Why does this infuriate some people so much?
It's peoples heads it's like queue jumping
they're trying to get to their destination - real ' fast and they got THEIR spot in traffic>*gets filtered by passing bike*>huh??? WHAT?? WHY ISHE ALLOWED TO DO THAT REEEEEEEEEfiltering makes sense obviously but some people got big heckin egos
>>24719668>>24719671 But in reality, if 2 cars drive in the middle of their lane the bike could be invisible and they wouldnt notice it, he will continue to filter and you get "your" spot back.Also, they dont have an AC so depending on the weather its literally dangerous for them to be stuck in traffic.
>>24719683Why should he get a special lane?
>>24719686Why not? Cyclists do. At least he has insurance.
>>24719693Nice try but I drive in cycle lanes
>>24719710And I don't have (((insurance)))
>>24719661It's no different than driving on the shoulder to pass other cars. You dont have a license to drive everywhere you fit. You aren't allowed to drive in the line between lanes. You are going hit a car making a lane change or someone exiting a vehicle in a traffic jam.
>>24719661Often when the bike fags try that I will aggressively box them in against the other car just as they try to pass. Each time they have to panic break and one time a guy nearly lost control of the bike. Its fucking hilarious
>>24720104Its legal where I live
car drivers are super insecure, see bicycle vs car threads on this board, total shitshow
>>24719686Why do you act like a crab in a bucket?>if I can't jump ahead neither can he even if he's currently boiling in his suit
>>24719661ikr, I see nothing wrong with it especially since motorcycles almost always will never hold back traffic when the light turns green, they just leave all the cars behind & go on their way.
>>24719661Becuse Americans are fucking mentally ill I've almost been ran off the road for going around a traffic jam on the shoulder, its common place in Europe and you can park on sidewalks too in alot of places
When I'm driving, I expect to have control of the lane that I'm in from edge to edge. That's why there are lane markings.
>>24720143Lower your expectations, sperg. Do you block emergency vehicles, too?
>>24719661crab nigga mentality
>>24720156I have nothing against splitting, but that's cringe bro
>>24719661dunno, not my problem
>>24720236Actually it is your problem because it's your responsibility to check for clearance before opening your door into traffic lanes.
>>24720236I mean it would be if you actually did it, yes.
>>24720254Yeah, but i am eating and talking on the phone, sooo, yikes.
>>24720257Thanks for buying me a new bike and gear
>>24720266If you survive, thats a big brain splattered under a semi tire if.
>>24720266Good luck collecting when your dumbass is crippled on the ground and I take your shitty go pro and phone and throw it in the river kek
>>24720236>>24720295>>24720109>Often when the bike fags try that I will aggressively box them in against the other car just as they try to passantisocial behaviorlemme guess, youre a superior white male, eh?
>>24720109Based. Operate motor vehicles inside the lanes or stay off the road.
>>24719661because they always go too fucking quick when they do it, like too quick to make a save if someone had to open a door, change lanes, or stick their hand out to ash a cig. eventually they will have to merge back into a lane of traffic to turn at a light so yeah they are also cue jumping.
>>24720378>so yeah they are also cue jumpingcrab
>>24720392i could also do illegal shit like the bikers. drive my car down the breakdown lane and jump the cue or use a freeway onramp/leftturn lane to cut ahead of street traffic but im not a fucking nigger.
>>24720392>crabbetter than ending up as a shit stain on the road
>>24719686Filtering means less traffic for you. 5% of commuters switching to 2 wheels and filtering. Would net a 20% traffic reduction.
>>24720410That shit only works when there's a few of you otherwise when there'd be a line of motorcycles waiting at the light in-between the lanes.
>>24720417*otherwise there'd be
>>24720417Still works because the bikes take off faster.I rode a motorcycle in Japan and every one filters.
I don't know, I always try to make more space for bikers whenever I can, they don't slow anyone down. On the other hand, cyclists that get to the front of the intersection and then everyone has to pass them can fuck right off.
>>24720448That's a missing bike lane problem, not a cyclist problem.
>>24719661I'm okay if they just move between cars that are stuckBut if some asshole on a scooter drives in front of me while I'm stopped at a light and just moves in front of me, I might just fucking get a manslaughter charge
>>24720156An asshole hit my mirror doing this shit. I don't see why this is allowed.
>>24720104>You dont have a license to drive everywhere you fit. You aren't allowed to drive in the line between lanes.1. Stop trying to police others 2. Yes I am. It's actually illegal for you to try to block me.
>>24719661Filtering only infuriates bitter faggots who want everyone to suffer as much as they do. Take note, though, that filtering and splitting are different things, in many places legally too. Filtering refers to driving between lanes in standing traffic, where people move slowly and are aware and alert because they have an inscentive to, if they snooze they lose. Standing in a traffic jam is arguably more dangerous for a biker than filtering, at very least for his health since he has to breathe all the exhaust fumes completely unfiltered, and on a stop light it's much better for the bike to be in front of the pack so it can pull away and have less cars around. Splitting, meanwhile, is doing so at speed where people often just cruise and don't pay much attention. That's an easy way to become extremely dead.
