I actually enjoyed watching that video. The most I have ever lane split was maybe 10 cars or so because I was in a hurry. Other than that I never do it.

the only lane splitting you have ever read me saying I did was at the RR crossing on federal road between market st. and the tunnel when traffic was backed up and at a stop and you will also note that I said it was back in the days when lane splitting in that situation was legal... you could not go down the side of the road, but you could ride up the middle then... laws here in texas were different 40+ years ago and there is a huge difference in the action and the consequences, by the way it was not popular with cagers even back then and occasionally tempers would flare and on occasion some cage would see you coming and open his door while stopped so you could not get thru... one of the reasons they made it illegal altogther and i was 16 to 18 at the time and just as stupid as the op here is...the only other thing i will do is slide up beside a car at red lights to keep from being run over from the rear

When I lived in California, I lane split all the time. But then again, per law you could out there. And because of that, drivers were more aware of possible lane splitting. However, Here in Houston, people aren't used to lane splitting, they're not looking out for it. They jump lanes like crazy around here. I used to do it here until one day someone jumped lanes while I was next to them and knocked me to the ground. After that, no more lane splitting for me. With the exception at the occasional red light.

Well Kid, Ride Your Own Ride. My opinion is as always: I encourage, I don't nag. Ride what you want, where you want, how you want, wear what you want to.

I will try to shine the figurative flashlight down the path you're choosing.

Ever watch the news and see something like "...police tracked down the suspect after they bragged about their crime on Facebook..."? So far I don't think the Po-po is seeking out videos for traffic violations but I'd guess that the day is coming, and soon.

Also, police aren't always in their cruisers: they drive personal vehicles and wear t-shirts too sometimes. I've been ticketed because of an off-duty fellow who called my description in. It'll ruin your day when you're stopped on I-10 because someone on 610 radio'ed you in, and you had no idea.

Also as mentioned there's all kinds of people out there. People who are dickheads in real life are the same behind the wheel. The number of people who are on the phone, texting, eating, singing, or critically distracted is staggering. There is no shortage of aggressive drivers. Mentally handicapped people are real too, and often have a driver's license. People who are drunk and high are out there too.

Squeezing inbetween these idiots with maybe inches to spare is just asking for it.

On one final note, people form patterns in their perception. They see one motorcycle doing something they don't think is right (no matter how your fellow riders see it), and they're that much closer to thinking that "all motorcyclists are idiots and deserve for bad things to happen." That makes my ride, and everyone else's, that much more dangerous.

So do whatcha want, good luck, ride safe, don't get caught. Peace.
