    That's the attitude! Never stop practicing and sharpening your skills!

I think it also talks about lane splitting (you riding between rows of cars when there's heavy traffic) and also states that it's not safe. I think that it's perfectly legal to split lanes, though. A lot of motorcyclists do it.
    Yes, lane splitting, filtering, sharing, whatever the official term is. Wondered if they discussed it, and their stance on it.
