every sport has a in it.

well except lesbianism.. that is a sport . right?


actually i gotta say I didnt see anything that bad about it. he is is two wheels, not stuntin, and its not like he is kicking in doors (from what we can tell) just quickly getting through traffic. maybe a few cut-offs but its not like he stayed in that position for long.

That's crazy right there. It's only a matter of time before that dude eats it. Makes me wonder if he hasn't already.

I have to wonder that if lane splitting is legalized here in Texas if some will take advantage of it in this manner. What they are trying to pass right now is only if traffic is at 20mph or slower. I don't know what the law in California stipulates.

still I've seen some crazy lane splitting while visiting CA. most of it though was very courteous and carefully done. People are cool with it as long as they're accustomed to it and you're polite about it.
Yeah, he definitely sped it up. Look at the blinkers on some of the cars that were switching lanes, and you can easily see the blinker rates were double. And the sound of his exhaust was another giveaway.

Examples: Mini Cooper at 0:58, and another car at 1:18

15mph over the speed of traffic is legal in cali according to my uncle(live there). I split lanes but not like that guy. He's just asking for it imo.

Not being a safety police man...Just don't think that all too bright.

Your correct I lived in cali for over 7 years and never seen anyone lane split like that. traffic has to be at a stand still or not greater than 20... Now don't get me wrong I've had some Harley Davidsons almost make me drop my lit cigarette in my lap.. didn't see or hear them coming with the radio and the bass beating in the mustang gt....

I think it might help to flash your passing lights lol

Can motorcycle riders "split" lanes and ride between other vehicles?
Lane splitting by motorcycles is permissible but must be done in a safe and prudent manner.
