Lane Splitting???

I was riding home in my ///M coming back from a BBQ on Sunday. The traffic on I45S (close to FM517) was extremely heavy when a gixxer pulled up next to me. I knew he wanted to get infront of me so I backed off and gave him room. He got in and then decided to lane split the SUV infront of me and the car in the fast lane and continued to do so. However when he did that he scared the person in the SUV and they jammed on their brakes... Thankfully I anticipated everything and backed off a few lengths.

I thought lane splitting was illegal in Texas? Why on earth would someone want to risk their life like that? Sorry but I guess I don't understand... Maybe I am not experienced enough to...

ive seen cars get mad at bikes who are lane splitting, so they pull towards the dotted line to block their passage.

Oops I forgot to add that traffic although heavy was flowing at 65-70mph.

I guess I am just cause I don't want to wreck my baby over something so completely dumb.
