Gotta love the lane splitting, I've only been out here a few months and already know it's gonna be REAL hard to give it up if I move back east. Always remember, "close your eyes Luke, use the force". If that doesn't work for you then another line from a parody, "fock the force Luke, open you GD eyes".

yikes, sorry to hear that vic! You gotta be more careful with the lane splitting...hehe...remember cars and especially SUV's have no idea you are there, treat them like they are the most stupid people alive (which they probably are) and take it easy. Hope your elbow is alright...wouldn't want your driving skills to be affected just when you get a race car :P
