessesary ... but at least it teaches me bike control ...and don't break the "other rules"
next vid ..i'd like to see you working that traffic , remind me of FL highways ... is dangerous but it keeps you on-point (if you make it)
again , i like the video ... just concern'd ........
....for the motorcycle
(just kidding brother)
BTW-know it feels good splitin'em ...... try it at 140 with 5 other bikes and "lights" behind you
(now that will rock-your-socks-off)
(just kidding , don't try that either)
CA traffic is very similar to FL traffic .... you guys went from 80 to 10 to 80 in like 2 seconds (someone must have been updating their status) (status reads: "being inconsiderate on I-10)Thanks for the concern bro. The reason why we split is because in California, it's legal (more like permissible to do it)
No problem. I'm always recording while riding now, so hopefully I can catch some interesting stuff. The 91 freeway isn't so bad on a bikeaaahhhh reminds me of my road home after work on the 91 here in OC.
they've remove the carpool lanes, so now we have a really wide inside lane, no cats eyes or slippery yellow lines.
i lane split everyday, standstill and moving, just take extra care when you do it with those white plastic bumps... while you are not riding over them, if you have to break/swerve then you're gonna have a hard landing.
nice camera angle though.. thanks for sharing
That never made sense to me.. The European cars cutting off bikes. They risk there nice cars being tampered with by a group of bikes that can easily get away after messing with there car. LolA very fine example of "lane sharing". Well done! I have been doing it for decades. I have been knocked off the bike on two occasions. Each time the car driver changed lanes into me. The driver says "Gee, I didn't see you".
The best safety device for splitting is a white helmet. Somewhere deep in the psyche that says "COP!" and they "see" you. The majority of butthead drivers that try to block you will be in German cars. The simply bad drivers used to be Volvo (safety-mobile) drivers. These days Prius drivers take the cake. I think they are hypnotized by the fancy dash.
Looks about right! How much was your camera?
I got the wifi model where you can use your smartphone as a viewfinder. It cost $268 on Amazon. But I don't find myself using the wifi function much. If you plan on getting one, just get the $200 non wifi model.Looks about right! How much was your camera?
I used to hate the 91but know it's not to bad
I was scared as first too. I didn't start lane "sharing" until after a week or two of riding. Just remember to anticipate the drivers actions and watch out for hazards that are bound to happen. You just need to be super aware when splitting.Nice video... I could watch that all day. Without debating the risk of lane sharing I don't know that I could do it. Looks fun but I'm too scared to try.