>>24720156This is not splitting, this is filtering.
>>24720501>That's an easy way to become extremely dead.8 years of splitting and never had a problem. Do it safely and you'll be fine.
Fuck cyclists Fuck cagesI always filter on my shitbike and if there's a bike lane I'll take that instead
>>24720510It is impossible to do completely safely because you can't rely on other people not being idiots. The first rule of biking is to interact with cagers as little as possible, that's the real thing that separates good riders from eternal squids. Filtering helps with that, you get to pass by them while they aren't doing anything anyway and thus pose little threat to your existence. Splitting does the exact opposite, you deliberately interact with those active drivers.
>>24720417They pile 15 of them on the starting line ut works better
Nice to see how livid the imagination the cagers have, but lets return to reality.I will filterI will splitYou will pay for my bike and gear when you fuck something up
>>24720475I hit some asshole's mirror doing this shit.
See the majority of bikers are fucking fags, risking scratching up people's cars and shit filtering. Me, I'm more courteous than that. As a straight man I know the only safe way to filter that doesn't fuck with the car drivers is getting on the sidewalk in order to get up to the front.Look drivers I'm sorry but here in TX is really is hot. My bike is old and high displacement, too, so it overheats if I'm sitting behind you guys and accelerating slowly when the light turns green.Also don't forget being behind you is absolutely unsafe for me. I can't count the amount of times I've been brake checked by a careless or phone-using driver, or almost sandwiched at a red because I couldn't get to the sidewalk and was forced to stay back, staring at my temp gauge and praying I don't break 230.Regardless I'm just praying you guys cut a straight white man a break. Fuck all the losers who can't do it the proper way, I say.
>>24719661You're too close and make loud noises in my ear. I used to always let bikes pass until some asshole revved his engine for no reason. You don't have to make a lot of noise for safety, just be safe and don't pass too fast like an idiot. You do not have to lane split, I see people still doing it while traffic is going like 70mph like they have a mental problem thinking they HAVE to get ahead.
>>24719661Because the idea of a superior being getting ahead of them makes the cagers rage.
>>24719661In europe everyone does it and cars know it and nobody gives a fuck anyway. Dont know why americans are so mental about filtering.
>>24721015No gaymu your bike it not going to over head unless your radiator fan is broken.
>>24720402Fuckin top zozzle!
>>24721074>until some asshole revved his engine for no reason.he was probably downshifting, and you're just a fucking retard.
>>24720939When your splitting, when you filter, it's YOU who fucks your bike up. Traffic laws are a thing.
>>24720458>missing bike laneSuck my nards lycranigger and buy a car.
>>24721564>it's YOU who fucks your bike up.nah, get the fuck out of the way and nothing will happen. Actually just don't deliberately get in the way and nothing will happen.
>>24721098They won't zipper either
>>24719661I don't care as long as they do so carefully. Additionally the shoulders should also be open to bikes as long as they stay under 25 when using them.
>>24720109Lmao youd better hope I'm KO'd or dead because I will beat the everloving shit out of you otherwise
>>24720475Lesson learnt mate, you were too close to the centre line. Next time move over a bit and all will be right in the world
>>24720475If you were driving a prius in socal on the 405... Sorry man. Didn't mean to explode that mirror, and also did the nigger thing and bailed since it was stop and go.I have hit mirrors with my mirrors. Just folds mine in.
>>24719661I'm okay with it, I'll even scoot over and give you fellers a little more room if I see you in time.
>>24721683thanks palI'll give you a friendly thank you wave if you do this.
Califag hereI don't really split lanes anymore, way too dangerous especially after all the NPCs got the coof clot shot which makes them drive retarded. I still do filter if needed though. But most of the time I'll wait in line with the rest of the cars because I'm never in a rush to get anywhere.
>>24721015based fellow garland bro
>>24722050Dumb take. I never, ever, sit behind a car. Too scared of getting crushed between an f150 and a fwdcuckbox. I always split to the front.
>>24722087Are you retarded? That's called filtering, not splitting. I quite literally said I still filter. But regardless, I'm not worried about getting hit from behind because I got bright ass brake light(s) and I flash them multiple times until the car behind comes to a stop. A lot of retarded sport bikers do extremely stupid mods like getting "smoked out" tail lights which reduces the overall brightness. They also don't even keep the brake pressed when they come to a stop, so they aren't even alerting the car behind them that they are there. Bikes have 1 tiny little brake light and you don't even bother to press it while stopped then yeah you deserve to get sandiwched. t. over 200k miles of Los Angeles miles and never been hit from behind.
