    Default Suicide lane idiot

    So there I was in the cage between olifants an samrand this afternoon, stuck on the highway because of an accident. Minding my own business, going nowhere, if we move it's 2m at a time and the standing still for a while before we move again. So I left a lekker gap for the oaks on their 2 wheels to do legal lane splitting, no problems! Until the first idiot came past my right hand side, I did not expect it! Check my mirror, three more coming up the SL. So I open my window to show them to move to the left of the cars, what do I get??? Well same to you Mr asshole with no atgatt. Trying to do the right thing here!!!

    I was stuck in that same traffic yesterday.

    Never before have a cursed Shark for keeping my helmet so long.

    Also I have notices the guys in the SL. This had me quite in a confusing state.

    The traffic is standing still and the guys in the SL does no more than 20-30km/h they don't have to dodge mirrors and hit the breaks when the cars starts moving between lanes.

    On the other side you have the issue of cars going into the SL. But they are all standing still and bikes going at 20-30km/h, you can break within 5m?

    I am not trying to upset you guys, I would have probably waited in traffic behind the cars and hopefully one of you guys would have moved passed me in the BL and I would have followed you all the way.

    Sitting in traffic like that I kept myself busy watching the bikes and imagining myself being there on the bike, while cursing shark.

    Reading on this forum, the stats tell the story on where the safest place to ride is.....and this is never in the SL....

    Jip, hence the reason I will not go there.

    If it was not for this forum I would probably have gone that route.
