Thanks Tom

It was a group effort. Everyone put some hours into it.
Probably more than they signed up for.

We had many rewrites and discussions.

Maybe something like this:

Practice operating the controls for adverse conditions until you have overcome your panic reactions, and can perform smoothly in an emergency.

Yeah, I agree with this.

Kudos to budman, DD and enchanter

Talk about perseverance and dedication to the moto community; it is difficult to advocate on behalf of such a large group of humans that have various perspectives on the same thing. Many of them will never meet you nor be aware of your existence and the impact you have on riders on a national scale.

Cali riders have no idea how fortunate they are to have such a group of pioneers on their side.

Good job guys! That one phase, that was pointed out above, should be rewritten.

The last point doesn't make much sense in its context.

"You have overcome your panic reactions and can operate the controls smoothly in an emergency."

Probably should be

"Overcome your panic reactions so you can operate the controls smoothly in an emergency."

to fit with the rest.

Good job Bud. I try not to be a snowflake but I see way too many guys with a super high delta splitting during my commute.
I spit when traffic is slow but try to keep a reasonable speed differential so there is time to adapt to the inevitable lane changers.

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks to Budman for making this happen. It was very discouraging to hear that the CHP guidelines would be delayed, and he stepped up when it counted. BARF, at least, will be able to spread sound advice to noob lane-splitters.

Sadly, it can't reach everyone. This happened an hour ago on I-5 in Oceanside:

Incident: 01215, 11/17/2017
Type: Fatality
Location: I5 N / CANNON NO
Detail Information
6:16 PM POSS SEMI VS MC
6:16 PM RIDER DOWN IN LNS
6:16 PM MC DOWN / RIDER IS IN #2 / NOT MOVING
6:17 PM WAS SPLITTING LANES GOING REALLY FAST PRIOR TO TC

I proposed doing them in 2011 when the DMV dude proposed banning lane sharing. That was in the CA motorcycle safety committee. He got pissed because I was not a State representative just a citizen member.

We had the CHP guidelines in '13 for a few months before they were pulled.
Looks great - thank you for all the effort. I wish we took the opportunity to change the term to "sharing" - as it denotes co-op resposibility with motorists.

Filtering helps - though I hear that word in a british accent every time.

I refuse to use the word splitting

Nice list! But the last link at the bottom of the page still seems to be broken. 404 error.

So... we adjusted it.

The link should work now... and we just eliminated the panic statement.

I will send them off to our committees now.
I totally get the sharing vs. splitting. I tried like hell to get the committee and Mr. Quirk to keep it sharing. I lost. Since it is not in the VC as Splitting we followed the protocol.

To address the easier said than done:

"Training and practicing is essential to operating the controls smoothly which will help you overcome the tendancy to panic in emergency situations."

IOW, what you should do, how you should do it ,why you should it and the results of doing it.

You can find them here

I also added some older documents I wrote.
Lane Sharing tips <--- yes sharing

And a piece about what parents should be aware of when their kids get into riding. This really is for Parents that might not know a lot about bikes to help them understand what to be aware of. If you know Parents who child is getting into riding or recently started please feel free to share with them.
