I can't follow this thread, But... Splitting is as safe as the rider Rider pays intense attention to All details, and that rider is safe.
Pitty the rider that stays in a lane (between bumpers).

Not at all. Just a simple law allowing two wheels to share a lane leaving it to the rider to determine safety factors.

Witnesses said it took him about 10 minutes to actually die after hitting the ground. Nice day in the park for the kiddies. Sad, but that crap happens a lot because the squids haul ass and blaze through cage traffic causing wrecks. Ever been given a haircut by a dumbfuck doing 150mph past you in your car? It startles the crap out of you.
I think the restricted bikes with all the electronics are just the beginning of the end. License restrictions are coming, at the very least. Way too many incidents on superbikes for Mother Goose to keep ignoring.
You don't ride. I ride all the time and often never see a moto or when I do they're double on a hog/wing. What really bothers me is that political Marxist-fascists read your comment and love your wide doorway inviting Orwell.

My experience is the same as scout's. In fact I just did one of my 250-mile loops today, 120 miles of freeway, much of it intensely urban, 125 miles of national parks with almost no one on the road, all twists. Hardly saw a motorcycle, think I saw maybe six bikes on the whole 125 miles and maybe a couple of dozen (including my good friends the CHP and Sheriff motors) motorcycles on the freeways.

I rode into downtown Los Angeles for the heck of it the other day, hardly any bikes, I split lanes most of the way. Got behind some kind of a gigantic fat cruiser bike with an equally gigantic guy riding it, he cleared the way for me. I was on a CB1100 Honda, very narrow, great for splitting lanes. It was funny to watch this big tub of a bike clearing the cars by barely inches on each side. He left so much room in his wake two bikes like mine could have easily passed through.

And pretty much no one gave a rat's ass, many motorists moved over for us. np as scout says, or FAB as the Thunderbirds say.

Scout this might be the most ignorant thing Ive ever seen you post.
I don't ride??? LMAO!!! I ride almost every day. Usually 20-50 miles, all in the city. I see more dumbfuckery on bikes than I'd like to. And it isn't just sport bikes. Hardley-Ablesons with straight pipes going WOT making 60hp barely passing me at 75mph. People LOVE that.
Orwell? Ha! We are 100% full blown Orwellian right now my friend. Tele-screen in every room, on every device, wireless connected to the cloud. Big Brother IS watching, AND recording. Thought Police, Doublespeak, Newspeak, etc its ALL here in full swing. Arm yourself and make your peace.

You live in Cali where cager's are use to bikes lane splitting. In Arizona if you lane split someone will try to kill you. So in Arizona the cost to educate the cager's will be very high.

Well, at least you have less traffic, for the most part, and awesome roads.

I'm not saying that it is not a good law, it's just for states that have never had the law it would be problematic.
Lane splitting in Texas, for instance, is only illegal because there's a law on the books that no two vehicles can share the same lane at the same time. That's what I read last year when I was looking into it. So it's not that lane splitting is outlined as being illegal specifically, it's just to lane split you'd have to break another law. If Texas just dropped that law about lane sharing then lane splitting would be legal by proxy, not because there was a law saying we could do it but because by doing the act lane splitting we aren't breaking any other laws.

At low speed traffic or stopped at intersections, splitting is what I do. At normal posted speeds, no. Some do and some bikes will overtake with traffic oncoming at the same time expecting cars to pull over for them as they ride the center of the road. That I don't do or like. Recently a biker clipped a car doing this because he was impatient and pushing his luck with the space available. Came off and landed on the wrong side of the road in front of a van who stopped in time but the truck behind didn't. The truck carried the van over the riders body killing him.

Sad for the van driver and trucker. Never take cagers forgranted.
