Elections are OVER - You win some and you lose some. Legislation doesn't stop - ABATE of California has a paid Lobbyist to watch out for Bills that can help or hinder us. Read his report in the Bailing Wire - on our website. 

In California it is LEGAL for Motorcycles to SHARE LANES, but there are guidelines to follow. Thank you to the California Highway Patrol for posting the guidelines, and a thank you to The Sacramento Bee for publishing the article.


The guidelines note: Inexperienced motorcyclists should not lane split. Law enforcement officers can, at their discretion, determine that a motorcyclist is lane-splitting unsafely.  Other drivers should not try to impede motorcyclists from lane-splitting.  


Additonal State guidelines were posted on the CHP website at: www.chp.ca.gov  under "CHP Programs", by clicking on the headline "California Motorcyclist Safety".  Or clicking this link to Download Lane Splitting Guidelines in PDF.
In California, the Motorcycle Safety Program is administered by the CMSP which is California's official motorcycle safety and training program. To find a course location near you, www.ca-msp.org or call 1.877.RIDE.411

ABATE of California is a motorcyclists' rights organization dedicated to preserving individual freedom and promoting safety. We fully support rider training, safety and educational programs. Our members also raise funds for the less fortunate, through charity runs and benefits. We encourage our members to become active in their local communities. ABATE works to protect the rights of all motorcyclists through direct involvement in the political process. You, as an individual, can help in the ongoing struggle against anti-motorcycle legislation both here in California, and across the United States, by becoming an ABATE member.

ABATE is non-partisan and welcomes all riders. We give those with a strong interest in motorcycling an opportunity to unite and become part of one of California's strongest motorcycle organizations. ABATE feels that all of us, from lifestyle rider to
off-road-fan, are brothers and sisters with a common interest — riding free!
