The link isn't working unfortunately. But I don't really do too much in traffic... there's not much to do lol. I think the link may be key towards what you're gearing the question at

That one definitely works and LOL that gave me a good chuckle. I'm never really that "physically happy", I'm very contained so the most you'll see is me bobbing my head a little.

Gotta keep yourself entertained in traffic somehow. :D We gotta make the best of slow traffic and it's illegal for me to lane split.

I like to combine the long stride move with gas tank drum solo and belting out tunes to my bluetooth. That rapid run move is new to me, but looks interesting.
There's also the move where I lean the bike to each side a bit, gives me a decent leg workout.

I know some bikes that overheat when left idling too long gets shifted into neutral when stuck in traffic and then you scoot the bike forwards using man power. I try to avoid those situations and roads like the plague.

He could be trying to cheat his Fitbit. :grin2: Most likely he's just trying to have fun and keep the flowing in the legs to prevent cramps.

I just lane split all day every day, the best is when in traffic, no cop can keep up ;)

What helps is I do this mostly during morning and afternoon rush hour commutes which makes it even more difficult for a cop to do anything. Their main goal is to manage traffic at that point.

I wish we could lane split where we are. As much as no cop can keep up, we have some real dumb dumb drivers around here and it just isn't safe at all.

Bad enough cars almost hit me when I'm not lane splitting, the danger increases when you do. I'll just stick with horrible traffic and entertaining myself.

The chance of tapping a car goes up but the chance of being rear-ended by a car not paying attention or on phone drops. I've only bumped mirrors a few times, once when rolling slowly past a right fit, twice while on throttle. First time was going slow and the mirror engaged my brake lever, so I now have some cheap all plastic hard guards on that bike; Soon will have aluminum barstock bark busters on SCR.

I also lane split during 60% of my commute, but never on the freeway..... unless traffic is under 20mph.

A SCR950 Facebook page admin just pointed out I'm quoted in a new Yamaha video on YouTube posted yesterday.
I remember writing up a review for Yamaha. I just didn't think they would use it for anything. COOL BEANS!!

You're Youtube famous now! I thought those reviews were just going towards market research, didn't think Yamaha would use them in their short ads.

Kind of makes me rethink all those surveys I've ever done for new vehicle purchases and the people who sift trough them...

I really can't remember the last time I did survey... just because I always thought that they weren't even looked at. Now... I stand corrected and will probably take them more seriously... probably lol.

Most surveys I receive gets tossed into a corner or deleted unless completing one gives me something in return.

As for lane splitting, it's illegal in a majority of states is it not? As far as I know, it technically is legal in California, but that's pretty much it.

I think California is the only place where lane splitting is legal. Don't recall anywhere else and California only made it legal August last year?
