The Brave Lane-Splitting Bikers of the Streets of San Francisco
Lane-splitting, famously legal in California only, can be a dangerous game on the freeway. But what about the mean city streets of San Francisco?
These two fellows must have a lot of good stories of close calls if they spend much time lanesplitting on bloody Masonic Avenue, as shown here.

All lanesplitters should wear the medal of the Vatican-certified patron saint of motocycle riders, Columbanus of Bobbio.
(Columbanus gives you protection from floods as well. Bonus!)
