can you claim a stoppie as an emergency maneuver... as long as they don't see you repeatedly doing them at every stop...?

Perfectly legal....full use of your lane. The question is covered in the LEO forum, and one of the LEOs even said he does the same thing. However, a dick of a cop can always pull some law out of his/her ass and improperly apply it. Doesn't matter to them if you get it dismissed. You still had to deal with it and they got to be a dick...err make their point.

Totally. Even when I'm just doing it regardless, I do notice the folks behind me leaving PLENTY of space.

I weave (gently) around manhole covers, HOV diamonds and anything painted like crosswalk stripes - only if purdent

Sort of like a game to keep you sharp. Just don't get carried away.

Weaving to warm up your tires I guess is only for NASCAR and F1

I call dibs on being the cop.

Best way to ensure you won't get tailgated...be a girl on a motorcycle

I know, I've watched your video's. I was referring to DasBroose, and it was kinda a joke, seems a bad one at that.

It has been my observation that folks tend to give me A LOT of space aka not tailgating, and I think it just falls into the sterotype that women can't drive and how scary it is to see one on a motorcycle is all.

I weave for pothole covers and other stuff when its wet, but I mostly do it for attention, every time I see someone waiting to turn left in front of me I will weave and aim my headlight straight for them for a second, might even flash high beam too. People notice you a lot more if you are moving like you are intoxicated.

I totally do this. It's like a game. There's a 4 mile stretch along lake Washington in Kirkland. If I can get all the way without hitting any manholes/various covers crosswalk paint, etc then it's a perfect score. Never got a perfect score yet, so i keep playing.