>>24719661>Why does this infuriate some people so much?Because in the US it's only legal in California so everywhere else they're breaking the law and if they get run over they have less standing. Partly because they cannot stand on legs that have been run over.
They just can't cope with it
>>24721571Lmao look at this faggot talking tough. Faggot if you hit my car I would beat you to death. Doesn't matter if you had your leathers and helmet on I would kill you with a few punches you fucking maggot. And noone would give a shit cos everyone hates you small dicked faggots.
>>24722274daww babby got smoked in his shitbox by some 500cc honda and now he mad
>>24722224Wonder what someone suddenly opening up their door in front of you at that speed would look like.
>>24722224Going to start quickly moving into bikers on the highway thanks for the idea when the die it wont even be on me
>>24722292Lmao yeah right I've got one of the fastest cars in japan and I'm also one of the best drivers. I can beat anyone. And after I beat faggot bikers on the road I follow them home and beat them and their families (sexing any of the females (ANY of them)). Literally no one cares.
>>24720402Holy based, I remember a video of some mad cunt driving past off duty coppers cycling in the road in the cycling zone, he said something along the lines of "why do you ride on the road if they make bicycle lanes fucking idiots"https://www.baka.com.au/national/nsw/cop-that-d-head-cyclists-in-viral-video-were-off-duty-policemen-20190131-p50upn.html

>>24722431Why, you scared little bitch boi?
>>24722423I ride my MTB in the city with very aggressive knobbies. There is a thanksgiving feast of traction on any surface. I also run a almost 9'' brake rotor up front with 4 piston brakes front and rear so I can stop on a dime. But yeah a lot of people shouldn't be on e-bikes.
>>24722443I only posted about the lack of traction because it happened to me and I fishtailed on sand strewn over concrete and crashed into a bridge. Was on older tires.e-mtb's are the future. Hope we can get a decade before mega gay laws come into effect.Mind you it was on a hardtail and I was dumb and young at the time but I don't fuck around with knobbies on bike trails anymore.
>>24720236>>24720295>>24720109Wake up cager, it's time to be stuck in traffic for 2 hours
>>24720104>You are going hit a car making a lane change or someone exiting a vehicle in a traffic jam.It's not the biker's fault if the driver of the car doesn't pay attention to the surroundings.
>>24722613Here lies Chadley SquidwardHe had the right of way
>>24719661I let them pass. Doesn't affect me, let them have their fun. t. never drove a bike and never will
>>24722328Remember the force air makes on your hand when you put it out of the window at that speed. Now multiply that force by the times that door is bigger than your hand. I doubt you'd be able to open it easily.
>>24720417A drag race at every light sounds badass.
>>24722643The hand out has a large force when it's perpendicular to the direction of travel because the air wants to decelerate it to zero. Considering the angle that the car door opens is small, the sin of that will be small, so the force against the door won't be anywhere near if it were proportional to the entire area of the door. It's only proportional to the area of the door presented to the direction of travel.Granted, most interior car door handles are near the hinge so they've got a shitty lever arm, but if one was pushing on the rear (lateral when open) end of the door while working the latch with the other hand, it'd be easy, probably. It might also be doable if they use one hand and push with their elbow and/or shoulder.
>>24720475>>24721674Yeah I hit mirrors every now and then too, shoulda moved over more desu, it's not hardI've never actually broken a mirror but I'll wave a sorry if I can, but big whoop really
>>24722428Uh yeah, lights kinda matter retard. Babby first time riding a motorcycle at night?
>>24720506uhit's the same thing
>>24722745Except, it's not. Uneducated amerimut.
>>24720156>captionsHoly fucking cringe
>>24721674This is a dick move. You damage someone's car, you own up to it and pay to fix it.And "my mirror just folds in"... Car mirrors aren't meant to FOLD BACKWARDS. They will never just FOLD IN. They arent built for jerkoffs to hit them and fold them backwards. Asshat.
>>24722771he's lying. if he hit a mirror hard enough to knock it clean off, the impact alone would violently turn his handlebar and make him crash.
>>24722789Unless he's knocking skinny little chrome mirrors off of classic cars in which case double fuck this triple nigger.
>>24722801his story just doesn't really add up. the 405 in LA county is usually jammed up at all hours of the day and the lanes are quite large and there's even a carpool lane, which is where 95% of riders split lanes because it's the safest. i just don't see a scenario where a rider would hit a cars' mirror on that freeway unless the car was the one being a dick and swerved into him.
>>24719661Slowly and carefully lanesplitting during standstill traffic? Fine by me.>>24722224This shit? I hope you end up as roadkill.

I don't really mind or care, except when traffic's going 40km/h and they're passing between lanes at 80, any lane change becomes dangerous.Or in stuck traffic, when I see one on my left and make space, another tries passing on the right.Or in narrow neighborhood streets when they go opposite way on one way roads, especially food delivery scooters.Our when they come out opposite from one way roads onto a main street and they demand you know they're there and let the through.Or when they don't feel like waiting for the red light, so they go on the pavement and pass with the pedestrians.
