#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.
all good points... but ya' kind of overshot that last comment...

Yes - let the rider decide; but do so responsibly.
