Yeah, we're kind of in that part of the year when Sportecs don't seem like the smartest tire choice, and everyone has to recalibrate their expectations on a ride. A friend of mine switches over to his elderly BMW from his nearly new ST4, and figures that stuff will start to drag before he exceeds the limits of the New Reality. We live with it for four or five months, you guys, I would guess eight or nine. I'm thinking of going to the Metzler M-3 next time I buy tires, which might help a little (much deeper grooves), but basically, we have to take on a different mentality this time of year. Thinking back, this is the time of year when I've had most of my crashes, not adjusting mentally quick enough to changing conditions. It's a tradeoff, I suppose. The folks in San Diego, except during El Nino's, can count on dry roads maybe 90% of the time, the people up North 25 or 30%. My friend just doesn't ride much, because he can't go all out like he loves to, but I really don't know if he's 'hard core' because he won't comprimise by running harder rubber, or you guys that ride year round are the true 'hard core' because you ride all year, albiet at somewhat more sedate speeds. Maybe just different symptoms of the same disease.

Us Californian's are free to lane split any time we want to, but I think you're nuts if you do it while traffic is moving. People see an openining and go for it, and if you happen to be in their blind spot, the resulting carnage may technically your fault, but guess who's gonna get hurt/killed? When everything is stopped, it's the best thing since sliced bread. When the light changes, or the blockage is cleared, you should be ahead of the enormous clot of cars that have built up. And, I think that's what the law was intended for--to reward people who use little fuel per passenger/mile and have a small footprint. The best way to prevent people from changing lanes into you is to stay in the part of the lane which makes you most visible, usually the left. I'll take good sense over a good lawyer any time.
