    This is normal, he should have overtaken behind.

    Bro, you guys are riding in a convoy manner right? Taxi want to turn left but you guys are occupying the entire middle lane, so he die die have to find a spot to cut in. Can't blame the taxi driver.

    Frankly speaking I know why your friend is keeping to the left, but by doing so he's actually sending a confusing signal as if he's inviting ppl to cut into his lane. It's the similar case as car when we see a car starts keeping left we will assume he's going to lane change to the left.

    Wow! How'd you film that? With one of those portable cameras mounted cameras? Could you recommend me the brand and the model?

    Nonetheless, I think it's a little too close for comfort.

    Sorry bro. By right you should let him through since he already indicated, at least he cut in to your lane slowly.

    So side swiping someone is alright as long you indicated it, way in advance?
    Anyone can ride a bike. Being a biker, is a state of mind.

    its not alright but for your case, 3 or 4 bikes in staggered formation means u guys should be in convoy. whether izzit courtesy or defensive riding, you should slow down and let it pass. its signalling for like at least 30m long.

    if its cutting in shoving u guys and yet go straight, im sure all bros here would agreed with u and f**ed the taxi driver upside down liao.

    and yea i've experienced even worst shoving that i need jam brakes at 100km/hr and to my horror that driver gancheong panic when some bloody BMW tailgate and HID spotlight it and the taxi chooses to squeeze in cut in my lane which is 2 car length from my front fork. its a close shave but oh well, we're riders so suck thumb.

    Well say Jonny, No doubt you have perfect judgement. Rather than Mr right far from my right. You have at least more than 6 years experience on the road from what I see. Practise courtesy and polite, making the road a better place to ride. Respect I believe all will agree with you instead.

    A motorcycle on the road is as good as a car on the road.
    taxi driver wouldn't have done so if its a car instead.
