looks legit to me.

Thanks for the feedback to both Racer X and Tmax.

I didn't even realize sometimes I will split through 2 cars at 50+ until watching back the footage. With that said I don't feel like I did anything crazy at the time and it felt fine to me. I'll try to pay more attention to my actual speedo cause to be honest unless I see a cop I'm usually just going off feel.

So by all means encourage him by telling him "ride your own ride". That's the most toxic phrase used in this forum. It's such a cop-out. Typical "ride your own ride" comversation:

"Driving 80mph through a 35mph blind turn, while crossing the center line no less, is really dangerous for you and also for innocent people"
"hey ride your own ride bro"

No, "riding your own ride". Ride responsibly. If you're not putting other people at risk, do all the dumb you want, but using the phrase "ride your own ride" to encourage risky behavior on public roadways is toxic.

Ok here's a twist for those who say they will never lane share. This happens to me ALL the time when riding in the sticks and I take it as a most courteous and appreciated gesture.

Double lane roadway with no passing zone. The semi, farm vehicle, truck with trailer, car, etc. traveling ahead of you at speed limit or slightly under pulls as far over to the right as they can encouraging you to pass them but not slowing down or stopping. Sometimes they have a nice wide shoulder, sometimes narrow, sometimes gravel. So if you pass them you are either lane sharing or crossing the center line in a no passing zone. Illegal? technically yes. Does everybody do it and think nothing of it? majority yes even those who don't admit they lane split. If you don't pass them you're even in a worse situation as before as them riding the shoulder is spewing up road hazards all over you.

Also similar road and the vehicle ahead of you is stopped waiting to turn left. Do you pass them on the right to get around? You can either be sharing the single lane when doing this or driving on the PAVED shoulder. I do whenever possible with car or bike and it is is 100% legal and even specifically addressed in the DPS driving manual. Technically this is also lane sharing though.

So my point is many lane share without admitting it or even realizing it. Both of the above situations are accepted, considered normal driving by the majority and are safe to do. Now we just need to get other types of lane sharing considered normal so people will not feel you're breaking the law, jumping ahead of them and will be looking out for these possible actions by bikes. Lane splitting/sharing is much safer when all traffic has their eyes open for it proactively.

I think splitting lanes is much safer than going 80 in a 35 center line or not. Haha

I think the part of your ride at the 45/610 interchange was a good example of responsible lane sharing/splitting. Other times during your ride where you split at 50-60-70 was a bad example and why people get irked when bikes filter between them. If traffic is moving 30-40 mph why split ... leave earlier. If traffic is stop and go logical time to split to avoid a rear end collision by someone.

Stay safe ... good video of things to do and not do IMO. I think it would be great to start a following of videos showing responsible lane splitting to show it works may influence the law makers. Laws usually do not change unless they idiots in the offices are show it works ... even if that means bending the laws a little. Just would have to keep the videos free of over the limit and things that would be negatively impact the cause.

This is an ignorant comment. I drive a diesel with a full trailer almost everyday for work. Not because I don't want to be on a bike, but because my welder does not fit anywhere. My leads are a bit too much for a backpack... Everyone has a different situation. I think the lane splitting makes complete since for red lights and very low speeds. I can't guarantee you anything when some on these gusts of wind we get hits the side of my truck and I suddenly hug the line for a brief moment. Not to mention these semis. You bust my windshield up for it, the ride most definitely would get exciting.

I split all the time. I'm real careful about it though.

Couple years ago, I was going to work on 288 on my R6 and was riding in the shoulder (traffic was bumper to bumper) and a Expedition pulled to the left in attempt to cut me off. Luckily there was more than enough space for me to still go around them. There really are some crazy drivers out there.
