No surprise to anyone paying attention but it’s not all rainbows and sunshine when it comes to laws and motorcycles. Do some traffic laws actively increase your risk factor instead of minimizing it?

To answer some common questions on the first one: Crashing due to failure to turn your ABS back ON requires a rider to: 1.) Disable it in the first place, which beginners rarely do. 2.) Forget one’s settings when rejoining the pavement, despite the obvious visual and tactile reminders that the surface has changed. 3.) Fail to notice the bright orange (ABS) light on the dash, which is another (more sensible) requirement of UNGTR 3 whenever ABS is disabled. And 4.) apply the brakes poorly enough to crash. All this requires a level of incompetence so high that it is actually less common. On the flip side, crashing due to failure to turn your ABS back OFF is easy. Off-roaders stop their bikes all the time - to consult a map, to chat with other riders, or simply because they stalled or tipped over. It’s common to quickly restart the bike and forget that ABS has automatically re-armed itself. There are no external reminders because the riding surface hasn’t changed, and the dash warning lights are now unlit (off-roaders rarely look at the dash anyway, since they are typically standing). On top of all this, no amount of braking skill can prevent a crash when ABS is working against you. My conclusion is that the law is poor, because it serves an unlikely level of incompetence at the cost of causing averagely-competent riders to crash. Most ADV folks will tell you that it has happened to them. Bear in mind that this does not affect the vast majority of motorcycles, which do not have switchable ABS in the first place. ~RF9

@Sean Ahearne I totally concur wih you. I've never felt like pushing my own braking in the wet as it's scary, even with ABS (it is quite an unsettling feeling to feel like you're falling to a stop). But now thinking about it even practice in the wet at 75% would save both of us from little to no braking or too much braking! It's definitely on my next to-do thing before my next ride in the rain. On your Bonneville have you tried sintered HH brake pads? That's what I have on my sport bikes and they've never felt wooden, cold or hot!

@FlameHazeist I don't doubt it, but it's one thing doing it in a parking lot and another doing it on the road in the wet when you aren't expecting it or doing it as an exercise. Getting a face full of car body and a bit adrenaline shot definitely reduced my ability to brake effectively too. It was also on an old Bonneville with a single disc which is a bit wooden at the best of times 😅

@Sean Ahearne You'd be surprised actually! I've been practicing the MotoJitsu belt drills and I can do 5.25 m from 25 mph on my VFR800 and a little more than that on my R1, both on sport touring tires and in a dusty parking lot. The MotoJitsu guy can do it in under 4.57 m on his R1200GS on clean pavement so you definitely could have saved a lot of $$$!

@FlameHazeist Ordinarily I would agree, but in this case I had 30mph to scrub off over about 5 metres, which wasn't going to happen whatever I was riding; particularly since the driver in question did spot me as they pulled out and also panic braked, parking across the middle of the lane. I'm glad I came off the bike in this instance even though it occured due to my own poor braking technique.

I agree with everything except the filtering thing... People don't know how to filter properly and it is relying on the assumption that traffic WILL NOT start moving BEFORE the biker reaches the front of the traffic. 4 different bikers have smacked into my rear view mirror as I was parked at a light and they tried to filter by... None of them so much as waved to apoligize. The other issue is when traffic does start moving, the cars up front have almost no idea that a biker is rolling up extremely close on their side because they are paying attention the light and traffic, and thus if they sway from their lane even a little bit... SMACK goes the motorcycle that was probably then just speeding up for the same light the car was. I can go on but ultimately that is the only thing that seems more like something cyclists just want to do, no something that is ACTUALLY safer to do. So quit being selfish and wait your fuckin turns like everyone else has too.
Eric Gray
Eric Gray Acum 4 Zile
Combine this with the fact that a motorcycle can and OFTEN DOES stop faster then most cars, and combine all of THAT with the Chads of the world in the car that the biker just filtered past... and think of this... That Chad is probably gonna be a bit ticked that the biker just gets to cruise through the light HE WAS first at... so the Chad will drive faster to tailgate the biker cause he is angry about the biker being in front of him... then the biker goes to brake for the next light and the Chad driving angrily, and way too fast behind the biker that just pissed him off... will hit the biker. It is just creating potential road rage, and a multitude of situations most car drivers aren't thinking of.

I don't support mandates for technology. I agree that anyone who doesn't want ABS brakes should be allowed to turn them off or purchase a bike without them and use their braking technique they learned in the 70's, just like me. But the statistics are clear, bikes with ABS are involved in over 30% less fatal crashes. Even the most experience rider is less likely to lose control in a panic situation with ABS brakes. This is especially true in wet conditions. Ride on.

Australian here, - filtering is legal here. One caveat with legal filtering is the pressure to launch from the front after you successfully filtered to the front. Car drivers get shitty if you slowly take off, forcing you to launch fairly quickly once the light goes green. This putting you in another danger, people who run reds.

If filtering is illegal where you live and you don't want to be rear ended in a line of stopped traffic, simply stop behind the last car but well over to one side or the other so you can see along the side of said car. You haven't gone past it so it's not filtering but if the moron behind you fails to stop where he should and encroaches into your space or even slams the car in front, the crash happened next to you, not on you. You get to ride away. You're still in the line of traffic rather than out front, but you get to ride away.

