Yup same here. People are people so you always run in to a jerk or two. But for the most part people are good about giving you that extra inch or two.I ride all day long in Southern California, mainly the beach cities. People here a re very cool about lane splitting, often moving their cars over to let me through.
yep legal here in NSW when traffic slow or stopped. The law was changed to allow it after police ran trials in Sydney a few years ago that found no increase in accidents or other issues.the laws on lane splitting differ from state to state in australia how ever in south oz their looking at legalising
in one form or another but most motorcyclists do it any way and personally ive had no dramas with police or motorists
Just about covers car drivers in Australia,[in Queensland anyway,] too.Here in Texas they will intentionally try to get in your way or yell at you, they can't stand to see you get ahead of them.
Wow,I'm in Thailand ATM but I never knew it was legal to drive down the wrong side of the road,even though they ALL do it.I thought it was just taking the easy[lazy] way rather than travel an extra 100ydsHere I can lane split, overtake on the inside, outside, or even drive down the wrong side of the road (yes - as advised by the Thai Highway code when turning across traffic) but it still doesn't stop the bastardos from all trying to kill me!
Might take you up on that, dig how they look and they work great. But I keep scraping em' on car mirrors. >Ha! let me know if you want to sell them :wink2:
