290 is barely wide enough for a Honda Civic, not sure how one would late split on it.

my zx7 navigates in between lanes pretty well and my mirrors stick out further than most newer bikes. keep practicing TMAX.

on the real, I think 30 mph is too high of a speed. 20 mph is more reasonable and probably safer. I don't lane split because I'm in a hurry. I lane split because my nuts start roasting and it's actually safer than sitting like a duck amongst cagers who can't spend 30-60 minutes in traffic without shoving there noses in their phones for facebook updates and whatever else.

I would have to ask if they feel the "No trucks in left lane" signs through Houston should be taken down, because they shouldn't get special privileges vs. trucks.

Idk I I think this one is is really a case by by case scenario kinda thing at least here in Houston cuz iv been cut off for this and other times iv had had drivers actually scoot over a lil so I could come through it needs to be legal so at least itll discourage some of the the driver's doing this in fear of of being at fault when the cops show

/ˈanˌdroid/
