Hey BO, once you are back online from your involuntary WD winter break ... I have a question about Rules of the US Roads.

When can one “filter” through traffic and when can you not? I know each state has its own rules about this but earlier you mention waiting in line in traffic ... can you not just slowly make your way to the front of the line or does this create drama?

Thanks. Ian
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

Old bike: '82 Eddie Lawson Replica
Other bike: '05 Honda Varadero 1000
New bike: '16 Honda Africa Twin.

Hey Ian,

Quite simple really. Some States allow it, others don't. In the states that don't allow it, it is illegal and will get you pulled over. Trying to filter in the States that don't allow it also causes issues. Motorists block bikes, even to the point of aiming at them if they try to filter. I have personally seen this. The mindset of "don't even THINK about breaking the law" ...while he texts on his phone while driving...   :pot:

Another reason why I love this 'lawless' country. I just don't have it in me to obey a no lane splitting rule in town, despite being slow, doddery and almost 103 years old.

Yesterday I took a ride and got thoroughly bogged down in deep sand where I wasn't supposed to be. After nearly killing myself straining and heaving to get the bike out and turned around, then nearly wrenching off my arms holding it through several near washouts getting back to the tar, I hit the home going traffic jam.

In a thoroughly black evil mood at my pathetic lack of sand skills, I thought, "No way I'm sitting behind these bloody bozos". So I took no prisoners and zapped 'em all.  :angry5: >:D

Reckless. Irresponsible. Danger to myself and others.  :patch: But I arrived home in a totally elated frame of mind having stuck it to the bastards. Sometimes lane splitting can gain you more than just places in the traffic queue.  >:D

I've only just cottoned on to this amazing RR...so this gives me some catch up time to read it ;D

Thanks BO ( hope you eventually see this ) truly brilliant RR.  And...the fact that my GF's daughter and fam live in Michigan makes it all the more intersting.

BO, did you not go over to the Mackinac island, just to the east of the bridge? Well...not good material for a RR though because the only permissable modes of transport are bicycle and horse  :-\
