Oh, Man ! and it's the yellow one too, my favorite Vstrom color. Glad you didn't get busted up. Oregon is considering lane splitting, and I can see when it would be an advantage. On one occasion, on a trip south between Santa Cruz and Monterey, traffic was backed up and stalled. I heard a pair of HD Road Glides come up behind me splitting lanes, and followed them through most of the stalled traffic at about 25 mph. Their exhaust noise seemed to alert drivers ahead of us that we were coming and the lanes split like Moses splitting the waters of the Red Sea. As great as it was, I continued that trip down to LA, and got caught in traffic a couple more times, but that was the only time I split lanes. My Givi V35 side bags width and silent stock exhaust made me nervous.
