RE: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,23135010-2862,00.html Did anyone else see the comments regarding the fatality on the Monash yesterday? The MRAA are quoted several times and I must say that they do nothing to help our cause when it comes to laws such as lane splitting. From the herald sun: "Mr Karmouche said the practice was against the law but urged drivers to be on the lookout for passing motorcyclists in traffic jams. "Filtering is something every rider does. You need three or four inches on either side to do it safely," he said. "For some reason the bike has slipped or he was possibly fatigued. In this case he has been doing something thousands of riders do every day." Now lets see..... in these direct quotes I would draw the following conclusions if I were a non-rider: 1. Motorcyclists break the law, but please be careful around them when they are doing it and try to stay out of their way! 2. Motorcyclists are willing to risk their lives by mere inches. I would myself allow more then a few inches each side. 3. That thousands of motorcyclists slip on their bikes or ride fatigued every day! Very disappointing!!!
