I want to kick this thread off with a discussion of a certain riding style.
I see many guys on SBN and other sites talk and brag about riding between the lanes of cars when traffic is slow or stopped. I have even seen a few videos of guys doing around 80mph while doing it. To me it seems quite stupid. With all the people in cars changing lanes because they think the other lane might move faster and having no where to go I just don't see how its worth the risk. I might jump on the sholder or use the bicycle lane for a block or 2 in town but that leaves an escape route to the right if something goes wrong. And I keep it slow.
Is this even legal or do the cops just look the other way? Also I feel we have a responsible group in the ZZR forum (just my opinion on what I've read) so how many of you guys do this?
Every state is different on there lane spliting laws. IMO your asking for it.
State-by-state motorcycle laws
Ray I spent the evening yesterday and this evening out in my man cave working on the bike. Pulled the farings drained and changed the coolant, changed oil and filter, went with a KN-303 this time instead of a KN-204, little longer filter. Had to add a little more oil than normal. Installed the carbon fiber clutch cover and the carbon fiber stator cover, sweeeeeet! Put the bike on my new T-rex stand and pulled the wheels so I can get my new rubber mounted this week. Pulled all the old brake pads front and rear and drained the old brake fluid out. Cleaned all the brake calipers with brake parts cleaner. Re-installed the new rear Galfer pads. Probably going to pull the gas tank tomorrow night and clean the K&N air filter and tackle those spark plugs while I'm at it too. Hey did you check the gap when you did yours? My new NGK Iridiums finally came last Friday, so I figured I would knock it out.
Got sun burned on my face today at the slopes, It was 60 and sunny here today and it rained cats and dogs while I was out in the garage working on the bike. But it helped get rid of the rest of the snow and cleaned off the roads too. I'm working tomorrow and next Sunday the 14th and I'm done for the season. We are going to get started on the cabinet work for the trailer. Milinda's dad is pretty good with wood working so he offered to help me out. So now it's crunch time to get everything finished in the trailer before May. Busy busy busy!
Jay, we have to ride more around Suches next year. I rode some awesome roads this last weekend and never even made it to the Dragon on the Rex. We rode 60, WPG Road, Blood Mountain - took a scenic trip to Helen, GA for lunch (kewl town, looks like it is in Germany...)
Man, feel bad for Rossi - it was a nasty highside. Pedrosa actually hung onto the lead. Normally his lap times are fast for the first 10, then he slows down - not this time. Good struggle for 4th place, and kudos to Dovisioso for another podium. I was beginning to wonder if Lorenzo was going to keep him in the back or not.
