No surprise to anyone paying attention but it’s not all rainbows and sunshine when it comes to laws and motorcycles. Do some traffic laws actively increase your risk factor instead of minimizing it?

To answer some common questions on the first one: Crashing due to failure to turn your ABS back ON requires a rider to: 1.) Disable it in the first place, which beginners rarely do. 2.) Forget one’s settings when rejoining the pavement, despite the obvious visual and tactile reminders that the surface has changed. 3.) Fail to notice the bright orange (ABS) light on the dash, which is another (more sensible) requirement of UNGTR 3 whenever ABS is disabled. And 4.) apply the brakes poorly enough to crash. All this requires a level of incompetence so high that it is actually less common. On the flip side, crashing due to failure to turn your ABS back OFF is easy. Off-roaders stop their bikes all the time - to consult a map, to chat with other riders, or simply because they stalled or tipped over. It’s common to quickly restart the bike and forget that ABS has automatically re-armed itself. There are no external reminders because the riding surface hasn’t changed, and the dash warning lights are now unlit (off-roaders rarely look at the dash anyway, since they are typically standing). On top of all this, no amount of braking skill can prevent a crash when ABS is working against you. My conclusion is that the law is poor, because it serves an unlikely level of incompetence at the cost of causing averagely-competent riders to crash. Most ADV folks will tell you that it has happened to them. Bear in mind that this does not affect the vast majority of motorcycles, which do not have switchable ABS in the first place. ~RF9

You have failed to realize the easiest solution to all of these problems. Stop being a motorcyclist and get a car, a van perhaps. The point being that these are all non issues that only exist because of cyclists and, if we remove the cyclists from the equation these problems disappear however, I’m not saying that motorbikes don’t have a place in society just that the only acceptable place for a bike is off the streets.

@Graeme Wilde I've forgotten to turn my ABS off as many times as I've forgotten to turn it back on... that is, at least once per ride! The visual cue argument is pretty flimsy, maybe it's obvious on some bikes but on the 701 you won't notice with a quick glimpse at the speedo...

In the UK there are no laws regarding lane filtering, there's just one sentence in the highway code that goes like "when filtering a rider must be able to safely avoid hazards". i.e. if you crash and you're arguing that it's not your fault, you have to prove that the hazard was unavoidable regardless of your speed. Also "tea sippers" 😄

The laws should presume intelligence. That's some straight up philosophy major shit right there. Unfortunately I feel like people don't know jack squat with anything, much less operating a motor vehicle. I remember my driving test back in like 2012-2013 in New Mexico. It required me to start the car, exit the parking lot, turn right, right, right again at a stop sign, turn right again, and again, and back into the parking lot. That was my on road test. My motorcycle test was more difficult, but was still only a two day course. No evasive maneuvering. No emergency stopping. Etc. So most people here are: stupid, ignorant, angry, distracted, or some combination of those. Coupled with no real enforcement of the vehicles being inspected, and the roads being poorly maintained, and you get one of the highest road fatality and crash rates in the nation.

Here in California surprisingly lane splitting or filtering is legal. Some guys do it at an unsafe speed.......but with all the traffic here I do it all the time.

For me, left turns are much easier than right because of sharp left turns on intersections and such. Around the city, all of the right turns will be sharp, while lefts are a lot wider and you can countersteer into the corner. Right are almost always "bicycle" turns. When speed is higher, I'm a bit more familiar with leaning the bike to the left than right and its pretty uneven. Parking lot practice is a good way to balance It out

I actually disagree with lane filtering and think your giving bad advice. How long have you actually been riding? You can't put your bike in a lane with another car right beside you. What are you supposed to do when you get to the front of traffic sitting a lane right next to another car? You think they're just going to let you cut in front of them in line? Two vehicles in a single lane is illegal unless it's two motorcycles abreast. I've also seen plenty of altercations due to motorcyclists pulling the lane splitting s*** at a stop. My advice is to don't do it or even think about it whether you're at a stoplight or not.

Lane filtering is safe in the countries where drivers don't get their licenses with the same ease as inserting a coin in a bubble gum machine. Sadly in North America we're entitled and as such licenses are issued with more ease than getting that coveted prize in the box of Cracker Jacks.

