Your Thoughts on Lane Splitting – Should Motorcycles Lane Split?

Lane Splitting on Motorcycles

Over the last week on our Facebook page, we’ve been asking visitors to let us know what they think about lane splitting.  As you can imagine, we’ve received many opinions, some stronger than others, supporting both sides of this issue. For example…

Jeff M. commented: “I hate it when people do it through stopped traffic while traveling at speed. There is just too much risk of someone doing something silly and if you crash your bike, you’ve tied up traffic even further.”

Andy M. said: “Only a fool would lane split. Those that do give riders a bad name.”

Dan V. feels: “Moving traffic no, when roads become a parking lot I do, most Aussie cagers accept it and give the bike room, why should bikers contribute to the congestion.”

Jen Z. writes: “I ride as much as I can and I have been told by cagers that THAT is one reason why they don’t like bikers. It’s showing off and I don’t like it when they do it either. It’s dangerous and it really shows ignorance on the biker’s part.”

Last but not least, according to Tim F. “I loved it in cal. I find my self doing it in North Carolina and the cops don’t think it’s funny but I get where I am going quicker I wish they would make it legal here!”
