Now personally, i never do this this kind of splitting, but i'd like to gauge the opinion of the wider motorcycling community. So this morning on my commute via Five Dock, cruising along in the left track of a single lane through steady traffic. Up ahead, a rider going the opposite way decided traffic was too much for him, decided to lane split - crossing the centre line and riding between cars going opposite directions. It didn't bother me one bit as i had enough buffer space and i saw him jump out of traffic, but the cages in front had to veer away from him as he approached, same thing on my rear view as he passed. I'm of the mantra to ride your own ride, and if this is the rider's style, then more power to him. But is this riding behaviour acceptable in the overall commuting community?
