Passing on the right is legal in texas for both cars and bikes I saw it on another site the other day when i find the link i'll post it up...

Texas statute # 545.057

a) An operator may pass to the right of another vehicle only if conditions permit safely passing to the right and:

2) the operator is:
(A) on a highway having unobstructed pavement not occupied by parked vehicles and sufficient width for two or more lines of moving vehicles in each direction; or
(B) on a one-way street or on a roadway having traffic restricted to one direction of movement and the roadway is free from obstructions and wide enough for two or more lines of moving vehicles.

That says nothing of passing on the shoulder.
