Lane Splitting - Getting Home is a Shared Responsibility

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Lane Splitting - Getting Home is a Shared Responsibility

Well done CHP! Just wish more states were like that. In Alabama you would end up in someone's front seat when they opened the door. That is one of a few things I actually do miss about California (the great roads and weather together is another).

Re: Lane Splitting - Getting Home is a Shared Responsibility

Nice, hoping to see some more good videos over here... we go legal with lane "filtering" - not "splitting" - in NSW on 1 July.
There's a bunch of info and the only "video" so far here. The video is a pretty lame animation though.....

Re: Lane Splitting - Getting Home is a Shared Responsibility

The DMV has actually put a # on the speed in the handbook, 38 mph. That was last year and I haven't looked if that has changed as of lately. I'll admit that I've split on the HWY's here up to probably 50 mph and didn't think to much as I felt it was in a safe manner.

I lived in a few other states with no lane splitting and it was dreadful sitting in traffic.

Re: Lane Splitting - Getting Home is a Shared Responsibility

I tried it last year's visit
Still felt a bit insecure. Cause always in the back of my mind I think of drivers back home throwing something out the window, opening a door or any other foolish idea. And naturally you don't want to learn a habit that does you no good in home state. I guess CHP really care.
ride safe