Over here in Ireland, we got rid of the yearly testing of motorbikes. It was here, but then people had the mentality of "well it passed the test so it's perfect" or "well I know it won't pass a test, but I'll wait intolerant the week before the test to fix it " both of those situations left riders not looking after their equipment the way they should, so they scrapped the yearly test (it's still there for cars etc.) But tried to teach the idea of check yourself before you wreck yourself

It's actually it's a very poor personality if someone chooses to to block the bikers, i mean, if there are Alot of people that ride motorcycles when they are going to a destination alone or with 2 people, traffics would decrease and skilled drivers will be formed, it also help some others stuffs, like, let's not mention sport bikes cuz they are not serious motorcycles, let's say ADV and Tourers like the R1200GS, R1200RT, Honda Africa twin, Honda Goldwing...ect, they are economics and they pollute less In my country, motorcycle used to be dangerous, but after many serious crashes with dead people, medias announced crashes like that, and everyone spoke about that, motorcycle were classed as dangerous but then they tried to see what's dangerous about them, they realized a small car's fault is always fatal to a bike, they started to be more aware in the roads, some people even bought 150cc bikes just in case they need to get faster to their destination, in the same time, those bikers that uses a car are skilled, they park well and they are almost always focused, they also leave rooms to the bikers, even when there isn't a bike, they stay in their lane Laws in USA needs to be more intelligent

I don't think I would feel safe while lane filtering among d-bag car drivers because it requires the drivers to be courteous and cooperative. It's similar to zipper merging and roundabouts in that regard. All three can be rationalized logically, but it's not realistic to expect that cooperation.

Lane Splitting, Lane filtering...synonymous language for 'I'm going to see who I can drive to road rage, and open a door on me for sport'. Maybe, with luck, it will be a thug who produces a section of black pipe or baseball bat, and then proceeds to take it out on me, my bike, and even my passenger too. Yeah...Splitting, Filtering, it all sounds like felony provocation to me...and I've rode bikes longer than FortNine has been alive...some things, you JUST DON'T DO!

Speed limits should also be increased... not just for motorbikes but for cars too. Google says the average maximum speed for a 600cc is 160mph, the speed limit in general is 60mph, we aren't utilising even half of the motorbikes capability... The same could be said for most cars.

I've been waiting so long for FN to correctly explain the benefits to lane filtering. Cager's don't get it (except those that also ride). Now can we have a tutorial about why our tyres wear more on the side facing the dividing line (hint, it's got nothing to do with road camber; hint 2, it was touched on in this video)?

Splitting lanes is legal in California and when riders do this in a sane manner (following the law as it's currently written) it's a fairly safe practice. Those riders shown in the video are clearly violating the California law and they're paying the price in spades. At a reasonable pace lane is splitting can be accomplished by relatively inexperienced and semi-skilled riders. The key to lane splitting is to do it at a speed just 10mph more than the traffic around the rider until he or she reaches about 30mph (tops). At that speed a rider can make adjustments as the situation changes.
SquidProQuo2112 Prieš 28 dienų
This has the same elements of argument as self canceling turn signals. If you are incompetent enough to not re-disable your ABS after restarting why should your bike not assume you don't need it to re-enable it when you forget to?

If you can trust people to remember to enable their abs when they're back on pavement, does it not follow that you can also expect people to remember to disable their abs when they start up? If you can't remember to re-disable your abs are you not the same as the fool who for would forget the re-enable it?

In most countries lane filtering is perfectly legal for motorcycles because in summer, they are in danger of getting unconcious due to overheating. That is espcially dangerous because Ambulances get stuck in traffic real damn quick.

The second idiot (2:49) ended up brain damaged, permanently in a hospital bed. Instead of whining to legalized unsafe riding, demand a filtering lane. I live in Taiwan where (if a cycling lane exists) motorcycles can use them to reach the stop box at the front. 4:20 - Neither can motorcyclists think outside the box. Instead of being in hurry when traffic slows to a crawl, pull over to the side where it's safe. And plan your route better so you avoid heavy traffic.

In Chile, it's legal for motorbikes and bikes to drive between stopped cars when there's traffic, in a red light or in a stop sign so the biker or motorbiker gets to the stop line in front of the cars. But some cars drivers don't allow you to do that, specially to bikes. There's also the others drives that forces you to get away or between the cars so they can get in the spot by literally throwing the car to you. There's kinda like a war among the drives, the motorbikers, the bikers and the pedestrians.
