What's their take on, "loud pipes save lives" besides the fact they're illegal? Do they ticket for loud pipe infractions often?

Well, who the heck is going to write them a speeding ticket?

I wouldn't want to try to spend all day in leathers when I had to spend much of my time standing in the hot sun writing tickets. They spend surpirisingly little time actually getting that 60-80 air conditioning.

I'd be tempted to say that asking for INTELLIGENT questions from the posters at MO is asking a bit much, but that would lay me open too much....D'oh!

The full-face would be the mark of the atrociteur. Only the manly gendarme, inheritor of the Marshall Dillon legerdemaine and Miss Kitty's affections, shall be allowed to let the handlebar mustache blow in the breeze above the square, rugged chin of John Law.

According to the handbook given out by the DMV, lanesplitting is "not illegal". However, they recommend that riders don't lanesplit because it is unsafe in most situations.

I commute on US 50 in Sacramento and Eldorado county. The recently opened diamond lanes are being abused by single car drivers, commercial vehicles, and all vehicles are using it as a super speedway with 75 + mph speeds under heavy traffic conditions. I usually feel ok riding 5 or even 10 over under light conditions, but object to being FORCED into the other lanes by crazed female SUV drivers desperate to get to Tahoe. The cages have had enough time to figure out the law, how about a crackdown at 6 am and 4PM?

There certainly isn't a rule, but like the mental requirements of a goat herder, it doesn't take much to keep the mongoloid hordes in line.
