You cannot lane split in Indiana and if you could I would not do it. I would take the side of the road instead. However we can go on red if we have been waiting a reasonable amount of time and not get a ticket.

I don't want to see anyone crash. But if you play stupid games, you will win stupid prizes. Right or wrong that cager had its signal on with intentions clearly made. Remember YOU are invisible at any speed and should ride with that understanding. Everything is your fault on a motorcycle - even when it is not your fault. We pay for our mistakes and everyone else's with our blood and sometimes our lives for simply being out there. I'm glad you were not seriously injured.

And that is why lane splitting is dumb. Sorry, there is no good way to safely merge motorcycle and automobile traffic in those conditions.

You said 4 weeks to recover. What was the injury?

Never ride faster than you can stop

Road rash on my knee mostly. A little on my side. And the turn signal was NOT on. That is sun glare. The driver actually claimed to insurance that he wasn't even changing lanes FYI

I thought lane splitting was for STOPPED or under 5mph traffic... I saw you crashing from the beginning of the video. Glad you're healed up though.

damn that really sucks dude. Glad you were relatively okay and healed up. You were going way too fast for those traffic conditions though; I saw your speedo between 52 and 59, and continued at a similar speed into the denser traffic. Don't get me wrong, I think lane splitting is a good thing UNDER THE RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCES, but you always need to be watching for precisely that situation. Had you been going half the speed you'd have most likely noticed his flasher and had more time to slow down. I would never lane split quicker than 20-30km/h, being in the middle of two lanes with so many chances of that happening. Regardless of who was deemed at fault, use this as a learning experience and continuously improve those riding skills!