What would just be a fender-bender between cars can be fucking grievous injury or death for a biker (be it bicyclist or biker).Nobody wants to deal with the potential headaches of someone getting injured, so people have to give bikers a wider berth
>>24722860He killed a biker, not a white man.Bikers don't amount as people.Also he's a black American, not a nigger, that's why he got away with it
>>24722789Breaking mirrors isn't hard, but thanks for proving you're no bike. Here's a guy breaking the mirror off a tesla. Those are like $1000 mirrors to replace due to the sensors and cameras.
>>24723076no shit retard. he broke it off with his hand, not the bike's handlebar. if I was no bike how would i know he's riding a Gixxer 750?
>>24723076Wow. What a fucking dumb nigger. Raging over nothing and causing property damage because he wanted to go fast but normal traffic wasn't letting him.
>>24719661>be sitting in friend's car stuck in traffic jam>bike nigger speeds by and clips the side of a truck>bike nigger falls down and gets his top arm and shoulder run over by semi truck coming the opposite way, wheel nearly misses his head>police concludes bike nigger is at fault because he crossed the double linethat was a good day
>>24719661I’m fairly certain this is an American and other assorted untermensch problem. We filtered on my first ever riding lesson when I was getting my beginner’s license.
>>24722856>jailed for bantzhow do ausfags live with themselves?
>>24723076These are the reason people don't like bikes. Dash cams front and rear would get his plate info and fuck him and his insurance premiums. Guessing this was a tesla though given the camera angle.
>>24720295imagine getting this buttmad over a fucking bike kek
I lane split every time I ride. If you make it look smooth and just meander through traffic at a leisurely pace, car drivers remain calm and you pretty much get away with it. I bonked a couple of mirrors on my leaner bike, bike mirrors are floppy and just fold away. The mirrors on this bike are way heavier and more expensive so I don’t filter as aggressively
>>24720156Those captions are cringe. Most people don't give a fuck.>125ccThat's cute, did your boyfriend buy it for you?
>>24719686>>24720109>>24720236>>24720293>>24720295>>24720400Niggers.>>24720156Faggot.>>24720378>CueWhile I agree that many bikers filter too fast and that they do eventually have to enter regular traffic again, you have to look at the big picture rather than look at every pass as a personal slight. Don't focus on the bikes that were behind you that are "cutting you in line," think of the bikes that were already ahead of you to begin with that are now long gone instead of you being stuck behind an extra hundred SUVs clogging up the road in front of you. Bikes take up only a quarter of the parking space and even less than that in a traffic jam.Here's a picture of a small section of road down the main drag of Sturgis. In this small section there's enough parking spaces for 23 cars, but there's over 90 bikes with a few spaces to spare. On just the three blocks of a relatively small town there's parking for 600 motorcycles. There's enough parking in that same space for about 150 cars, leaving a line of cars a mile and a half long stuck in traffic.
I'm currently editing a video of me lanesplitling cause I wanna upload it to tiktok to make flyover cucks seethe.
>>24722841i'm white but work with plenty of viets. Honestly they're kinda based, better than the blacks anyway.
>>24720410I'd agree with this if cyclists weren't retarded and didn't filter at 40 mph while everyone else is going 5-10 mph
>>24719683Shut up. Stop playing devil's advocate.
>>24725011Bikes are not very common in my area so when they do split lanes they are effectively cue jumping. What you said would make more sense for a more bike oriented society (like latin america or asia).
>>24725458>cue One bike on the road is still one less car retard. Don’t think of the bikes as queue jumpers, think of them as not being part of the queue at all. You chose to be a part of it by driving a car when you could have bought your own bike or taken the bus >just realised that other poster already meme arrowed your shit spellingListen here ESLqueue: line of people cue: indication that something planned is happening
personally, I don't like it when bikefriends lane split because it makes me nervous I'm going to hit them. I understand it's a major advantage of riding, but I always get tense and try to drive as predicatbly as possible.
>>24722730you're invisible no matter what.
>>24722745filtering is going between cars in stopped traffic. splitting is going between cars while moving.Splitting is legal in californiaFiltering is legal in Utah, Oregon, and a few other places while at a red light. If the light turns green, you're supposed to stop and fall in wherever you were when the light changed instead of just continuing to the front of the pack.
>>24725535>think of them as not being part of the queue at all. they eventually have to cut someone off to be properly situated in a lane so they are cutting the line, now if it was legal for them to lane split 247 then this wouldn't be an issue. >You chose to be a part of it by driving a car when you could have bought your own bike or taken the busbikes are deathtraps and the bus kind of sucks
>>24719661I wish more states allowed this
>>24725635>so they are cutting the linethere is no line you stupid motherfucker. driving isn't a queue. Lane splitting is like walking past someone in a mall. You're all just people trying to get to a destination.
>>24725695>driving isn't a queue.traffic is>Lane splitting is like walking past someone in a mallnope, its like walking between 2 lines and then going ahead of people in one
>>24719661Because no biker does it in a mellow/sensible way, it's always nigger tier lane splitting in the blink of an eye. A few months ago I was up north in the boonies visiting my dad and going down some big boulevard changing to the inner lane to make a left up at the intersection and out of nowhere some dick on a crotch rocket in his Power Rangers looking race leathers and helmet lane splits me right then forcing me to swerve back into my lane so I didn't have some sick bike leave a neon scuff down the whole left side of my car while yeeting the rider a few hundred yards down the road.
>>24719671You'd probably reee if a car rode up the center lane/median/left turn lane and whipped in front of you, why does doing effectively the same thing via motorcycle make it ok?!
>>24725635>they eventually have to cut someone offWhy? Are you implying nobody would let them in? Cars always let me in, I have never been forced to cut a car off>bikes are deathtraps Well looks like if you weren’t a coward you’d be able to get ahead like motorcyclists do >the bus kind of sucksWell no shit >>24725704>traffic isA queue to get to lots of different places. How do you know the bike is trying to get to the same place as you? >walking between 2 lines and then going ahead of people in oneGoing ahead implying making them wait? But haven’t we established that the bike doesn’t take up space in traffic, so therefore doesn’t make anyone wait?Remember the bike is one less car, so you actually have to wait less
>>24722673>do all of this stupid stuff because unable to cope with bike chad>crash in the process
>>24725704the mall analogy is actually pretty perfect. everyone is just trying to get somewhere, and there are a lot of "lanes" for people to travel in. If you're stopping there to pick up a shirt at like h&m or where ever, are you going to just stand and wait behind Stacy who's going to forever 21 just because she walked into the mall ahead of you?
>>24725711>Because no biker does it in a mellow/sensible way>>24724813 does >and out of nowhereSo you didn’t look properly. If you do a head check before you change lanes you probably would have seen him, bikes are usually painted bright colours and have headlights on all the time >forcing me to swerve back into my laneThat’s definitely a risky move on a bike, I wouldn’t do it since I don’t have the Newtonian right of way. You wouldn’t have posted this if a truck did that to you though>>24725715This is actually a good point, if a car did that and then smoothly slotted into traffic without cutting anyone off then technically they haven’t caused a problem. The issue is, if every car driver did that there would be chaos. Almost every motorcyclist does this, and there isn’t a problem. The key is in the size difference between cars and bikes
>>24725711>then forcing me to swerve back into my lane so I didn't haveSounds like you're just a shitty driver. This implies that the motorcyclist would have ran straight into you if you hadn't "swerved", which is just BS. You didn't have to do anything, you're just mad cause he zoomed by you and it scared you because you have low test and drink onions.
>>24725704you sound like the kind of guy that will go 5 under speed limit in the left lane, or even match the speed of the car next to you, because you don't want anyone to get ahead of you.
as someone who actually killed a biker in an auto accident, this thread gives me anxiety

>>24725767Well if he was at all speeding or splitting then don't trip, even if you were doing something like running a red light.Any motorcycle hoon who's not an utter faggot knows the risk, and wouldn't blame you when they themselves are also similarly guilty of riding like a dumbass.I speak for literally every person who has ever and will ever ride a motorcycle, and I completely forgive you.
>>24725779cool fake scenario, here's how it would actually work.>car lining up for left turn lane in gridlocked traffic>trandom lane splitter bike cuts in front of car>get left turn signal>bike goes through signal before the car even reacts to the light turning green, because bikes accelerate faster than cars and are virtually always paying attention to lights (they want to go when it turns green, that's why the filtered to the front.)>car can go through the exact same they would with or without the bike because the bike doesn't affect them in any way
>>24725767We're you at fault anon? Shitposting aside that would be hard to live with
>>24725798bike took the spot of the car which couldve gone through the light if an extra vehicle didnt pop in front.
>>24725818Traffic lights don’t count cars my dude. The bike does not impede the car in this situation because the bike is in front of the car, leaves before the car, and faster than the car
>>24725818Bikes accelerate much faster than cars. Even on a 250, I guarantee that I'll be leaving the light faster than you can react to it.
>>24722328>opening up their door in front of youImprobable.More like: The bike is moving up very fast compared to the normal flow of traffic. And it is mostly hidden behind cars that it is overtaking. So I'm getting ready to move from the left to the right lane. I check my mirrors and blind spot. Nothing. But within a second, a bike that I had no way of seeing has now pulled alongside me. RIP biker.
