I'm with you on this. Riding is something I really enjoy. It may not be as safe as I'd like but I'm not giving it up. I just take every precautions I can

Hey guys

Good replies both pro and con.  The bottom line is if you ride don't relax for a second.  Keep the radar running, slow down and use your senses to guide your riding.

My commute is from Vancovuer, Wa to Portland, Oregon via I-5 and other freeways.  The closest thing I get to lane splitting is the HOV lane on north bound I-5 from 15:00 to 18:00 each day. 

But, I would rather be riding using my God givien keen senses than sitting in a metal box shuffling along at a snails pace.  Remember, that we are the elite of the motorists out there and accept the risks which come with being on two wheels which yeilds great rewards.
