That was great! But the crossing of the double yellow not so cool...
You ever been on those roads that are plenty straight to pass on, but for some reason it is still double yellow? Obviously 129 is not that road...however, we have TONS of those around here. I never cross a double yellow...even if the road is straight.
That was histerical! But the yellow line thing isn't that taboo... is it? I have no problem passing on a double yellow in a straight as long as no one is comming. I won't ever do it in a turn, but come on... straight aways?

That's what I was referring to. There are tons of places where there is plenty of visibility and plenty of straight for a bike to pass, and sometimes even a cage. But I guess the road departments play it on the safe side and make the double yellow too long...or maybe they are just too lazy to make some areas hashed.
A small group of us (3 to be exact) passed a pickup on a straight stretch of double yellow once. We began the pass right at the end of the passing zone. Probably still over 1/4 mile to the next bend. We went on the back way and had to stop and get fuel. We ended up meeting the pickup at the gas station. The two of us on Standards (919 and ZRX) didn't need fuel, but the 600rr guy did. He got yelled at by the lady in the truck. She said she would run him over and he was a danger to everyone on the road. There was some mention of him needing to tatoo his vital information on his balls so they could identify the body. I don't know. She said nothing to us and her husband was just turning away from us in embarrassment. She tried to get our license plates. (mine was still a temporary paper plate with the outer 4 numbers folded in so it fit in the plate bracket and you can't see the 600rr plate without getting much closer than she was.) That incident has pretty well deterred me from passing anywhere near double yellows. Will I ever do it again? Depends on the situation...a car going 20 MPH on a section of road where I can see for a mile and obviously tell there is nothing coming...maybe.
Holly that was halarious...They were definitely a little crazy though. Last shot where the guy over shot the exit of that turn and went off...then politely picked the bike back up and put back on the street and proceed again was priceless
Just one of the many illegal things I've seen at the gap. Pocketbikes, full out race prepped bikes, full out prepped race cars, dirt bikes, go karts, etc. What makes it funny to me is when people start complaining about the police effort around there.
