Just curious, on freeways during heavy traffic, do you guys ride in between traffic? Is this legal? I don't usually ride heavy traffic, but I was in traffic this weekend in the cage, and had several bikes go by me...its cool that we can fit through traffic like that, but looks risky.

In Cali it is legal, as long as you remain inbetween the fast and 2nd lane, you also can't go more than 10mph over the speed of traffic, and if traffic is going above i "THINK" 30 it becomes illegal

In Cali it's legal. It's called splitting lanes. I usually do it when there both lanes are travelling the same rate of speed. If one lane is slower or faster than the other it can be dangerous, as you'll have cagers pulling in and out of lanes. Most of the times, they never pay attention to you.

cagers are people in automobiles. those things that people ride in with four or more wheels that can crush you in a moments notice and that out number us bikers about 100 to 1. im sure youve seen some around :mrgreen:

Actually, in CA it is neither legal nor illegal. CHP does state that Lane splitting by motorcycles is permissible but must be done in a safe and prudent manner" which is up to them to decide whether you are being safe or not.

man just the other day i seen a cage try and run a cat off the shoulder while he was passin him...i just think that shit it stupid...i can see if its in rush hour traffic and you split some lanes to get home sooner but to split traffic and go on the shoulder when all you have to do is wait a second for a car or two to move thats just askin to die...

i dont do it cuz its stupid not cuz its legal or illegal...but thats just how i ride so to all you lane splitters and shoulder passers be careful and i hope you got some angels ridin on the back of that bike

Everything on a bike is illegal in Iowa. can't do shit, can't get away with shit, cops lie about everything........just completely hated. UNLESS you ride a harley.

but i dont lane split unless at stoplights. Doing it in traffic is asking for something far worse than a low side or a high side.
