Perhaps NY should just legalize lanesplitting and then there'll be no problem. Might just ease that traffic congestion a little as well.

Oh, and First Post!!

Oh my god, they were going fast! oooh ho.

Most people in CA don't know lane spliting is legal anyway. Any yea jelousy is always a factor...

I don't see what's wrong with spliting lanes at a good speed either, the faster you go the more stationary (easyer to predict) everything else becomes.

relativity baby....

Oviously you reach certain personal limits, but those limits are at their highest when your 20 or so...

What's the big deal really? I mean if you screw up you'll be the one hurt not the cagers.. maybe they'll get their cages dented but they'll be fine, you take the risk, you'll take the hurt if you screw up, it's only dangerious to you.
I tend to dissagree on two points...

1. How do wheelies make us look bad? I always get people on the street or in their cars motioning to me to do a wheelie... I especialy want to when I see poor kids do it when I ride though poorer neiborhoods.. but I can't get much of a wheelie on the little EX500... still I don't see what the problem with them is?

2. When I go on rides if anyone doesn't have leather pants, jacket, full face helmet decent gloves, and some proper riding boots, I give them a hard time, sometimes though out the ride if they're really skimping... seems like some people spend all their $$ on a new bike and don't have any left for gear. But they're always very receptive and it has worked to make them get gear and so far... 0 fights.
