Recently my wife and I rode to Pechanga Casino, about 45 -55 minutes away. On the way back home there was an accident no one could see because it was a half mile up the road, this was a main non freeway road. I have never split lanes on the 9 because I haven't had a genuine need and its a big bike. It was absolutely stopped traffic so I pulled all the way over to the far right and proceeded to split lanes where the end of the far lane and the bike lane meet, is that legal? Also are our bikes too big to safely split in between the 1 and 2 lane or 2 and 3 etc lanes? I would never split lanes in medium or even slow traffic, but very slow or stopped traffic I would consider doing if it was safe. Do you split lanes when necessary? Thanks guys.
