driver education will play a big role in making it safer. but if someone has a problem wiht you they will have a problem whether you are in a cage or on a bike.tomacGTi said:Jersey drivers and lane splitting=suicide. Not that CA is much better, I chalk that up to Darwinism.
Even if it were legal: not this camper...

like i said, keep your head on a swivel. always look INSIDE the cars as you come up on them and take note of what they are doing. if you see them craning their neck to look at their side mirror then be extra careful when you approach and pass them. if they are inching closer to the inside of the lane be careful there as well. if they are having sex or lighting a spliff, stop and chat ;D
if i have tho shift our of first or put my shield down due to the wind (in summer) then i get back into traffic. about 25mph is the max for me too. that also happens to be just after i no longer have to slip the clutch to keep from stalling or lugging the engine.
