If you have passed a MSF Course you do not need to take a riding test to get an "M" endorsement but there is still a written exam.

Yeah, I took the course and the written test to get a Tx license, I couldn't get insurance with a EU license.

There's also a handy-dandy event calendar in the thread pinned at the top of the main DFWM page. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to be added to the distribution list.

here's a link:

A couple of lane splitting bills are up this year.

I have already written to my representatives in support of these with the help of the link below.

https://cqrcengage.com/amacycle/app/write-a-letter?0&engagementId=77645&ep=AAAAC2Flc0NpcGhlcjAxCKZr2mpxJuLTq2u-0mMXffUSrk9BA4C-9FpkXDuHq0QNvESjxEFEZXyxzp_kBaHBlXgWHEjL4NnUfAW7HRrULLhO1tBlXkJNZfBQJwfoxI0&lp=0

I really hope one of these gets passed, just think how nice it would be being able to filter through a traffic jam without being concerned about being pulled over, especially once the temperature raises.

OK .. Bummer. I guess the line at the bottom that says "SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2015" confused me Shots

well since it's not "explicitly" forbidden I'll continue to piss people off when it's 100+ and ride the shoulder.
