This wasn’t sweet to come up on. Thought the rider was over the bridge then saw his silhouette at the other end of the bridge. He was taken out by car. Was very scraped up but okay. We left him with the police, who automatically asked if had been drinking. Please give motorcycles room and watch for them. This guy was lucky.

reblogged because i saw a motorcyclist almost get taken out yesterday on the highway as a car changed lanes without signaling. lane splitting is something you have to watch out for as well. it’s illegal in most states, but in california bikes have the right to drive between lanes on the lane markers and overcome slower traffic. it’s sketch as fuck- i’m obviously against it, and i always make a point to look for bikes but it’s tough when they take up less space and don’t have to stay with the flow of traffic if they don’t want to. so if you’re barely crawling on the highway in rush hour traffic, just look twice before changing lanes since a bike could be coming up on you from behind at 60mph.
