I wish the rest of the states would look at it a little more. Lane spliting would be good thing. IMO. I hate the fact that we can't lane split out here.
I think it was somebody on here that had said on a hot summer day or even a cold winter day. Sitting in traffic sucks, all these cars have there music., heaters and ac. and what not. Its a PITA to ride a bike in traffice espicaly stop and go...
people in cars should be glad we are on bikes. We are one less person they have to worry about being in front of them.
Most sport bikes if ridden sensiably. Get good MPG's. Better then most eco cars also. I know my bike beats my G/F car by at least 10 and thats her on the highway and me in the city. She has a saturn wich will get about 35MPG's on the highway.
I'm not trying to convice everyone that they need to ride. But People need to realize the benfit of us riding, and let us do it cuase we love it.
Some people will try to close off your lane when spliting. If they don't like the fact that we can do it. Then I guess they need to get there ass on the bike. so they can fill there ego.
