Good post Dan. Solid commentary.

I will do two fingers on the brake myself. Often do that in the hills too where you can find critters.

Still.... that helmet.

Excellent lane-splitting video

I've cross-posted this from the lane-splitting thread for additional exposure:

This is one of the best lane-splitting how-to videos I've seen. It demonstrates lots of good practices.

The narrator/rider, a moto-journalist at Ultimate Motorcycling, has a great attitude about splitting that contributes to a safer, lower stress commute.

Superior commentary. She gets it.

Overall it is a good vid, but...

The helmet camera is not ideal for long videos, it can induce a bit of motion sickness in viewers.

She maintains her initial splitting position when in the gaps between traffic. Arguably the riskiest place during the split. I suggest that moving into the empty lane gives a bigger space cushion. Sometimes 1-2ft can be a lifesaving distance.

I objected to that, too. She even makes a point of it at 1:40, "...try to ride as straight of a line down the channel as you can...in other words, don't weave..." But she then goes on to recommend caution when there's "an empty space like this to the right" as she enters the area of a gap in the #2. As you say, a few feet of space makes it easier to avoid a cutoff in that situation.

Here is a little safety piece from Randy Mamola.

Nothing we don't really know already.. and least most of us, but still cool.
