interesting topic. my neighbor whom is a pretty laid back guy (who does not or has ever rode) was absolutely incensed when I road by him on my way into the city. he let me have it with both barrels, "its unsafe, its illegal, i did not see you, you are going to kill your self, why should you when i cannot?" I tried to break it down for him.
#1 there is a difference in lane splitting through congested stopped traffic and doing at super +speeds when the traffic is moving well
#2 Its actually safer
#3 is it my fault you are not aware of your surroundings?
of course his eyes glazed over and nothing i said meant anything. but, the real issue is selling this to johny q public who is completely ignorant of the subject.