Left vs. right...there IS an option. Presuming there is no oncoming traffic, get as far to the center as possible when beginning the actual turn to increase the turning radius and extend the line of sight. This actually comes from law enforcement training. Motorcyclists typically try for a perfect execution of a turn...single apex, but law enforcement found 2 or more apex turns to be better in less than ideal conditions (not on a controlled track or road with perfect visibility through the turn).

there's one thing in the name of safety that should never under any circumstances be done, it's half-automating something. want to make sure people don't leave their abs off while going back on road? make a more advanced abs that can deal with low friction surfaces, or make a more advanced detection system that automatically turn it off and on based on the terrain. making any sort of auto-on without the auto-off is actively causing people to forget it and be careless. because it not only divide by two the number of times you have the opportunity to check and as such build a good habit, it straight up remove from you the ability to doubt yourself and wonder about your current settings. it may seems like it's a good thing because you can't misremember your settings, it's always in the default state until you change it, but it's actually the opposite, instead of asking yourself what mode you're using and having the obvious answer "i didn't change it since start so it's abs on", you don't ask yourself any question because there's no room for it. a pretty stupid example of that happened in the game league of legends. one of the roles (jungler) in a team imply that you must take a specific spell (smite) to fill it, but it's basically useless outside of that role. the game always load your last choices by default during your character selection including said spells, so if last time you where at the jungler role, you would have smite selected. now a couple years back they added a function to the game that would automatically replace your spell with smite when you're playing jungler. never people have forgot to change their spells between games as much as since then. even more ridiculous, most people won't forget to change when they go from one of other roles to another (so anything outside of that jungler and smite thing) because they are still expected to pick certain spells depending of their roles, but still forget to swap when they played jungler last game and play another role now.

Filtering being illegal is a good law and I rode for decades. There is simply no safe way to weave between traffic at any speed - especially as time has moved forward and SUV's have become more and more popular. Not to mention there are vehicles on the road like semi-trailers who naturally take up more room and cars and trucks pulling smaller trailers. There just isn't enough extra room, even when you add up the extra room in both lanes. If cars are in gridlock, no one expects a motorcycle to drive past significantly faster than everything else is moving - and I put bicycles in the same category whom its illegal for as well. Plus, another reason for filtering being illegal is that because the driver is not in the center of the car, not everyone is keeping the car perfectly centered in the lane. This isn't a race track, its a public road with a bell curve of driver skills, awareness, experience and familiarity. You have people driving new cars they are unfamiliar with, people who are lost and/or unfamiliar with the area looking for a gas station or where they are supposed to pick someone up. As an aware motorcyclist, I looked for the cars behind me not slowing down coming up to an intersection and would slow down a bit more gradually, pumping the breaks and weaving just a hair to make sure the driver behind me is paying attention. There are lots of ways for a good motorcyclist to avoid some of these things. Finally, because most of the vehicles on the road are of the 4-wheeled variety, debris tends to accumulate in the gutters....but also around the edges of the lane. Blowing a tire when you are moving at 20 mph only a foot or two away from cars on either side is a bad place to dump. Furthermore, how many times did you spot debris in the lane at the last minute and had to jog to the side to avoid it? If I'm filtering between cars, there is no place for me to go. There are many many good reasons for this law and while some, such as creator above site suggest that the biggest reason is likely that no car driver wanting someone else to "get ahead of them" as motivation for keeping the law, you also have motorcyclists who may want the law to change just so they can avoid heavy traffic and say nanner nanner to the car drivers in the on-going passive aggressive war between 4 and 2 wheeled motorists.... but saying this doesn't make it so and I have yet to see a study saying that either has been proven by even a casual survey. .

So, laws should be written assuming people are intelligent, "the safest place for ABS is wherever the rider put it", then in the next segment bikes should be allowed to filter because otherwise stupid drivers will hit them...All bikers are smart and all drivers are dumb? But then you point out lane splitting is stupid...so NOT all bikers are smart. Laws HAVE to be written for the lowest level of intelligence. They have to account for the type of driver that tweets, and the type of rider that splits lanes.

I dont know how it is in other Countrys but in Germany filtering is illegal but its getting tolerated. As long as you dont crash or are driving like a douchebag no one is gonna stop you. Also if its like 35 Degrees outside and your in a traffic jam you are allowed to filter because it would be dangerous for you to sit there in the sun in full gear.

1:45 I understand your logic, however I completely disagree with it. Instead, I would advise you to make "grabbing the brakes from low speed shortly after setting out to see what happens" part of *your* system for hooning around on loose surfaces. That will highlight other faults with the brakes, and you may find the surface was more or less grippy than you first thought. It's standard advice for any vehicle after driving through water, or working on your brakes, so isn't an alien concept. If you are prone to switching your engine off and on a lot, put a label next to the neutral indicator reminding you. I'd also argue that the forgetful rider who forgets to switch ABS back on will be doing so on a public road, surrounded by other people. The forgetful rider who forgets to switch ABS off will be doing so in a place he's unlikely to hurt anyone but himself.

I put this up there with things like grinder guards, traction control,machine guards. people will say "well im not an idiot" so its fine but it only takes that moment to mess up and cause serious harm. I have seen many people who have barely been driving and because they think going fast on the motorway and drag racing their mates around mcdonalds they are pro drivers asking how to permanently disable traction control "BECAUSE ITS ANNOYING". If you want it off you have the option to turn it off every trip but it should never ever be like a light switch on or off. ABS saves way more people than the annoyance of holding a button, plus saves beginners who get too confident for their skills (we have all been there)
