Making your commute faster!

I’ll never be able to afford that. But that would sure be an experience. 
I’ve made my commute faster in California with motorcycle and lane splitting. Almost 40 years of doing so.


This lady on YouTube shows her techniques that I perform by as well.

I had a buddy when in the Air Force try splitting the lanes at a traffic jam. Someone opened a car door and destroyed his leg. He spent 6 months in the hospital trying to save the leg but eventually had it amputated.

It’s a way of life in CA - only place I know where it’s not illegal.

I was just going to post I thought that was illegal. It figures it’s not in Cali-f-upia.

And for what reason?  Am I cutting in front of you in the lunch line at school?    So many fly by me at 80-85 mph only to be a pr($& c about me lane splitting. Hypocrites the way I see it.

Any time I’ve been down there, ( 3 flags, holidays etc.) I wasn’t aware of the road rules, CHP would come up and tell me get going, yessir! find out it’s allowed. The one thing was not flying by at speed but mostly you are slow on a freeway so fairly low speeds were the norm.

No idea that was legal anywhere.  I don’t ride, but I have lots of friends that do.....and they’d never pass like that.

Here in NY.....somebody would pinch you. 

Like said I believe kalifornia is the only legal place.

I remember when driving from Cambridge England to Scotland in 1986 the crotch rockets would go right up the center line on a two lane non divided highway. I was driving around 100 mph and the oncoming traffic was doing similarly. The motorcycles would go by me so fast I didn't even see them coming. I don't know how fast they were going, but it had to be at least 150. The closure rate with the oncoming traffic would have been close to 250 mph.
