Passenger opens door in traffic

The motorbike in front is filtering. Watch the white van in the outside lane and the passenger door opening.

Do not attribute to malice...

...what could be explained by ignorance.

Looks to me more like the van passenger was trying to sort their door out (probably not closed properly).  yes they should have looked, but one must also consider that things like that could happen.

Riders seem to be filtering pretty quick if you ask me.

Filtering?

Filtering suggests moving slowly to the front of a queue of stationary traffic. Riding up the white line between lanes at speed is not filtering and the riders who do it take their chance. It's borderline illegal and even if it's not you are barmy to entrust your safety, as a rider, to other road users. If you do it's only a matter of time before one of them puts you in hospital. Take it from someone who did 125,000 miles in two years of despatching, it's not worth taking that kind of risk just to get to your destination a few minutes earlier and it gets a bad name for bikers in general.

Idiots!!!

I agree with what the others have said (apart from the hard man at the bottom) these total cunts are what give bikers a bad name. A lot of drivers see bikes as a nuisance and this is the reason why, they scare and surprise the other motorists by riding like pricks. I do a lot of miles and see a lot of things from drivers that scares the shirt out of me, people pulling out to overtake without checking their mirrors to one nob pulling out behind a 4x4 that was already overtaking a lorry and when the 4x4 pulled back in I nearly had a head on collision. That cunt had no way of seeing if the road was clear and if I was in my car it would have ended quite differently. My point is that you can never know what people are going to do, so don't risk your life by being a idiot.

Agreed. Both riders travelling too quickly for the conditions. Accidents waiting to happen.

 None of the videos show up on my iPad either. Must be the way they've set up the site. Shame.
