Sounds like you get an at a boy on that one. As for CA, I have never ridden in CA, but have always heard that and there is lots of information on it.
I did find where the CA DMV motorcycle handbook strongly advises against it.
I found the law and some information on a lawyer's website and drilled down a bit further.
Sounds like the basic rule in California is that all persons are supposed to act reasonably in the operation of their vehicles. California Law, Vehicle Code Section 22350
" V C Section 22350 Basic Speed Law
This makes it unlawful to operate a vehicle at a speed which is unreasonable for the given traffic and roadway conditions. A jury may attribute fault for lane changes or lane splitting if someone riding a motorcycle was unreasonable, given the traffic and roadway conditions.
