    A while back I posted a message that said Texas passed a lane splitting law and others have pointed out that the proposal didn't pass. But recently I read one of the popular American bike mags (it's either Cycle World, Motorcyclist or Sport Rider as they are the only three American bike mags I read) and they said that Texas did pass the lane splitting/lane sharing law.

    Can any Texan rider conform this?

    I wish it was legal to split lanes in all 50 states. Part of the reasons I ride a scoot is to cut down on traffic congestion, so let me avoid the congestion by splitting the lanes.

    OK OK, that's the public reason for riding, the real reason is, I freaking love it!
