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.

  2. Comments like that enrage me. I don't like it when the dj goes out for lunch and legally walks across the street. Maybe we should run him over when he does. I ran a poll on lane splitting. It's the third one down. Here is the link: http://www.monkeymeter.com/polls/poll_results_2005.php

  3. Interesting! Seen from Europe it seems you guys start to get in the same shit we learn to swin in here on the other side of the Atlantic!
    In Germany you get very nasty glances from the drivers (especially truck drivers) but in France it becomes very interesting as they get police bikers on non police bikes to slow down the riders driving between slow car lanes...to catch them later with real police cars/bikes! Just acting like sheppards!
    Life as a biker is not that easy that is why we like to share our best moments on our corporate BLOG !
