This news makes me unhappy.

I ride on the 'Highway 59 HOV Speedway' every day now. I 'ninja' pass cars at every exit, and I typically cruise about 80. I don't know my top speed; if I am going to pass 10+ cars I might hit triples, but I rarely do. In fact the only time I've ever had the bike full throttle was on a back road. It was straight and flat- I think it topped out about 138 (no speedo).

I have seen cops stopped at exits ready to pull ppl over, but I have never been pulled over.

I have actually had people in cages PULL OVER to the side of the HOV so I could pass them; otherwise I don't pass on the shoulder- doesn't feel safe at all.

at 7am it's pretty empty, but theres a stretch between fuqua and the 610 exit that's pretty long and you can see all the way to the top of that hill so if you slow down at the bottom of the hill you can be doing 70 buy the time you get to the top.

i won't pass on the shoulder, pirellis aren't cheap and that's where all the road trash goes. learned that one the hard way...twice

a little courtesy gets you a long way though, when i get to a line of cars i slow down and don't ride their . throw a friendly wave to the first one to scoot over for ya and the rest seem to follow suit

I used to take the 59 n hov lane from porter to tidwell everyday the only time I have ever been stopped was at the exit I take, my gear matched the discription but the bike didnt so they let me go! I used to cruise behind the metro buses doing 80-90mph as long as you your not passing cars like crazy and wheeling and other things like that your good. I have also been passed by cops on the hov lane when I was cruising about 80-90mph! I miss having a bike hov lanes kicka$$ especaily after hours I used to take my yz80 to humble and sometimes the tag kart

Hmm...I think I need to get up earlier. I always have some slowpoke in front of me there. However at 6:30pm that stretch is often clear and, way back many centuries ago, I found out my POS tops out at 87mph with a tail wind. Sigh. Next bike may get me into trouble...

I've actually seen two traffic stops on the HOV lane before. One was a car and the other was a cruiser, and from the looks of it, the rider of the cruiser was getting a shiny new pair of steel bracelets put on him.
