    so, these are old shots. But I was lane splitting and got bumped. Unfortunately I was next to a big rig with dual rear axles. I ended up rubbing against the tires and getting some interesting marks on my crashbars and hard bag

    If that was me it wouldn't be the marks on the engine guards I'd have noticed.

    Lane split a truck?... Nope, nope, nope.

    We had a young bloke do same earlier this year down here... Not so lucky as you @Quik ...

    He simply became a stain in the bitumen... Not a retrievable part, just sponge work by the emergency services.
    Horrible.

    Things happen that change what you do, and don’t / won’t ever.
    Glad that you escaped and made it home.
