Would you look at all the butthurt motherfarkers up in this thread angry because they make a conscious decision to be stuck in their vehicles in freeway gridlock.

Enjoy that impotent rage while I split on past your pathetic ass.

Mock26: And they will more than likely lose, unless the person they hit was doing something illegal or dangerous.


Yeah, but they still get to go through the joys of being sued.

It isn't jealousy or rage.  It's same road, same rules, dude.  Allowing a portion of traffic to create additional lanes makes every car's lane change equivalent to crossing 2 lanes for each shift over.

Maybe. Maybe not.

No, no it does not...  Not in the least.

Maybe if there was an equal 1 to 1 ratio of four wheeled vehicles to two wheeled vehicles on the road... But that is far from the case.  You're not sitting in gridlock while a steady stream of motorcycles endlessly split past,you... This isn't India or China.

Occasionally, once in a great while, a motorcycle will filter past you.

In the United States motorcycle filtering whips the unwashed cage-laden masses into a frothy shiat-slinging frenzy...  But as others have pointed out, in the rest of the civilized world it's common practice.

I don't give a fark if one puts by me while stopped in traffic.  It's the asshats at high speed that split lanes while I'm doing 45+ that cause me to swerve away from a lane change that piss me off.

One... you're in farking Virginia.  Lanesplitting is only legal in the United States in California...  Where I am at.

Nobody should be lanesplitting in Virginia, period.  If they are... at low or high speeds, they're doing it around motorists who are not accustomed at all to motorcycles regularly filtering by.  If they bounce off a quarter panel it's their own damn fault.

Finally, that head of yours happens to sit on a stack of swivel joints in your neck.  They allow your head to turn from side to side.  You can even, (gasp) look over your shoulder before you change lanes instead of assuming that since there is nothing in your mirrors, there is nothing beside you.

If you can't be bothered to do that it's not the motorcycle you should worry about.  Your inattentive driving habits are going to have you changing lanes into the big rig that 'sneaks up' on you.  And well... graveyards are packed full of people who assumed they had the right of way.

I've lived in Cali and may have to go back.  And Looking over one's shoulder is all well and good if traffic is going roughly the same speed.  When a crotch rocket appears out of nowhere doing 5x the speed of traffic there's a problem.

And what inattentive habits have I advocated?  Why is SAME ROAD SAME RULES so goddamned burdensome?

What I've gathered based on your posts in this thread so far is that you simply suck at driving...  So much to the point that you can't even comprehend why you are rolling safety hazard to other motorists who have to share the road with you.

When you do eventually die in a fire in that ball of twisted metal you can apparently barely control here's to hoping you don't take any innocent victims with you as you check out.

Done with you at this point, move along.

What, precisely, have I said that has been as personally dickish as your post?

I'm quite confident I've driven in more places than you, but please continue to let your Cali motorcycle experience count for being a professional driver who deserves to his own set of rules.

BTW, there's a reason it's illegal in 49 states.

Please tell me you're not holding up India and China as "civilized".

You're going with an appeal to popularity?

I realize doyner said the above Repo Man, but I saw it thanks to you quoting it...  And, I had to laugh.

I wouldn't say it's so much my 'Cali motorcycle experience' that qualifies me as a professional driver as so much as it is the last decade of holding numerous roadracing licenses with National sanctioning bodies that all had my name and 'Pro' or 'Expert' somewhere on them in big letters.

Well, there's that... And the trophy case sitting next to me that's packed with various plaques, awards, medals, trophies... etc.

So, I'd have to respond that a decade of being aptly labeled a 'Professional Driver' distinctly qualifies me as being able to sniff out exactly when someone like doyner has the aptitude behind the wheel bestowed on a tree sloth.  Boy's match is hitting the sandpaper but it just isn't catching flame... he'll never get a clue.

Now I've gotta be to the track in 26 minutes, but I'm quite confident I can get there in 12.

I can't say I didn't expect that level of self-absorbed drivel that completely missed the nuance of my statement.

Yes, I get it--as I saw in your profile--you're a racer.  The point that you miss is that public roadways aren't your private farking racetrack.  My comment was a subtle reference to the very kind of behavior you espouse; splitting lanes at high speeds because in your imminent ability you deserve to have a separate set of rules.  On a closed track, everyone is driving with more or less equal (relative) ability.  This is not so on public highways.

It's rather telling that you're so certain of how I drive based on my simple assertion that all drivers should operate under the same set of rules.  I have you farkied as IMAX now...you're a magnificent projector.
