did you read all the documents enclosed in that pdf? The guy clearly believes that bikes think they are above the law:

now stands and not provide for additional “exceptions” to a

A significant percentage of the car drivers disagree that motorcycle drivers have the “extra” rights to weave
between lanes
the car driverpopulation sustains substantial mental stress from the continuing “lane weaving” antics of typical
motorcycle drivers
having the guidelines removed is his opening salvo. then since its not specifically expressed as being legal, he will just rally to make illegal. It cant be that hard especially if there is nothing to overturn
