[QUOTE=Jamin466;2126301]I have a coupe times, but I put my signal on and them waved afterwards. That way, no one got mad, and they all smiled and waved back.

Agreed. I do the same thing all the time. I don't get why it's such a big deal at all.

When between two cars this is less likely to happen. I've seen a fellow rider rear ended in such a way however he wasn't so lucky. I always prefer to have a stopped car behind me at red lights. I'm not saying its smart to split lanes because there are a lot of drivers out there who don't look for us and sometimes look to put motorcyclist in harms way.

However you ride, just be aware and be safe. You never know if the ride could be your last.

+1 good point, this is one the reasons why i always stay in gear and flash my brakes when coming to a stop...I even wait until the car behind me stops before i relax...we're literally targets out there

Indeed. I tend to try to avoid traffic. I will take the long way to work to avoid traffic...and the corners may have a little to do with it too lol. But I bought a tail light that flashes 3 times just for that reason.

Thank you, I think so too! If I make a kind gesture, people tend to not be so bothered by maneuvers like this.

And Sneakerhead, your comment applies to yourself as well if you are wanting another rider to be hit for obeying the traffic laws. If someone were to get hit it shouldn't be the one following the rules.


I don't want a decent person to get hit. I hate people that are stupid and the world would be a better place without that type of thinking. I was also being sarcastic about being a perfect rider. He said he does stupid stuff also, other than post ignorance on 1000RR.net, but on his bike.

I am not saying I'm sane, or in the right but here's the intersection on the map:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=6800+...94588&t=m&z=16

so as you can see, one lane onto eastbound 580 is entrance only, and the nexrt lane to the left is a entrance only westbound 580, heading toward tassajara.

if you use street view, you'll see there are solid white lines, filled with diagonal lines denoting an island, which is what I rode straight thru and merged into the lane I was wanting to be in. I was actually lanesplitting to the front but the light turned green too early, and the right lane was open, so that's how I ended up in the incorrect lane... not scary dangerous but yes, still stupid, and hence why I only did it once.

I usually only lanesplit to the front of a stop light if the following variables line up:

1) enough room for me (no surburbans hogging the white line)
2) many cars lined up
3) either I feel like it and/or am in a hurry
