No. My argument is that you cannot justify going into a more dangerous position under the pretense that it mitigates another risk, particularly when the risk from remaining in the first position is far less likely than the consequences associated with your new position. That's like climbing above the parapet in front of a load of machine gunners, in case someone in your trench slips and stabs you with their bayonet. Moreover, this is a new rider thread, where people are advocating that everyone filter right to the front and then blaze away as fast as possible in order to (hopefully, but with no guarantee) beat whatever vehicle is leading, while assuming that every possible bike they might have is capable of such... This advice is irresponsible, retarded, dangerous and I would call Troll, but I get the impression it's actually being spoken seriously... All I hope is that such people ride WELL the **** away from me if they ride like this!
