In a week or two I am going to make a Video of splitting lanes in heavy LA traffic...It will may scare the hell out of you or make you wonder if I am totally suicidal...but there are those who split it even faster as you will see... Have you ever gotten car paint on your bike...or more likely had a mirror to mirror INCIDENT I will post it somewhere where you can all go to look but not sure the webpolice will allow posting the sight address it will most likely be at and the all too fromiliar need I say more.... By the way, the pic shown is not my intellectual property...just wanted to show a lane split pic...and its not me

Irrational Fear? I am keeping my cute butt in one piece there SS. And you think a man would drop me because I make sense? Hmmm, you may have a point there...but ya don't. And no, I can use big words too. Skullduggery is.....quaint. Adorable. Let's play scrabble. I will get the biggest words, you will get the points. But I will still win. And for your info...I saw it again today! Some yo yo decided to just get in the car pool lane when the fancy took him and low and behold..a bike was right there!! Nearly creamed him. I will admit it can be fun, at the right time, but that 12% argument does not fly. SS, you are dealing with a woman. We have that 6th sense. Anyway. I don't want to talk about it anymore. We shall agree to disagree. Okey dokey?? Just ride safe. T

I love it when I can get in behind a CHP that is spiltting lanes cuz then the cars don't even mess with ya. Although you ALWAYS have to be weary when splitting lanes. They just don't go fast enough for me. I can make up lots of time, save heat on the motor, and get there faster. And I ride a bagger. And, no, I don't split lanes when traffic is going fast enough to keep air flowing over the motor, about 40 or so mph. I think the law is 35mph.

I am not saying .Get stupid with it. Just enough to get through traffic. Don't know if you have ever got stuck in 3MPH traffic on a summer day in Florida. It will kill ya. Not to mention it doesn't do the scoot much good. In FL. they get rilled if you pull up to the front at a traffic light. In Ca. its expected

SS, would I kid a kid? NOOOO...we have waaaaaaaaaaay too many BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD drivers here. Remember, we are still the land of golden opportunity (choke) so a HUGE percentage of our drivers don't even speak English.Nor Read it. I have nothing against people coming here for a better life, do not misunderstand me. But, the truth is..They suck at driving. For instance..there is a certain nationality that starts to get on the freeway and stops dead just as the onramp merges. Countless times that has happened. And, not just the newcomers. Cali drivers are very spoiled. They cross that carpool lane when ever the mood strikes them. Have seen too many accidents, I shudder to think if it were a bike getting crushed between the cars. Yes I know, you take your chances. I like high speed, just not in between untrustworthy idiot drivers. Hey, I am too old to die young. F that.

I miss doing that. Its part of why I ride. no traffic jams,no parking problem. When I was in Calif. EVERYBODY did it.No big deal. I Florida, people flip out. I mean they get really upset. call the cops on their cell phones and such. And the cops REALLY don't like it. Oh well,at least we don't have a helmet law.

Sideways, I have always thought that would be good idea here in LA because there is just no rome to add more lanes in many places...you go bro!!! Right ON!!!

Hi Spunk, I think that is a great idea. I personally think lane splitting is asinine at high speeds. Not a big fan of it period. Too many stupid people out there, especially in the car pool lanes!!!!!!!!!!
