    Hi Guys,

    I wanted to share this short video about filtering and also try to embed a YouTube video.



    So did I do it?

    Love, light and kindness,

    Likewise, worked for me - if there was supposed to be sound, I didn't hear it until the end.  I had to look up the word, "bollard" - I learned something new today.   :002:  I'm not sure that I would filter (lane split) here in the States, if it were legal.  I'd be concerned with road rage among other things...

    It won't ever be legal here.   I'm an American from many generations back, and a booster of most things American as a result, but Americans in general have a character flaw that make driving difficult.

    They all have to BEAT YOU!   They will tailgate you and then whip out and pass you like a house afire, and 50 yards ahead, they will slow back down until they are back with you again.   Why did they pass you in the first place?   Because they had to BEAT YOU.

    They will see a sign that says "Right Lane Closed Ahead 1 Mile.   Merge Left."   You dutifully merge left, but then some arsehole passes you on the right JUST before the barrier and forces his way in front of you.   He BEAT YOU!

    We don't use roundabouts, which are the most effective way to keep traffic flowing at crowded intersections.   Why?   Because American drivers don't understand the concept of give-and-take, merge with the flow of traffic, you let THAT guy in and then he'll let someone ELSE in.   No.   That would mean that someone ELSE BEAT YOU, and we can't have that.

    That's why motorcycles will never be able to filter.   If a car is sitting in traffic and a motorcycle eases by to the front of the queue, then he has BEAT YOU.   And an American car driver will literally try to murder you with his car to keep that from happening.   They will kick and squeal and beat their little fists at the UNFAIRNESS of someone getting in front of you just because they chose to ride a motorcycle.

    It is SUCH a pleasure to ride a motorcycle in England, with drivers who have been trained and know where their fenders are, and who understand that we'll ALL get there faster with a little give-and-take ....

    I'm going back some years now but I heard of cops pulling a gun on a British biker just because he were filtering on a bike,...it were his first time riding in the States.

    It is my understanding that California has just approved lane splitting.I have done it when the traffic is at a standstill and it is 90 degrees or brutally warm out.I keep the rpm's high so that the idiots who are in cages can hear me if they don't see me.I know i can get ticketed but i actually have passed many patrol cars over several years  and never been asked to stop.I am usually never in a rush to get anywhere but sitting in traffic baking in the sun is not an enjoyable ride.
    My 2 cents.

    Lane splitting in the past has always been "tolerated" in California by the police because it wasn't specifically "forbidden" by the law ... been like that forever.   Now they've made a change to the law to make it a little "more legal" than it was before.

    That's 1 state down, 49 to go .....
