Do you ever make a video without the bad language? So far all that I have watched you'd have to say no. You have interesting videos that the grandkids would like to watch but I can't let them because of your language. I hope you don't talk like that around your kids should you have any.Videos fine language stinks!

Don't get in the way of a man on his FJR and a Schlotzsky's?
See welljo2001 you are enjoying the big FJR and all the power.
I might have to make a trip up to Placerville and check out the only Schlotzsky's in NorCal now after seeing this.
(My sis in law lives there and rides an 82 Virago 900, really!).
Anyway take this as a challenge to fellow Versys riders, post up your freeway vids, show off your lane splitting skills.
I'm not so good at that so I only do it when I has to. Here is a freeway vid I shot locally. Safe travels my friends.

Use to eat at Schlotzskys all the time in Texas. Theres only 3 of them around here and the closest one is 20 miles away. I go once a week to get my fix.

The FJR is just a tad wider than the Versys so lane splitting isn't much different except for the extra couple hundred pounds but I'm a big guy so i can toss it around easily. Yep the extra power is nice.

Point taken. I guess I'll keep muting your videos when the grandkids watch. Be careful out there and keep the videos coming.

Can't lane split legally in most places and interstates are an awful way to spend time on a bike. I avoid them whenever possible.

Much rather see interesting places or twisty action...unless you can amuse us with scaring the bejesus out of the general public like weljo.

In a hurry lane splitting on the slab yelling obscenities to cagers so you can get to your favorite grind stop quicker....no thanks. Personally, I'd rather pack my lunch and head for the twisties for a couple hours far from that carmegeddon known as SoCal. To each their own though.

Really yelling at who????? My helmet visor is closed and the mic is close to my mouth so the only one on the road that hears me is me.

Hey i was just messing with you. I don't use that kind of language in my dad to day life. My best friend also pointed it out about my videos. For some strange reason when the helmet goes on the f.u.c.k.s. come out. Make for a good topic to bring up to some other guys i know..

3. Now you can be ticketed here even if you're doing the speed limit if you are holding up traffic in the left lane
4. There were a lot of slow drivers in the left lane - very frustrating
5. Fasteddie's traffic and views are much better than LA traffic - IMHO - ride safe!

No doubt, went looking for some vids and while there are a few like the European fellow doing 220Km/h on a Versys 650, and a guy in Istanbul with a new 2015 Versys doing some lane splitting, there really aren't that many. Commuters aside. So we'll just have to keep tuned to weljo's channel and be amused at his cursing at SoCal cagers as he rides between, around or over them.

I don't trust other drivers to be lane splitting, I can wait. If I am late, I guess I should have left earlier.

I don't go that fast, but I can get anywhere 10 miles on the expressways in about 10 minutes give or take. I don't have the choice of living and commuting where I want, and I love splitting lanes! It took me about 6 months to do it and I was never real happy with the 93 Honda 750 Nighthawk doing it (being a mini-brick and all.) But the Vs. 650 is totally different. I still: take great care, blast my dual horns if any questions, and geet by as quick as possible. MOST drivers here are very good because LA has lots of lawyers that help motorcyclists.

And as far as saying obscenities, your life must not mean anything if don't even cuss when someone carelessly almost runs over you multitasking: grand kids or not. AND the REASON for the CA lane splitting law is bikers get run over frequently from BEHIND by multitaskers: IT'S A FACT! So if you are just jealous because you can't do it, don't understand why it not only saves motorcyclist's lives (as well as reduces traffic bottlenecks), or your life is not worth a few cuss words to vent anger from almost needlessly getting run over - GET A LIFE! Quit BITCHING anyway.

Believe me, you are much safer blowing by cars than waiting boxed in between cars for a dizzy teen to snuff you out from the side with no place to run. I'm already a motorcycle stamped on on the side of one 19 year old girl's car and ruined knee meniscus for life (like air planes shot down stamped on the Bloody Red Baron's plane.)
