well I knew I was dun for as I lane splitted 3 cars to the light. I was in the left lane and made my way to the front in my lane. Didn't use the side but went in between the 3 cars in front of me and the bus in the right lane.
The 2nd car in front was a GVTA cruiser. So I made my way in front of the car in front of him. He couldn't see me after I had passed. So I give'r when the light goes. No lights on... hmmm. Ok better make a bit of distance. I went through 2 lights before he decided to chase me. I'm a good 3 blks ahead and figured wth I'll pull over.
He rips up behind me... I get off and check his door for the writing. GVTA. Cops getting all mad cause I was checking his door for the writing.
He writes me up for an "illegal lane change" ok no worries man... I'll sign.
What do you think is going to happen since I never actually left my lane.
BTW both him and his partner were 20yr vetran riders that had never takin training, they were also harley riders. you know the were better then you sportbike mentality.
To top it off when we go to leave he tails me to my work 8blks away on winston. I was riding 50 in a 50 zone and he was ripping up fast on me to keep up. Then tailgated me until I turned off.
I then picked up my work truck and decided to head to the nearest timmies. lougheed just west of willingdon. sure enough they are in there having coffee laughing about it.
those of you who have gotten a ticket for lane splitting to the front of the pack can you chime in. Yes we know it's wrong.. well not allowed, but I'd just like some feedback from those who have delt with the issue.
yes I was late for work.. even more so after the pull over.
