This morning I was late for work, so I was filtering through as much traffic as I could to make up for the time I slept in (damn you Monday!).

I filtered through to the front of the lane and I heard a beep, so I look back and see some an asian guy (probably in his early to mid 30s). Now I'm not good at lip reading but I could tell very well that he said "what the f*ck!?". Of course I didn't care since I was more worried about being late for work.

Just wondering has anyone else had something similar happen to them?

Yes, yes I have. I passed a guy on the hwy once and pulled back in in front of him without indicating and got a pretty long beep. I was going pretty quickly though, like I was prettymuch doing nothing legal.

the other day i was sitting in traffic (in my car) on the right lane of a 2-laned road and a bike flew straight past me on the left side. The lady in the car to my left looked at me and she was like f*cking morons!! And I just looked at her and said something like "yeah guys on biks, they're real fuckwits aren't they?" haha :)

I think it pisses everyone off in cars. But as long as you don't hit their car or mirror, it doesn't affect them at all.. Because the bike will always take off faster at the lights anyways so it doesn't slow them down..

people tend to do that when i lane split, mainly cos of the cracks that suddenly appear in their windscreen due to the stupidly loud exhaust

prob the worst experience i had was when i was also heading to work and i filter every now and then, sometimes just at specific intersections cause the lanes are so wide.

Anyway filtered to the front and this lady in the car to my right was giving me the biggest dirty 'what the f are you doing' look.

As the light went green she completely nailed it and pulled left coming to within cm of my bike and body but in the process running over my foot with her front tire. Could have been so much worse, what a retard. But i learnt my lesson, take off like a GP bike if i ever filter now.

I gunned it after her pulling up along side and waiting for the next intersection to be red so i could have a few wise words with her but she quickly turned into a side street.

I've never really had any problems.

Just don't speed filter, take it slow and pick your intersections.

Also, when you're still filtering to the front as the lights go green, give it a few big revs so the cars beside you, who probably haven't seen you, know you're there.

Thats why you guys need to carry a sawn off shotty with you and then flash it when anyones gives these beeps, dirties etc

But seriously I havent had anyone beep at me, in fact in most cases cars manouver themslves out of the way if the gap just isn't there to make room for me to squeeze through

It was near the front of the lane. I pretty much had my clutch in and was just pushing my bike through.

Of course he thought he was a sick k*nt driving his Merc and was tailgating me. So I just slowed down and kept tapping the brakes... fkn idiots!

Btw this is the first time that this has happened to me... To be honest I've hit a few mirrors (maybe 3?) and people usually don't care.

for every person that gets shitty about me lane filtering, there's half a dozen who readily move their car out of the way to make it easier for me.
you can always tell a cager who rides too :)

I've had a few beeps, but generally it's just some simpleton stuck way behind the lights.

Recently I've not had any troubles, so either people have started to accept filtering or my care factor has dropped to new lows.

I will have to go out and try it, maybe it will make me believe people when they say it happens. although I do have a rather large rear sprocket at the moment so my bike is not the best to try it on if I want to see how possible it is on a cbr... anyone want to lend me their bike?

Hurrr.. I want to try something but I'm afraid it'll fuck my bike, anyone want to lend me theirs so I can see how much damage it does?

Wheelieing a 250 is a piece of piss mang:


^^ little noobie one from ages back. Just lean back, revs up and dump the clutch.
