Anybody Ride 610 like this?

Sup, guys.

New here.

Here is a video of me a few months ago. My bike was out of commission for a while, and now I'm finally riding again after three months.

I'm curious to see if there are any other lane splitters out there, because I don't ever see them!

wow man, its kinda neat, but dangerous. I like the idea of the ability to pull next to a car in front of me at a light for protection. Be careful with the houston drivers, they hop into lanes without notice

Scaaaaaaaary, omg, stop doing that. Please!

Cars tend to scooch to the left (and right) to see how far traffic up traffic is backed up. One lil bump and youll be squished!

Not sure on the legality aspect.

A cop pulled me over in Missouri city on my way to Galveston traveling thru hwy 6 busting through very heavy traffic.

I only received a citation for "Unsafe Lane Change."

Taking it to court to see where I stand.

Anyway, I'm calling it a night.

May your commutes never be boring!

Lane splitting is legal on California only. If I were you, I'd take this video down otherwise some overzealous cop one day gets a hold of it to use as evidence of your reckless riding.

Only legal in California and judging by your video, that speed would not even have been legal in California (split only when traffic is 15mph or less).
For your own sake, don't do it in Houston.

There is really no danger in that. Odds are slim to none

Seriously, who rides a bike and doesn't break at least one law every time they ride.

There are lots of things that are legal in California that aren't legal here. You don't get cited for doing thoses things, only for getting caught.
