No matter how much you wag your finger, you know you speed. 5-10mph over is speeding even if you can do it all day without getting a ticket. You have passed on a double yellow, again no matter how much you deny it.

I ride my lines in such a manner, I still use my track technique in that I create a late entry point and in turn have a later apex so that as I exit any turn I have more room in my lane to make any necessary adjustments.
The Apex is where you or I say it is. You choose to treat the double yellow line as though it were the edge of pavement. Honestly 99% I do as well, but when the sight lines, camber, or tightness of curve let me decide to cross over, I don't hesitate and I don't see a problem with it.

I become a better rider every day. Practice Practice Practice.

If there is oncoming traffic, I'll be no where near that lane. I make the decision to cross and if I decide not to, there is never a problem staying to the right of the line.

I think that's an acceptable situation, because usually, the slow-moving vehicle will move over, effectively allowing a pass without using the oncoming lane.
Which is exactly the certainty that I make my decision with as well, and I think it's acceptable too.

Every time you step out the door it's probably. Motorcycles are a much more dangerous mode of transport than a car or a bus, but you have weighed the consequences and obviously think it's worth it.

Right here.

Speeding during a legal pass is still speeding. You'll even find a few threads around here with people gripping about getting a ticket while passing when they were otherwise going the speed limit.

Point being, you think breaking the law is OK for you as long as you feel you've met your "Basic Common-sense" criteria.

Never equated them as the same. The point made by one about crossing into the other lane...

So breaking some laws is OK, but not others. They've drawn an arbitrary line of lawlessness and think somehow that makes them OK, but not others. Slippery slope that one is.

If it's legal, it ain't illegal, is it?

You're reaching way far, here.

He meant speeding to pass in a legal passing zone...I KNOW you KNOW what he meant.

Why do so many people on this site nit-pit every little POS thing they can find? If I didn't know any better I'd think this was a riding site exclusively for lawyers...

Who's reaching way far?

Sorry, speeding while passing in a legal passing zone is still speeding. It's not a reach if you're getting the ticket.

In some (NOT all) States it is legal to speed when passing.

Got a list? I know for a fact it is in VA.


EDIT: A quick Google gets me at least Washington State. Wonder if there's a cap?

now that is nice to know, and on that line I will point out that does not make it legal to cross a double yellow (Even when there is no need.)

According to a quick search, both vermont and pennsylvania allow crossing the double yellow in a pass, when it is safe to do so.

Minnesota, Montana and Washington allow drivers to exceed the speed limit while passing on two lane roads.

While passing, Nice to know that, since I ride in both states. It is also legal to pass on the right in New York when the vehicle ahead is turning left and you have room to safely do so.

Does it say anything about crossing the double yellow when you are not passing?

There are several states that allow crossing the double Yellow as well.
