So after 3 1/2 years and i'd say 50,000+ kms, a LOT of which were spent splitting, i've finally copped my first fine for it. Jumped onto the western freeway this morning there was a truck in the left lane i merged in front of, pulled out to split and to the right of the truck was a bike cop. Pulled over and also gave me grief about my fender kit (which came with the bike + safety cert). So I also copped a fine for a 'defective vehicle' ($100) even though I explained thats how i bought it, with safety cert, only 2 months ago. The fine for splitting was written as 'fail to drive in marked lane' @ $80. I could live with $80 every 3 1/2 years if it means i can keep splitting and enjoying my motorcycle.
