Yes?

Can you imagine how completely fucked we would be if things had to be allowed rather than disallowed?
Yes, rather completely.

From a selfish point of view: I wish lane splitting would become explicitly legal in CA, the way it is explicitly illegal in the other 49 states. That way we could point at an actual law on the books that works, to convince the legislation in these 49 backwaters to allow lane splitting there as well.
God I miss proper motorcycle behavior like I was used to, not this ridiculous needing to mimic a fooking car!

Come on CA, for the good of the country, strive to make lane splitting legal! Think of the children!

There's quite a variety of produce, that you're not allowed to consume, which you can grow in your backyard. What's your point exactly?

I'm preferring leaving lane-splitting in the "not illegal" category. Undefined, without guidelines or regulations, save those that are already on the books that apply to all riding. As soon as it becomes "legal" and codified, we will see it get whittled away and regulated to the point where you can't split above 30 MPH - and that would be a real step backwards.

How pedantic.
The point had nothing to do with produce and everything to do with the law. Shirley, you jest?

We are in agreement. "Not illegal" is legal. Let's leave it at that.

Wrong. And in a big way. But let's leave it at that.

Someone should really start a thread about lane-splitting which isn't specific to the riders in the state of california and make their opinions known there.

Someone should really take their regional crap to a regional forum and stay out of the international ones.
