There is a big effort to get riders to contact their Senators.

The bill is on the appropriations consent calendar and once past that will go to the full Senate. We are at an historical impass. The first chance to implicitly have lane sharing be legal in the USA.

It will allow other Moto activists to push for it in there State. IF you are from another State and want my help with that just ask.

NBC is putting together a story on it now and barfers will be featured in that. The Bay Area Riders Forum has been front and central in this issue for five years. That rocks.

Stay involved. Support the sport and Rock barf!!

Well we are just a signature away from having it our way!!

AB 51 has passed and only the Governor needs to put his approval on it.

Pretty fricking stoked. What started back in 2011 in the CA Motorcycle Safety Committee has now lead to a great application of the law.

Really just what the group that was working Mr. Quirk wanted.

Lots of different sources out there now.

Just caught a subtle difference that AB51 will provide- only motorcycles can do it. The existing "non" law allowed automotive traffic to split if they fit next to a motorcycle, that will no longer be the case (if I'm reading correctly).
