    I must be a nanny, cause I think anyone who rides like that is an idiot. Of course, it might be more acceptable overseas, but at least when his organs are smeared across the highway, the video will let everyone know the cager was not at fault.

    Lane splitting IS safe and efficient. Just not like that.

    Lanesharing is legal in California, widely accepted and people expect it. It can be done very safely - ask any CHP officer in the metro areas, especially motors, and you will find surprisingly few lanesharing collisions.

    Looks nuts. I looked like he was intentionally locking up the rear when braking and also breaking away the rear when giving it gas.

    Sounded like a V-twin, i couldn't tell who the maker was.

    That is a situation where a rental car with the extra insurance would come in handy.

    This is a perfect lesson on how NOT to ride.
