i agree wholeheartedly, jeffeljeffe said:I don't know if it makes you a better driver overall, but it sure the hell makes you much more aware of motorcyclists than the average schmuck driving with a cell phone to their ear.
I've gotten so used to it that I also have to catch myself from automatically moving over into the carpool lane when I'm alone in my cage! Very frustrating losing the freedom of that extra lane when traffic gets heavy.hdf said:... we lane split most of the time and I often find myself "shooting for the gap" in the car before I realise that I'm in a cage and it ain't gonna fit between the Renault and the school bus...but it does require my attention from time to time.
I disagree. I was a perfect cage driver before I bought My K12RS.messenger13 said:I don't know about any scientific studies, but I don't think you'll find a rider that doesn't agree with you.
I suspect that for every one of us who takes riding seriously enough to improve our skills, there are an equal number of squids out there who actually become WORSE or more DANGEROUS cage drivers because of all of the crap they get away with on their bikes. From the insurance company perspective, the net effect is that it probably all zero's out in the long run.DaveTheAffable said:...If we can prove this, shouldn't we all get a rate reduction in our cage insurance? :thumb:
