Seen that happened and seen that almost happened countless times. Oh well.. we're all just following the good example set by the traffic police bikers.Originally Posted by Speed
I'm a biker as well as driver. I used to spend a lot of time on the roads (trolling roads if you like)driving and riding but have toned down quite a lot nowadays.. (due to high petrol prices) still travel a lot on weekends though.
We can squeeze (why call it 'squeeze' also?) becos there really is a lot of space between cars on each lane and I'm not even on the dotted lines.
If you notice carefully in future, the bikes dun travel on the dotted lines most of the time. We will always be on the side of the dotted line, only when there are 2 cars in parallel will we go onto the dotted line, once passed it, it's back to the side of the lane.
All I can say is, no matter if anyone is riding or driving, it pays to check your blind spot and signal (early) even for those 2 blinkers (signal on, blink twice, off signal) they do give bikers at least 2 seconds of early warning to slow down or swerve away.
