Lane splitting is something that can get you into some big trouble with the law unless you happen to live in sunny old California. Filtering through stopped, slow, or fairly rapidly moving traffic is perfectly acceptable as long as you’ve got the right bike to do it on and you’re a decent rider. I don’t think I’ve got to explain what kind of bike other than the narrower the better. Slicing between cars on a big Harley bagger can have its moments to say the least and an often even-wider custom bagger probably leaves you out of the lane-splitting loop altogether. But, not for Chris Richardson of LA Speed Shop fame. His Panhead bagger can slice and dice with the best of them.
