“While a lot of bikers would like the ability to do that, Houston drivers are unpredictable. They don’t use their turn signals. They are more erratic in their driving,” he explained.


Wow, the OP want to defame Outlaw Dave over this statement without even knowing wtf he is talking about, and then cry out for everyone to call OD and his business that has been nothing but good for and to the MC community here, pathetic.

Tiller, how about you act like an adult and invite OD to an open discussion on the matter, maybe see what he meant by his comments, because when I read it, I see a man concerned about the safety of motorcyclists.

Same thing with splitting, people still do it already even though its illegal
Yup, so I guess we don't need a splitting law

What arguments against splitting have you heard that were not citing safety of motorcyclists?

It is the same old against splitting we always hear.

I see a lot of comments about erratic drivers and not using their signals. IMO, these are completely invalid. The bills state in stopped traffic and/or traffic that is moving 20 mph or below. I haven't seen very many people change lanes when there is a car directly beside them. , it's pretty impossible. Signals don't mean , because they aren't changing lanes anyways

Agreed, but my comments were directed at the OP for a total knee-jerk reaction to comments taken out of context by Outlaw Dave, not the grounds for lane-splitting itself.

How is it taken out of context? He is against the lane splitting legislative efforts. What context is needed?

I do not see anywhere there that states he is opposed to it, just stating a fact about Houston drivers.

Again, the OP was out of line calling for everyone to call his business and "give him an earfull", when he is always available, and I bet would welcome some folks on his show to discuss it.

Out of context? He's against it....
Let me get this straight, he hosts some moto meets and we can't disagree with his comments. He's been a dumbass his whole career. I don't see his comments being pro motorcycling at all..

The bit right before you started quoting dude.

That gives his overall opinion, the bit you quoted gives the reasoning. I'm sure he would love tons of calls to his show, most radio shows would love that attention. You aren't claiming context, you are claiming a misquote but his position is obvious.

I was stating the actual quote, not the article's author writing of "Even OD thinks its a bad idea"

Everyone is entitled to their opinion....

Gotta agree with OD. I've lived in SoCal and would lane split there. Here... especially Houston? I won't say never but, even if it becomes legal, I'd definitely think twice before doing it each time.

Here in H-town, in more than one instance, a cager started to move into my lane, saw that I'm in their path, and continue to move towards me. The look in the driver's eyes is one of minor annoyance: "why da heck are you still in my way?" I could get all up and at arms about those instances, but at the end of the day, going home in one piece is wayyyy more important. Best thing is to learn from the bike messengers that survive NYC traffic...



You just give it gas, and as soon as the threat disappears in you rear view mirror, you let the event disappear from your mind, and go about your business trying to survive the nest one.
