Yesterday morning, a San Francisco-based morning radio show announcer told his listeners that he felt it was unfair for motorcyclists to split lanes in heavy traffic.

In California, it's not illegal to lane split.

So he called for drivers to open their doors when they see a biker splitting the lane, coming up from behind.

Several bikers expressed their anger at the announcer on a Bay Area motorcycle forum.

Interestingly, immediately after calling for Jihad against bikers, his show cut to commercial which happened to be a spot for a local Yamaha dealership. The dealer learned about the announcer's remarks, and placed calls to the radio station, spoke with station manager, and got them to announce an on-air apology.

Thanks to fellow biker Hyrise for letting us know.
