ahhh...lane splitting. one of the few luxuries that exist here in commi-fornia.

Does anyone know the legal limits of lane splitting?
http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/PrintLaws.html

right now, lane splitting is only legal in california, thanks to the motorcycle cops who road air-cooled bikes that couldn't last through the stop and go traffic.

but the legality of lane splitting is in the grey area because there is no written law that states its actual limits like speed. from law enforcements and motorcycle trainers i've talked to, they are very hesitant on this issue and always give me a response of "as long as its done in a safe manner".

this shows the california vehicle code of lane splitting, http://www.calhsta.org/library/cacode.html.

Nope, me Warrior. I put the stock bars/risers back on, IMO, the TT fat 1.5" bars I had weren't doing it for me.

I have not ridden this year. Every weekend it has been pouring!

The bike is actually pretty tame at idle and rolling off the line. It's a monster at WOT from 3k to redline.

The only motorists I don't give a shit about are the ones that purposely block the lane so I can't ride by. They get an ear full soon after.

The pipes (registered by others on db readers with the same mods) ring in around 126 db, no load ether.. heh

Thanks for the links and for helping to clarify things. I guess safe lane splitting would be when riders go in between cars at a red light to move to the front, but I’m sure it’s a violation if it’s a pack of 5 or more, where you would have violations of lane sharing and also possibly intentionally blocking the cross walk and part of the intersection; I have seen this so many times. Most of the lane splitting I have seen has been at high speed and with guys doing standing wheelies.
