    Funny...the HOV lanes in and around the metro here, are specifically open to bikes, vehicles with two or more occupants and buses.

    Same here in Texas. Bikes have always been able to use the HOV lanes.

    Hi Dave,

    It is legal for motorcycles to use the HOV lanes here in CA too. The law was changed many years ago making it legal. However, you can enter and exit the HOV lanes only in designated areas. My whole case was based on the fact that I was splitting the lane and never entered (or exited) the HOV lane.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    Good job. I watch CHP officers on their bikes ride that line all the time. I've actually had one get behind me and follow me thru it with me and give me a nod when I moved over.

    I tend to stay away from LEO's now. Just had a nice run in this afternoon which led to a not so nice visit with the sheriffs.
