Well, not really, I don't.
The videos here are a mere fraction of I experience in my rides, and as you can see most of them aren't really close calls. I've been filming every second of my rides since April and there aren't that many videos on my channel, and taken into account that I ride pretty much every day...

Lane splitting is not the same thing as an overtake maneuver. I don't know how things are done where you live, but here it's mandatory to stop for pedestrians to cross in the crosswalk. When I saw the pedestrian I was already finishing the overtaking maneuver, and I stopped, Like I was supposed to do.

I'm not saying that I am the safest rider out there, on the contrary, I know that some times I take unnecessary risks, and my crash is proof of it.

I know you guys (Americans) have a very different mentality when it comes to driving, I guess it's just cultural differences. Here we have a way looser leech from the police, compared to you guys. It's not an excuse to drive around recklessly, I know, but come on... It's not like I'm going around lane splitting and blowing red lights at 200 mph...

Watched your videos, thank you!

What a nightmare those two laned roundabouts are......

Keep riding like you're invisible bud!

Amen!

Amen to that! As cyclists we are responsible for our own safety. We must ride defensively and give ourselves an out for all situations.

We have to SLOW DOWN in the city. Leave plenty of time to react.
Cagers don't see us. Because one second, nobody is there. The next second here we come buzzing down the road zipping around cars and whizzing around corners.

Think about it. We are partially to blame. Cagers are stupid, and have slow reaction times.
We do not. So it is up to US to avoid THEM.

Patience

Patience, especially for motorcyclists, is a virtue and will help to keep you alive.
