There are many dangers involved with lane splitting and the last thing motorcyclists need is more danger. That is why I was so impressed to see a fellow on a new Ducati Monster react in a certain way when there was a line-up of about 15 cars on Oak Street this morning.
He knew better than to try and weave his way between the rows of cars. But as we all know our time is very important. So what did he do? Why, what any quick thinking motorcyclist would do. He rode on the sidewalk.
I am sure everyone who saw him thinks more highly of motorcyclists. Especially the environmentalists. He actually avoided idling for about 10 seconds.
