Lane Splitting and Death wish?

Where I ride lane splitting isnít allow so watching this probably adds to my WTF feeling. These guys are in my mind what gives motorcyclists a bad name. All of that put aside the video does show the ďManeuver abilityĒ of the GS.

Yes there are lots of bikers who lane-split dangerously, especially on the highway. As in, doing 80 mph in between cars that are doing 65 mph. I lane split every day but mostly at speeds under 15 mph in between cars that are just sitting waiting for traffic light changes.

They won't be around long. You can only push your luck like that so far.

Brazilian style. This is everyday on the streets of Sao Paulo!

All of the deliveries in town are made by motorcycle (pizza, documents, flowers... whatever) and we have a looooot of these guys (motoboys) running like mad dogs. A couple of them die a day and don't dare leave no space for them to split lanes because you will lose your side mirrors.

Anyone can ride like an ass and crazy organ doner maniac like that guy.

It makes my ride today to work look so uneventful. I'm on my wife's G310R behind a Ducati 999. (I sold my Ducati 999 last weekend).