>>24725818>bike took the spot of the carbike will continue to lane split after the light and not be in the way of the car at all.I'm also usually half in the cross walk at red lights specifically to be in front of cars.I can think of one time in the last like 3 months at least that I've actually noticed a car keep up with me when a light turned green. It's such a rare occurrence that I actually notice when it happens.and I'm not even riding like a cunt, I'm just taking off and accelerating at a normal speed on a pretty slow bike.
>>24719686>Crabs in a bucket nigger mentality
>>24725843>>24725849bike can only make a left turn as quick as the vehicle ahead of it the same as any car. end result is still the same, had the bike not cut ahead of other people then the car which had to stop after the left turn signal changed would have had an opportunity to go through. now if they split lanes 247 like in third world countries this probably wouldnt be as much of a nuisance since they are never really going in front of anyone and are effectively in their own layer of traffic.
>>24725906>ahead of ityou really don't understand the concept of splitting
>>24725943i said splitting wouldnt matter if they split all the time but here they split to get ahead of traffic and then merge back into traffic effectively cutting other people off. no different than some nigger using the freeway onramp lane to cut ahead of street traffic.
>>24721666or you can keep the lane splitting where you have room, satan
>>24722613>what is right of waystop huffing gas
>>24720547Nice to know you big faggot ;)
>>24725726No nigger, it was an empty road (I was in the sticks, remember?) and I didn't count on a mother fucking go-go Power Ranger ripping down the lane stripe whiz past me right then doing a solid 80 to my 32.
>>24725739When I need to change lanes to the left to be in the turn lane for the upcoming intersection and the 2021 Manx TT champion blasts right past my car perfectly centered down the lane stripe from a fraction of a mile away in the previous split second yeah you DO have to swerve to miss them
>>24725715Because a motorcycle is typically skinny enough to do it without damaging my car.
>>24719661Only ever get pissed at people doing so at WOT. Cause not only is it incredibly wreckless speeding between carm but most the retards that do it cant seem to contol their bikes. Like ones a guy tried doing a wheelie at high speed in one while lane splitting and ran straight into a golf. They had no control at that speed and popping a wheeling bewteen cars is the dumbest shit ive seen in a while.
>>24725767My cousin fatally rekt himself on a bike the other year at 23. He was ripping across an intersection doing about 90 and flopped over hitting a wet patch of pavement and slid into a light pole. Hit it so hard his motorcycle snapped in two. Only good thing about it all was the cops and EMTs said he was instantly killed, I think of how bad it would suck to spend those final minutes of life racked with ungodly pain as you feel your life peter out of your body.
>>24726076It's the principle, Anon. Why even have lanes or right of way/road rules if all you have to do is just continuously jockey forward vs. the other vehicles? We could just do away with lane directions and shit too since fuck that bullshit, just point your whip whichever way you want to go, when you want to go, fuck it
>>24720109Won't be long before you get your mirror snatched sweetie
>>24726064>it was an empty roaddoesn't sound like it was empty
People are in a kind of superposition when in traffic. Either someone is going too fast, when someone passes them, or someone is going to slow when you catch up to them.In their head they are an above average driver, so they can objectively determine if someone is a bad driver at will. Also, GOTTA GET THERE FIRST.Luckily it's not an issue in my country, people in the outside lane of crawling motorway traffic will hug the shoulder to give us more room and (usually too late) move aside to let us filter the light queue as they come to a stop. For everything else, my side mirrors are very easy to fold in.
Because they have to sit in traffic for so long going to work in a huge ass car that has a single occupant. Surely, it's not the 4 wheeled vehicle that's the problem, it's that 2 wheeled one that takes up no space and causes no traffic congestion. Idk man, I give myself ample time to commute, so I just chill out with some jams and I get there when I get there, work is depressing enough without having to find a reason to be angry AND depressed before I even get there.
But really, what is the percentage of people that really have a problem? Most people are in their own little bubble when they turn the key.That said, there's a reason I own a car and a bike.https://youtu.be/ApfYV0lQBwQ
>>24719661>changes lanes in front of youheh, nothing personnel kid
>>24726081It's also extremely loud.Get really fucking sick of faggots on their 2 wheel tractors blasting past at a 1mp/h delta at WOT.Fantastic, your giant twin makes zero power and now we have to wait for you to pass and then get stuck behind another 2 vehicles that are closer than 10ft apart because your feet so damn big.
>>24726221Still baffles me how an 883 hits 60 at the same time a 30 year old 250 does from a stop.Ain't no replacement for displacement, apparently.
>>24726135It was empty until the crotch rocket guy flew past my left side in the blink of an eye gunning it from way back.
>>24726221that's not something that happens regularly, I'm not sure why you're pretending it does.
>>24726237so it wasn't empty, and you just weren't paying attention. you assumed it was empty instead of verifying before going over.so again, you're just a bad driver
>>24726243No, retard. It was empty save for the biker nearly off the edge of visible range suddenly cranking his Kawasaki Ninja 6000 R whatever-the-fuck-it-was and whipping by on my left when there was a totally empty right lane he could have just flew down like nothing.
