Riding like this .....this dude is gonna crash some day and when he does it's gonna be really really bad. I hate having to split lanes but here in NYC you do that or bake in the sun. When I do split, my biggest fear is having a car pull in to me. Riding this fast though....car pulls out.....you're done.
Used to ride like that back in the day but have simmered down some since then. I still think that splitting should be legal. To me saying that you can't split lanes is like saying that if your walking on the sidewalk you have to stop and move at the pace of traffic. Fact is, I don't take up as much room and my lane is smaller. No reason why a bike should have to wait with all the cagers. Just my 2 cents.
