Default This has nothing to do with safety.

This is purely a spiteful, mean-spirited attempt by SUV-driving fat-cats with too much power to punish people without much power. This has nothing, zero, nada to do with safety.



These snobby burecrats just can't bear to see, what they consider as second-class citizens, zooming up to the front of the queue at every traffic light.

Default Re: Bikers fight lane splitting ban Down Under.

Hmmm...I'm a NYC-boy soon moving down to Charlotte, NC. I've lived in Manhattan for 6-1/2 years and have ridden in the metro NYC area for almost 11. I've lane-split through most of this time and certaintly while I lived in the city and I've never had an incident like you described (I have to admidt I feel like knocking on wood when I say this). The most was maybe a comment here and there. I wonder if people in Charlotte would react in the way you describe? Unfortunately, my instinct leans toward yes. Maybe because they are not used to it, that sort of thing. It's stupid of course- some kind of wierd territorial thing (kind of mean like you said). I'm going to have a hard time not doing it when/if traffic is heavy (the only time I basically do it here). Anyone from the area who can enlighten?
