This is the only mention of this fact so far. I have been driving a car for almost 8 years and have NEVER had an experience like I have had on a bike after 1 MONTH of driving. I was lane splitting (legal in CA) and had some a-hole cager actually TRY TO HIT ME! For this reason alone bikes are more dangerous than cars let alone the rest of the reasons mentioned earlier. 50/50 rule guys: 50% of the people don't see you and the other 50% are TRYING TO KILL YOU!

I'll take the challenge since your argument just solidifies everyone elses point except your own.GixxerSixxer said:I said that because if one were to ride with less than full concentration, then they would be more dangerous. If one rides safely and attentively (not necessarily defensively) then I believe they are just as safe as cars (weather and surface pemitting).
Anyone else want to challenge me? I am the reigning champ. HAHAHA!!!!
Oh yeah...I remember that thread...I just did not remember it was yours. Sorry about your bike, but I am glad to hear it was just a "whore" and not your ignorance as to which is safer.GixxerSixxer said:No... wait...YOU DON'T!! Actually, Carvin, my bike was totalled be a stupid woman driver (no offense). I was a half a mile away at the time. See the thread "So, this whore hit my bike" in the Daily Rider Forum.
I tend not to lane split. It's too damn scary for me. I'll stick to Malibu Cyn!
