well, it's expected. I hate the new bikers these days. NO respect for common sense while driving. I almost took a few out on our local backroads.

So, only 1 rx7 crossing the double yellow lines. That's good.

i rode the line a little bit and probably crossed it some just cause it was my first time on the dragon and didnt wanna drop a tire off. that truck and car is crazy especially on blind corners. I almost hit a biker head on on hell bender guy was in the middle of my lane. Organ donors is all i can say

oil drain off the turbo dripping onto the exhaust manifold. the worst part is, the leak is tiny and the only way for me to fix it is take everything off!

as far as crossing the line, the way i look at it, its alright if its not a blind turn.

It's NEVER okay to cross the line. On Saturday night the mini bikes were there and if anyone crossed the yellow lines anywhere they could have killed someone.
I was almost hit by a bike weaving between some RX-8's. If I hadn't been just cruising the Dragon I would have been hit by him.

i was up there sat night, and last i checked riding mini bikes on a public road is illegal, especially if you are using flashlights for headlights. but i knew i was gonna catch hell for that statement.

I don't see a huge problem if you can see a 100 yards (or whatever) and you go over a bit. There's a time when it's dangerous and a time when it's not. Knowing the difference is key.

This is just how they do it where I'm from. Nobody stays on their side until they need to be (blind turns or when someone is coming). Hell, a ton of the roads don't even have lines.

I'm going to have to agree with this. Granted, I don't want to say it's OK to endangre the minibikes... but they're assuming a huge risk by just doing what they're doing. I think it's pretty idiotic, but that's their choice.

The way I look at it is, most of the time you don't go over the yellow line taking curves that go to the right. And theres no clean or good way of making your speed though those turns any faster.

So why go over the lines when taking curves that go to the left, since there are ppl taking photos of you, ppl bitch at you when they see these photos or are behind you or infront of your car and see you, and there might be a vehicle in the other lane.

IMO, They are right to call out those "line crossers" and call them "asshole drivers."
US-129 isn't a race course.
I'm surprised we don't get bitched at for speeding on US-129!

After I passed the mini bikes Saturday night I had thoughts of coming around a corner and finding one in front of me poking along and mowing him over. And after the cop at the lookout I decided it was time to slow down the rest of the way to the bridge. Then again, on the ride back it was business as usual.

You never cross the yellow line unless there is a good reason. As in being waved around or the likes. The speed limit use to be 50 up there... most people can't handle 30. I was amazed looking through all the pics from various sites at how many people were on, over and way over the line.

I do think I saw more bikes pushing the line and/or going over than I've ever seen before this year. And I had 2 close calls with a pickup truck and motor home parked in the middle of the road Friday and a truck/trailer rig on Saturday that I almost nailed in one corner since he was all in my lane. If a biker hadn't warned me at the last minute I would have been toast.

Seriously. I hope that corner isn't as blind as it appears...

IMO...with the way all our cars are designed to handle, there is no need to ever cross the double yellow line on a road, unless someone just can't drive... if u want to always stay to the inside of a curve so you feel like ur crossing lanes, take it to a track
