  • Please read regarding Lane Filtering Proposal

    On behalf of BCCOM

    BCCOM has recently written a proposal for the “Legalization of Lane Filtering” that will be sent to the Minister of Transportation for review. Below are some of the safety measures BCCOM has asked to be in place to allow lane filtering. Once our proposal has been reviewed we will post it in its entirety.

    “The rider must operate the motorcycle no more than 10 kilometers-an-hour faster than the rest of traffic.

    Traffic can’t be going over 30 kilometers -an-hour.

    Must not be done somewhere where the speed limit is less than 30 kilometers-an-hour such as a school, park or construction zone.

    Must never ride in between vehicles where the mirrors won’t be able to see the motorcyclists (semi-trucks, large RV’s) utilizing the “if you can’s see my mirrors I can’t see you” message."


    We a brief conversation with Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom this morning and was told he had gotten only a “handful” of emails regarding the “Lane Filtering” proposal. I have a meeting with him December 7th and I would like to see his office flooded with emails regarding the proposal. If you want lane filtering please take the time to send an email supporting it. In the proposal part of the reasoning we used was reduction of congestion and green house gasses as well as safety factors i.e. rear ends. There are 2 studies on the front page of the BCCOM site www.bccom-bc.com for more information.

    Timing is what's killed Pedrosa's chances. With Marc Marquez's arrival, Pedrosa will probably go down in history as the best rider to never win a championship.

    Yes it seems to be right in the heart of the hotel district. Not as far down I-5. Should be lots to do in the area. 7 blocks from the Pike Place Market.

    RMR Suspensions reviews?

    Thread Starter: Stewy

    Hey Guys, I've never had any of my bikes' suspensions properly 'setup', other than some subtle tweaks myself. I have been considering having RMR do a setup on my K7 gixxer...seems reasonable for what they charge. I'd imagine that it' money well spent. Thoughts or reviews on these guys? Too...

    Went for a quick spin into Whistler this afternoon, got held up on the north slope up suicide hill. Sitting there, I just had the feeling it was a rider down. Sure enough, sportbike smushed between the fender of a CR-V and the guardrail. When I came back quite some time later, crews were still...
