Ease up, Mark - it's just crossing the double-yellow... it's not like someone forgot to countersteer, or suggested using a car tire on the rear...

1. There is no need
2. It is unlawful to do so
3. Learn how to ride and you wouldn't need to...

The lanes are directional. If you are traveling the wrong way in the other lane just because "why shouldn't I" You are an poseur that has no business riding a motorcycle (or driving for that matter)

-Dry conditions (I general avoid travelling along any painted lines in the wet).

-Clear visibility of the road ahead

-No traffic entering the road

-No gravel or those stupid fucking rumble divots the DOT have decided to put in some roads

-Only cross at points where the curve allows you to naturally move back onto your side of the road. i.e early to set up a right hand turn, or at the apex on a left hand turn. In both instances you need visibility beyond the turn, or at least beyond the apex. For right turns you look to the apex and beyond to determine if you can cross and carry more speed, for left you see beyond the apex to see if you can straighten sooner after the apex and accelerate harder.

I've ridden the Dragon once both ways and know most turns are pretty blind.....around where I live you have a lot of open sweepers and you can find yourself safely spending a lot of time over the yellow line.

I am sorry but I can't seem to let go of your statement" safely spending a lot of time over the yellow line". WTF?? I would think with that attitude riding a road where it is imperative that you do not cross the yellow at any time might pose a challenge but since you have ridden the dragon " once,both ways" you sound like you got it nailed.....please feel free to dispense more sound riding advice.
