If you plan on being in the LA or Bay Area, you will see that there is a web of freeways. Staying in the far right lane would mean you have to cross over a few lanes of traffic if you want to continue on the same freeway or you'd be forced onto another one. The traffic would be going at least 20 mph faster than you so you would be creating a hell of a mess crossing their path. Even going the posted speed limit for all other traffic, you will find yourself being passed by cops and people pulling boats. Yes, there is a speed limit but it is seldom enforced. They used to have special lanes for vehicles that had two or more passenger. I used to feel safe in these lanes when riding a bike because they were the only lanes people couldn't dart in and out of. However, my son who lives in the Bay Area says that they are making those toll lanes. You can bet your ass they will enforce that one. As Joe says, there are a ton of things to see all over California as long as mudslides and forest fires don't prevent you from getting to them. ;-)
