Modulating headlight really gets the attention of cage pilots.

Back in the late '80s a friend bought a used CHP KZ1000 for his long daily commute.
Lane sharing was never an issue for him.
Riding an RT does about the same thing.

I'm still trying to figure out how lane splitting would benefit me in Wyoming. Maybe on the odd occurance of getting stuck behind the 1 car at a light, I could move in front of him?

True. I wouldn't recommend wearing a BYU jersey while splitting though.

You *may* get away with a Buffs or Rams jersey. ...but I wouldn't do that either

You act as if anyone around here takes enough time off their to notice a Jersey.

May get you spit at though at traffic lights.

Well, perhaps. But don't try it in Philly's wider suburbia, whatever you are wearing.

I did not insist on filtering, nor do I feel entitled. Nor do I lanesplit, because these suburbanites here consider it "line jumping", and line jumping would piss anybody off.

As the California peeps should know... It is called lane sharing!

No gutter sniping as the CHP call it.

That statement right, there.



I just cant fathom the idea that there might be a rare occurrence of having a car in front. Maybe I need to move.

That is because cattle outnumber people by something like three to one out there.

For real, the entire damn state is like a National Park with a couple gas stations and a couple little towns here and there.
