I am riding home from work today. I come to a red light and I ride the line to the front. I stop between the 2 cars with my front tire in the crosswalk. The light turns green and the guy on my right floors it so I won't get in front of him. Obviously I could easily get in front of him, but I wasn't expecting it. It kind of pissed me off. What a D***! Anyone experience this? It's the first time this has happened to me.

Thank god for cali! Incidently the first time this happened to me it was a guy in a caravan with his fam in the car? WTF? That was also the first weelie I did on the bike cuz the lane went from 2-1 and I was already ahead but heard him punch it, looked over and saw him trying to get in front:tard:

I guess I'll just have to get used to it. I'm sure it will happen again and again. At least it's legal here to lane split. It has been freakin too hot to sit in traffic. I'll have to take the good with the bad. It still pissed me off though.

You will have to get used to it. Just keep your cool and don't fall into that trap. They get mad because they feel we are doing something wrong and are cheating somehow....

lane splitting is only legal on the freeways of 3 or more lanes... never on the local roads... and even then it is very subjective to the officers mood when he pulls you over for lane splitting to say whether or not it is illegal or not

Stopped at a light and had this guy in an impala blow by me, this was the virgin voyage for my bike so i had to test it out a bit, kicked it, blew by him and then let off on the trottle. Felt great!
