Lane-splitting crashes and close calls

The following is a list of forum threads about lane-splitting crashes and close calls from a log I have kept since 2005. They are from the involved rider or an eyewitness--no friend-of-a-friend stories. Most are from BARF, but a few are from other forums. Links are all good as I write this.

I'm posting this in hope of improving awareness about how lane-splitting crashes happen, for the purpose of preventing them. The vast majority are lane-change cut-offs, but there are others, too. I have not been selective in the exact circumstances of the incidents logged.
