If I cross the double yellow for any reason other than the two listed "I" AM messing up. If it causes a crash, it is on ME, no one else, and I could be called the idiot for riding over my head!

LOL, you edited out 90% of the post and 70% of the sentence to take 14 words and make them completely out of context.

I never said I didn't respect them....I said they don't respect a yellow line.

Anyone can delete half a post, quote it and completely change it's meaning.

How about I delete most of your post, leave the words 'Pot' and 'for you?' in quotes and accuse you of trying to deal drugs?

Whatever.

I felt stupid (more than usual)


now I try to think that maybe there IS a reason for them other than training wheels

not always successful though

how about this post where YOU type profusely about YOUR lack of respect for the double yellow?

-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.
emphasis added

like I was showing, you think others make the road dangerous because of their lack of respect for the double yellow, but previously you demonstrate YOUR lack of respect for the double yellow.

thus

pot

Kettle



'nuff said have a wonderful day straightening your local roads
