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.

I've seen the guy on the Ducati a bunch of times. He lives up somewhere near Cal State East Bay. Seems competent if not a bit aggressive.

Close call from the ride home yesterday, I was moving a tad too fast but he didn't look at all AFAICT, gave him some rear tire noise to put the fear of killing motorcyclists into him:

Thanks budman, I'll embed videos in the future. My 2003 FJR doesn't have ABS- I tend to over-use the rear brake as a cruiser rider, but in this case was just making noise on purpose. Seems like it might've burned me though- I got into the garage this morning and found a flat rear tire.
