In closing - grow a pair fuckface and have a nice day.
More stupidity on your part. I never expressed an opinion of my own on the matter, you jumped to conclusions. And then you resorted to name calling... very grown up on your part.
I would prefer we have a real law giving us a lane splitting rights, but the unwashed masses of cagers who believe they are the only legitimate traffic on the road will never let it pass.
"1%" is an exaggeration even in California, there is one bike for every 50 people, and half the riders are not in a patched club.
I doubt they make up even 1% of the riders.
So typical commuting/pleasure riders like myself stand no chance of getting a lane splitting law... we are just too outnumbered.
