HSF - High Speed Filtering.....

I expect to get flamed here, but this is a particular section I do at about 20mph, off the gas, just riding..... :smile: oh and scanning the cars way in front.....:smile:

The left, right then left at the end was done a lot slower than the other day..... :sad:

PS don't try this at home....... Professional Crash Test Dummy here ! :biggrin:

If you are filtering at high speed you really have to have your wits about you, although I do regularly filter past traffic at 20. Although I did high speed filtering once with speeds of 40 (I was riding a motorbike) and ended up having a ride in an ambulance.

One other thing that I don't think has been mentioned about filtering, watch out for drivers who decide to switch lanes at the last moment.

I have, and it's not funny - wished I was on the MTB - yesterday it was completely loose, this morning I had the width of a wheel to ride in....:smile:
