    Motor Bike Lane Filtering

    Being a Rider and not real comfortable with filtering at times which i will do when i feel safe to do so i will .

    The main time i will do it is at lights as to save being rear ended which is one of my fears.

    But this is what really gets me is the stupidity of some car drivers that think it is their god given right to enforce their opinion of what is right by them
    Check the Vids

    When will drivers learn lane filtering is legal? - Motorbike Writer

    Lane filtering doesnt worry me in the slightest so long as I don't get the side of the car hit - Its never been a problem.

    Your quote is golden though, its the same with pushbikes, so I feel your pain. What is the law and what some people think the law should be are two totally different things. Some people bang on about it, but its just ignorance, greed and ego usually.

    I remember whan I used to commute in Sydney.
    I had one woman abuse me while talikng on a mobile phone and eating, and another tried to kill me and actually hit my leg with his bumper on takeoff. It was illegal back then so I couldn't tell the cops.
    One bloke got out of his car when I was behind him not filtering and abused me for having my headlight on, as it was dazzling in his RV mirror. Honda Hornet 900s had hard wired headlights. He then chased me so I had to filter moving traffic.
    Good old Sydney.

    That guy should be taken off the road as should his passenger. The 2 of them were treating it as sport.
    Personally i do the opposite and move over to let the bikes through when in the car.
    Never have i been held up by a motorcycle in front of me so whats the point in trying to keep them behind me.
    Being rear ended is a real problem for bikes but its amazing how many cars i see running the red. Bikes and cars taking off quickly when the lights go green run the risk of being collected by those idiots also.

    Yep. I never blast off from the lights without checking the cars have stopped or are obviously stopping. I see red light runners every day.

    Likewise.
    Its a fine line between being safe and not ****ing off the car your about to burn off from the lights.
    1 rule i have is never to get in front of a tradie ute especially if they have P plates. Those guys are worse than Black BMW's and White Audi's.Thats saying something!!