>>24726243If the guy remained at his original speed both bike and car would have never come close to each other but being a fucking mong like most bikers he had to WOT it right then for who the fuck knows why. It was 2 pm on a Saturday in the fucking boonies, no idea what the rush was for. Maybe he wanted half-price opioids at the local scuzzy tavern? Fucking A for some reason the country seems to have no less drugs coursing through itself than the fucking hood of a big city. I don't get how people pretend the backwoods is some paradise of virtue and honest living country folk.
>>24719661There was a case in which the person infuriated was the lane splitter.https://www.fox4news.com/news/fort-worth-pd-motorcyclist-in-road-rage-shooting-killed-in-self-defenseHis name is hilarious. His online obituary got rekt by shitposters.
>>24726070you don't turn your head to check your blind spot before you change lanes?
>>24726240Perhaps not in your area.
>>24725704It's like walking between two lines and into a third line which normies can't enter because they are too obese to fit.
>>24725704Incorrect. I am neither slowing you down or speeding you up, I literally do not exist on your A to B time scale. I am not going to the same destination you, therefore I am not 'cutting' the line. It is traffic, not a KFC queue.
>>24725779>Turns red before car can get throughNot my problem. I'm 100m in front before you even look at the lights, let alone move your slushbox into drive. There is no excuse.
>>24726389That would imply their neck is physically capable of turning.
>>24726389I did, shit looked clear. Then the biking guy gunned it. I'm not a chink or a spic, I check my blind spot before changing lanes
>>24726264>It was empty save for the bikerso it wasn't empty
>>24726301>he had to WOT it right then for who the fuck knows why. >It was 2 pm on a Saturday in the fucking booniesYou answered your own question. Why are you even on this board if you can't figure this one out?
>>24722224That isn't safe or how filtering is supposed to be done. That is why people don't like bikes.
>>24722855>TXIt isn't even legal to filter like that, they shouldn't be surprised when they get cut off. Splitting is literally only safer/advisable where it is legal and done properly, not zipping through traffic going at or above the speed limit.
I turn slightly towards the other end if I see someone doing this to make extra room for them, why would I be mad about this?
>>24725704lol get dunked on cagie
>>24726509cutting ahead of people in a line in any sort of vehicle ends with someone behind you getting displaced by a car length. really simple logic here. >I am not going to the same destination youturning lane is a destination
Lane splitting/filtering is completely illegal in my state, every single time I've seen some idiot on a bike do it they follow up with increasingly aggressive/ dangerous behavior like running a red light or cutting people off.
>>24720156did an actual 12 year old made this webm?

>>24727400if you are stopped on the side of the street yes but in the middle of a freeway? >just notice door not closed properly>stuck in traffic>open door to pull it shut
>wake up>check the news >another biker death Good morning!
>>24720109This is a good way to catch a bullet.
>>24722613>bumper to bumper traffic moving at a crawl>want to change lanes>car kindly lets you in>begin lane change >get slammed into by a small dark thing traveling 30 times my speed >it came from between the lanes>it was moving between the carsNot my problem. You will be at fault.
My mirrors will punch you. In the face.
>>24728461cringe manlet crab
It only annoys yanks. Everywhere else in the world where filtering is legal, car/van/lorry/bus drivers will often pull over a bit to make room for you.

Not enough riders are skilled enough to do it every time without fucking it up. They also tend to do it faster than they reasonably should.

If it fits, I split. I carry ball bearings and spark plugs for people who try and box me in. Not my problem.
>>24730545Bikes are faster than your shitty truck. This doesn't make sense.
>>24719686He doesn't. Don't pretend every car driver on Earth doesn't drive through any car sized opening available to get around slowing or stopped traffic.>It's no different than driving on the shoulder to pass other carsWhich people do all the time to get to their turn or around obstructions. You don't fucking ride behind a wide load trailer for 100 miles because passing them is CROSSING THE HECKING LINES and you don't sit through 2 light cycles at the back of a line of people turning left to make a right because there's only supposed to be one lane unless you are some sort of Gigacindy.>>24726601If it wasn't the bike he'd be doing it in a piece of shit E36 or something anyways, people weaving through traffic at double the speed limit aren't the point and you know it.>>24722771>>24722789Learn to read retards. Most motorcycles mirrors are on a long pivoting arm that's easily moved by hand so they won't transfer enough force to knock off a car mirror or generally crash a bike. Ideally in car to car mirror contact the car coming from behind has its mirror get pushed back to avoid damage too but because of their surface area they have to be a lot stiffer and because the mounting plate hangs out itself they only narrow up by like 3 inches anyways.>>24725711How do you get "lane split" while changing lanes, and better yet, changing lanes with no other cars on the road. Your story doesn't make any fucking sense and you chug dicks.
constant anxiety of some fucker smashing my mirror, personally
>>24730565>blast you in the face as you try and wriggle by me on your cuck cycleSimple as.
