thats kind of the whole point on why to do it? Did you watch the video?

Ever heard of the law of attraction or read about Dr. Masaru Emoto's work on structuring water with thoughts and words?

I think it definitely applies out on the road.

Most probably don't know it's legal, and some know it's legal and don't really care. They have no idea what it's like being in 90+ degree weather, wearing a leather jacket, and stuck in traffic while they're in a nice air conditioned car. All they're thinking is if they're not going forward, no one else should.

Did some lane splitting in Cali back in june. I like it. The problem I would have with it is some people splitting traffic at high speeds. You would run out of options real fast. I think the one they wanted to pass here would only allow lane splitting at 20 mph or lower. I think that would be ok personally.

It sure was nice to split lanes getting out of San Francisco at rush hour. I would have been sitting in traffic all afternoon. And the people did see you coming and a lot of them would move for you.

Not my experience. Most don't notice, and some even crowd the lane to stop you from getting by.

Yes you do get that. Happened to me on 610, a truck cut my opening off, but I grew up riding in CA so I went around him the other way. I will always lane share unless in a group of riders. I don't want to put them at risk not knowing their experience and what they are comfortable with.
