I kind of figure that situation came on suddenly, so no opportunity to get off on the right side. But judging by your video, at times you could have stuck your arm out and lost it.
That was pretty awesome what you did, I think initially he wasn't thinking that clearly and could have put himself in harms way. Give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it.

How many miles were on it I wonder..I ride with some hardly and a 2 of them average near 50,000 miles a year or so. I don't know if I could put that many miles on a blke in year even if I had the time. They like long trips all over the country.

Not sure about the mileage but he said he was a newer rider and got it to lane split.

I was thinking about your camera today, and I wished you could have been where I was at. I was patiently riding along with congested traffic as it started to get dark, and one of those V8 sports utilities about bumped me out of my lane coming from a side street. After I stopped, barely, she burns out to get in front of me. Her window was down, so I called her a stupid b as I split lanes beside her.

She started burning her tires in forward and reverse (going nowhere stuck in traffic) for about a minute after I passed her (it must be Mom's car.) She had a pointy chin and her hair bunched up in a wrangled knot on her head. All I could think was she was a college athlete hyped up on testosterone supplements and alcohol. This video would have been a winner for you Joe: Only in California!

And it was 3/8 mile from that big Harley dealer on La Palma and Magnolia.

Been seriously considering a camera like Joe's, the price has come way down to the point that the SD card costs more

Glad you kept your cool, no matter what you said she could have easily crashed into you after your comment, your word against hers, and you would have been injured!!

Well he was on a Harley. You have to have a soft spot for them kinda like you do with a small child with down syndrome.

You're a good Samaritan Joe. Not many HD guy's would give hand to their fellow type much less an Yamadogger like you. However, in days of old, a lot of biker gang guys would have stopped to steal the bike.

Thats funny because as we were standing there at least 6 Harleys went by in the HOV lane and none of them even slowed down. They were probably afraid if they did stop their bikes might not start again.

I think you did good. But I disagree with the others on their opinion of Harleys. Last year while kneeling by the side of the road to change lenses on my camera a Harley rider stop to help the riders that went by on sport bikes or gold wings never gave us a glance .
It comes down to bikers stop to help bikers the rest don't want to be inconvenienced or they're just posers. No I don't own a Harley.

But, did you notice, that Harley is one of the new "Street" models, made in India! Apparently not the quality of the USA built ones, pardon the expression.

the Indian built Harleys are for the overseas market...the 750 and 500 street bikes for the USA are built here...

WHERE IS IT MADE? 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500: Is this affordable new Harley from India? Or Kansas City? We tell you the complete story.