>>24730587I've already gone 500 feet down the road and you're still stuck behind the Honda civic. Not my fault a magical spark plug flew from the sky and landed in your back window.
I kind of want a bike but there is nothing more feminine than relying on other people to keep you safe. Everytime you ride a motorcycle you're begging the other men around you to be gentle around you since you're so fragile. I could never do that. Also, I don't trust the tards on the road.
>>24730599Seethe more, bikelet.
>>24730602That's not true at all. Take a damn course and learn to ride before you dish out shitty opinions. The only person you rely on is yourself and your own skills. Learn to swerve, brake, emergency brake, brake then swerve, swerve then brake, go over obstacles, throttle out, drop a gear, etc. So many tools in your tool belt once you know how to use them make it so it doesn't even matter what the people around you do. I have cars pull out in front of me on every single ride and it doesn't even phase me because I know exactly what to do. You start to see things a mile away before they even happen. Only riders know what I'm talking about.>>24730606You're the one with a $300 broken windshield, not my problem cagie.

>>24730659Do you think water makes motorcycles crash? Are you retarded? They literally do MotoGP races in the rain without issues.
>>24722409Imagine spending $3k+ just to be a faggot on a bicycle
>>24730663Yes but youre not a MotoGP racer and you dont have that kind of bike/tire either. If you would actually drive a bike instead of just shitposting on a mongolian basket weaving forum you would know that wet markings are one of the most slippery surfaces for bikes. Wet markings like the one along the middle of the road youre driving on.
>>24730674>drive a bike
>>24730674They ride on slicks retard, street tires have even more grip. I've been riding for over 10 years lane splitting on the double set of yellow lines that separate the left lane from the carpool lane. Wet paint isn't slippery until you start leaning the bike at excessive angles, which isn't needed on the highways. Tell me how I know you've never ridden a motorcycle, cagie.
>>24730688Not the OP but Ive slipped on more crosswalks than I can count. And that was going straight and without breaking or accelerating.
>>24730685Who gives a fuck you pedantic bitch. Im still right.
>>24730693No offense but you can't ride for shit if you're slipping on crosswalks while going straight. You must ride on some bald ass tires or you have a piece of shit with a bent frame or handlebar. And I'm almost positive you're lying because of this line >going straight and without breaking or acceleratingYou're either on the throttle or you're braking (not breaking). There's no logical reason for you to be coasting over a painted line. You literally just made this up.
>>24730702Obv not during good weather im talking about rain when everything is wet. Also If breaking or accelerating makes it more likely to slip on a painted road why would I be doing either of those? I always coast over painted markings so I dont slip.
>>24730665Have you seen the /o/ meetup pics? A lot of people here could use the exercise.
>>24730711Being on the throttle loads your rear tire's contact patch into the ground, being on the brake loads your front tire's contact patch. When you're coasting your suspension is unloaded and unstable. No wonder you can't even drive straight over paint markings. Please sell your motorcycle if you haven't already. I fear you'll end up in a wheelchair if you keep almost crashing while going in a straight line. Rain is no excuse either. Literally go youtube search "motogymkhana in rain" and realize you're doing something horribly wrong.
>>24730698>Who gives a fuck you pedantic bitch. Im still right.
>>24730659Are you literally 7 years old
>>24730723>>24730740>Seething bike cucks BTFO'd
>>24719661Seems like filtering would be relatively safe because you've got some time to react to lane changing cagers but lane splitting just sounds like a quick way to personally meet Saint Peter, JC and the whole crew.
>>24730538Not at all. As long as you're not a jackass about it. Which you were just fine in that video, so have at it.
>>24730663>shitty squids are just as good as professional racersDon’t worry, you’ll learn to think more critically when you grow up.
>>24730968Maybe one day you'll learn that riding a motorcycle in the rain is no different than riding when dry, with the only exception being that you reduce lean angle when turning. Not really that hard bud.
>>24730800>NissanI wouldn't worry about it
>>24730674>>24730663>MotogpThey do the isle of man TT and Irish road racing in the rain.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU-ynRoqDEs
>>24731032They literally do not do the TT in the rain. Among other things the track is just too damn big where you can pass the pits when it's bone dry all the way around on slicks and end up in a monsoon on the other end of the track several minutes later, if it's raining at one end and not the other you'll destroy any wet tires before you get to where you need them, and if it starts drying out you'll murder your tires before you get back to the pits.

>>24735865Then once they hit the next set of lights, they filter through backed up traffic again. There's every chance that during the commute, there's enough traffic that they'll make it through the green light while the car is stuck waiting for at least a dozen slow shitters to get going. At no point in heavy traffic did the bike prevent the car from reaching its destination faster.
