I pray every day for Lane Splitting to be legalized here in Florida. Boy do we need it! And as to the comment about being rear ended, if somebody is coming up behind you at high speed with their brakes squealing, you are for sure going to move out of their way! I know for a fact, because that is what I did one day on 49th St Northbound in Pinellas Park Fl a couple of months back. I stopped at a red light in fairly heavy traffic, in the left lane, at the front of the line, other cars to the right of me, when a Big Black Pickup Truck comes blasting up behind me with brakes squalling. No time to look, i instantly gunned it, and shot to the right in front of the truck that was stopped on the right side of me. The Big Black Truck just barely missed me, because I had moved quick out of the way. I was on my 400 riding 2 up. It was so good having those 16 gram sliders in my CVT, they really helped! So I split that lane mighty quick and saved me and my passenger a lot of pain and misery. So you will split when you need to, believe me.
If you want to see how nice lane splitting can be, just watch some of M13's You Tube videos of Taiwan Scooterist riding between the cars and you will see what I mean.
