If I have a clear line of sight, I use both sides of the road on the twisties.
Double yellow lines are like speed limits: they are only for cars.

I 'm a bit surprised you so willingly admit this. Perhaps your just being sarcastic but if you can't stay in your own lane, then you should improve your cornering skills or perhaps slow down and actually ride within your ability.

Since speed limits have to be safe for UPS trucks, I might do something like this. :D

Well....
 
If you can't stay in your lane, you're out of control regardless of how slow you're going.

Do us all a favor and trade in your motorcycle for a Yugo, because clearly you're outmatched by anything with two wheels.

There's a difference between not being able to stay in your own lane, and choosing to go outside of it.

And why would you choose to do that? Because the road is a racetrack?

Apex and all? Come on, keep it on the track.

Lazy rider. :deal While I see no real problem with using the opposite side of the road if the sight lines are clear... I still wonder: WHY?

On a track I can see it as you are trying to make the best time. On a twisty public road it is folly and robs you of one of the reasons you bought a motorcycle in the first place. (to enjoy the twisty public roads)

There are riding techniques that will allow you to tighten your line if you enter a turn and find out after entry it is a decreasing radius turn, Those people either need to do one of two things, SLOW DOWN, or Learn how to ride.

On my first trip to the dragon, I made a few passes and managed to never leave my lane.

True. One means you can't ride, the other you just ride like a dick.
