I was going along Springvale Rd yesterday when I noticed some motards in the mirror just as I went past The Glen shopping centre (heading toward Burwood Hwy). One split past quite quickly then stayed in front of me for a while. That was fine with me. Another one came past and all was cool. If I'd still had a bike, I wouldn't have gone out on it yesterday because I wasn't totally alert. A short time later, I looked to my left and what did I see? A motard was in my lane riding parallel to my front passenger door for a good 5 seconds. The worst thing is that I was parallel with a Commodore. I considered myself to be too far to the right in the lane and if I'd moved my car over without looking (like I almost did) then the motard rider would have been in trouble. They were all BMW motards and they all seemed to be brand new so I guess it may have been a test ride for a group or the dealers??? This happened around 4:!5pm yesterday. My message is that if anyone is going to split then pass quickly. Fools who do like the parallel riding motard rider are just looking for trouble.
