I appreciate your sermon and since I both deserved it and opened myself up to it I will just take my due rewards. I posted that video because it really shows 2 things: First is how something that seems relatively risk free can change at an instant-that's why we don't do stupid things on motorcycles. The second thing is to stay calm and in control as long as you can as most situation you can find a hole to ride out of if you stay cool.Well, while you've sorta admitted your "mistake", those double yellow lines are generally put there for a reason, and not observing them doesn't qualify as a "mistake". "Mistakes" can be forgiven, but a direct violation of the law, not so much. "A guy with my (your) experience should have known" it was dangerous, and a violation of the law. It could possibly have had dire consequences, as you almost found out, and if caught in the act, it would usually earn you a "performance award" and a fine. I wonder what that guy in the truck thought of your decision. It's stunts like these that give motorcyclists a bad name.
As a very young man, I earned a performance award for the very same thing, except in my. case there wasn't an oncoming vehicle in my path, just a Highway Patrol officer right behind me. I just couldn't take the oil burning exhaust fumes from the jalopy in front of me anymore - blue smoke boiling out from behind the car. The HP officer had no sympathy.
In the aviation community there's a saying - "There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots." It occurs to me that he same might be said of motorcyclists.
Actually I would like to thank @crazyarch for posting this, b/c it is a great reminder to us all, who are tempted every-now-and-then to do just that,The best thing you can do is take down the video as it serves no purpose other than to incite negative comments. Of which you should get many.
