Of course the fastes I ever split is when following moto cops out of the city in the afternoon. 80mph in 60mph traffic is common.

Has anybody started a petition to White House? You know we can do it but need at least 100 000 signatures to be looked at nowadays...

It bogles my mind that, on a motorcycle forum, 166 idiots voted "No."

Someone with a different opinion is an idiot?

While I have split lanes with abandon in California, and with trepidation around N.Y.C., I see a world of hurt coming down if it becomes widespread.
That is of course until basic civility is taught to millions of macho cagers who already hate bikes.
Example 1. The first race at the Ky. Speedway , I'm coming up the hill from the ohio River and get to the end of a line of cars miles from the track. I'm on a air cooled bike , it's summer and hot. So, after a few minutes waiting and creeping , I pull out and start upo the hill.
I had dickheads cut out over the line with their front fenders, open doors, and shout the sort of thing you never hear in church. Sure, they were stuck and frustrated, but would it really have been better for them to have me cook my motor and suffer with them?
I got by them all and was waved into the track and to the preferred bike parking right behind the stands. it felt like a victory for presevereing in the face of the enemy.
You think it's just the southern Redneck attitude that causes problems ?
No , I was in N.Y.C.visiting and ended up in the Long Island crawl heading to Hicksville. So ,I started easeing between the cars and trucks, mostly I hear shouts and the oiccaisional blast of horn, but sometimes people far enough ahead would see me coming in their mirrors and jut a fender out into my path.
Love for fellow man ? Not on Long Island. The worst was a Pathfinder driver who nearly took me out. He's the only one that was given the universal, You're #1 signal.

I'm not sure yet. Seems to me that it would be extremely easy to abuse, given the way bikes are treated as toys around here, but it apparently works great in third world countries (like California), so there's that.

I haven't had that much of a problem splitting here in DFW. I am past 99% of the cars before they even know I am there (Wee-Strom stock pipes). I have had a few horn honks, and an occasional redneck sticks his fender out.
I have never had a car try to pinch me off, only trucks. And always had plenty of warning. Never had a door open on me yet.

Haven't heard that much yelling or ADV salutes, but then again I wear earplugs. I am so focused on my lane-splitting, that I am really not looking at people, except for in their mirrors.

If you see a face in their mirror watching you, watch out. If it's attached to a jacked-up redneck truck really watch out

Again most people are too involved in their personal electronic toys to even notice, except Bubba in his redneck truck, I guess he has no toys.

I split regularly in akron, The only time i get pinched is when traffic is at a standstill. I'm gone before most people even realize i'm there.

Lots of honks and yelling though once i'm already past them though.
