The maximum width of my ninja 250 is 28 inches, and that's at the handlebars. I've never hit an automobiles side mirror while lane splitting.

I think this is what gives lane splitters a bad rep. This is absolutely suicidal! Flying in between cars 30+mph faster than they are going is absolutely ridiculous.

This is more along the lines of the type of lane splitting that i do. Slow moving/stopped cars and me traveling 10-15mph faster then them.

Listen right at 7:30, he passes a guy stopped on a large touring motorcycle and the guy goes "Stupid!"
Doing my part to reduce dependence on OIL
Doing my part to reduce congestion
And enjoying it!

If you have to use your brakes, you are driving too fast!
