Sry for double post, but cannot find the edit button right now.

This video is what I consider to be a triple a rider. AAA+

This is the best video I've seen so far.

It's not lane splitting that's dangerous, it's being an idiot. That'll always get you in the end.

Huh?

I can't really tell what you're trying to say here about lane splitting on 610. Grammar works well when trying to get your point across in typed text - perhaps a few more commas and semicolons, or periods.

Also, formulating a thought and keeping your paragraph on topic would help a little, too.

Oh, you're a hater? Nevermind.

This isn't CA and TX drivers aren't used to lane splitting. The OP's video shows him splitting when there's space for a driver to change lanes. just sayin'

the short bus will have more than one on it, not being alone in what you do does not mean it is the smart thing to do.

Just my opinion
man i do not generally take things personal, it is the internet...
in this case my way is the right way... lane splitting in california is a whole different game than lane splitting here... there it is legal, there the cagers are used to it... here it is very danerous and down right stupid, as much because of the cagers as the rider,,, and it is against the law... and if goes wrong no matter if the cager does something stupid like panic from your unexpedted move and causes a wreck... you get the ticket and the blame... lane splitting here earns you a spot on the short bus...the reality is here in texas lane splitting makes the lane splitter wrong... i have over 47 years of riding experience and have seen most everything that can happen, happen..i have lost many family and friends while riding... and i could eat it tomorrow.... when i say lane splitting is stupid, it is not just an opinion, it is the reality of riding in texas..

In CA do they teach the cagers that motorcycles can lane split so you would be aware of them doing that? Or is it just legal to lane split and the cagers still really don't know. On the + side so many people moving hear from CA that more of the drivers should be aware of it.

maybe i am just old, maybe i have lost my sense of humor... but several times i have seen folks post that what the rider does is his right... this old man calls bullshit...
if you are on your own property you can ride like you want and no matter how risky, it would indeed be your right...but on a public road riding in a way that is against the law, a way that puts other folks in danger IS NOT YOUR RIGHT...it is selfish and stupid, and i have to admit that everytime i see someone do that i pray that they get busted and get the largest fine possible...if it were not unsafe, i would get out my cell phone and call it in...but then again if you go the it is there right to ride like they want i guess you think it is my right to take my attention off the road and use that phone to call it in...

I dont feel he has the right to im mean it is illegal but its not my place to tell him hey quit it.
I dont always ride "legally" i dont think anyone does not always.
I have texted and drove before. not saying its right.
but i feel how he rides IS his buisness its between him and the law. and i aint the law

well, we all have choices, even choices that are not our right, choices that violate the rights of others, choices that are stupid and earn us a ride a on the short bus...and as citizens if we sit back and say we are not the law...we become part of the problem...if we do not condemn actions like this, then the morons continue being morons because they think it is cool, they think we are impressed instead of disgusted.... if social pressure from the rider community is not brought to bear, then this continues because the law can not catch them all....i feel that you are not the law, as i am not, but we have a civic duty to at least verbally condemn these type of actions and refuse to befriend and ride with folks who behave this way...

we sir have a difference of opinion...
i would ride with this person not saying i would keep up do to lack of lane splitting.
so op from keep up what ever makes you happy.
many years ago we KNEW the world was flat it was a crime to say otherwise.
people performed their CIVIC DUTY by ousting the people who said it wasnt..
