    i never lane split...only because i don't go "there" (roads which might make it possible/traffic which makes it desireable)....but another added piece of advice might be "look at their heads". cagers usually (not always) do a head twitch/turn just before they change lanes (into you).

    ps. and don't ride (or let "them" get you) mad no matter what "they" do or you might be the one doing something stupid....

    I'd like to see the law from Californicate that specifically states motorcycles "splitting or sharing lanes with automobiles" is actually legal

    this was mulled about a while ago elsewhere and my reading on it boiled down to this

    it's not actually legal but the wording doesn't actually make it illegal

    seems they had a provision specifically addressing it and removed it. hmmmm......

    quote:- always split commercial trucks on the left...
    Smarter words were never spoken, as far as I'm concerned. I hate it when people pass my truck on the left, especially motorcycles. Folks don't know how invisible they can be. Besides, it only makes it that much harder for the trucker to get back into the right hand lane.

    caferacer.net needs to REPRESENT.

    i am spreading the word via the dealerships in my territory.

    should be EPIC!

    CoOhVinmoto is there. We got a space in the fuggin SHADE, just a hop, skip and jump from the toilets that FLUSH.

    Anybody else gonna be there Thursday night?

    And on topic: the only lane splitters I've ever seen in Ohio are squids (and they're just showing off). Guess we just don't have that aggro approach to traffic like you East coasters. Our driving habits are more passive/aggressive in fly-over country.
