Wicked Scooter vs Supermoto and the never ending lane splitting debate.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmr45veL_JI

Came across this video,i've heard there is some debate about lane splitting being legalized in the US at the moment so i thought i would fill you guys in in what you're missing (or not). 2 thumpers,one a scooter and the other a sumo going at it.
What's your opinion on lane splitting? how would you lane split if it was legal in the US??

I'd say the scooter smoked him! Where is this place? South America speaking French?

Not to be a nanny , but that's a good video to argue against lane splitting
Lots of reckless moves that would get you a ticket in California which is clarifying lane splitting -- (Looks like this has passed)

AB 51 is a new bill that would make lane-splitting unequivocally legal, permissible when traffic is moving at 30 mph or less and when motorcyclists drive no more than 10 mph faster than nearby traffic.
A UC Berkeley study released last fall found that lane-splitting is no more perilous than riding a motorcycle in a marked lane except when motorcyclists drive 10 or more mph faster than the surrounding traffic.

Excellent riding by both. I wonder which one got to the morgue/hospital first?

lane splitting should be legal.

the problem of riding like a fucking idiot will solve itself unfortunately.

edit:

and for the record, here in Komifornia it's the cagers jumping across the double yellow (or two double yellows) like they dont even exist, that makes lane splitting "dangerous".

lmfao thanks guys for the replyes. the guy in the orange sumo is a track rider and has been doing this for years,he is a friend of mine,he has a channel and is riding a fz-09 now,if anyone wants to see how that bike deals with extreme urban riding check his newer videos.. there are some tricks in this kind of riding,even tho it looks like mindlessly accelerating trough cars, that we learn after a few crashes. riding like this is illegal too,but in a crash the only one that gets hurt 99% of the time is the rider alone,so i guess cops just pretend not to see it most of the time or just don't have enough skill to go after the guys on their own bikes. i consider myself lucky to live in a place where i can ride like this too,even tho i ride half as hard as the guys in the video. it's so awesome to leave sports cars behind even tho my bike costs 5k dollars hahahaha it's obvious that this kind of riding would not work in most countries,especially the U.S. but i hope you guys can lane split your own way some day. peace

As a lane splitter in SoCal, both guys will be dead sooner rather then later.

I would like to see your sumo/scooter and raise you ghost rider

While riding in Europe solo in 2013, I encountered Lane splitting often very similar to this. Tried it on my 1200 GS Adventure in Paris and Rome. Takes a bit getting used to but there, the cars know you are in the lanes since so many bikes. Here in California, cagers are too busy texting or applying makeup to see us. Never do it even on my Hypermotard.
