Car Driver Opens Door on Passing Motorcyclists
A motorcyclist has many things to watch out for while out running around on our machines. Distracted drivers, potholes, road debris, oil spots, bugs, rocks, railroad tracks, dirt/gravel, bicyclists and the not so elusive Toyota Prius to just name a few...
I say this to you because almost every time I go out riding something crazy or bazaar happens that I have to make a mental note and add to the already enormous list of shit to watch out for. I do this to better handle the situation when I come across it again. I have now added "car door" to my list... I encourage each and everyone of you to do the same. Expect the unexpected.
Please be aware of motorcyclists. Share this video and raise awareness! Also, if you couldn't tell, the door of the car struck the passenger of the bike in front of me.
BASH041 - Was the rider in front of me.
CarsOnCars - Was the rider behind me
FYI - Lane Splitting or "filtering" IS LEGAL in California. I also want to add, my bikes gearing has been modified and the speedometer reads 5-10mph faster than my actual speed.
