The Ass hole in the white car looked solo and shouldn't have been in the HOV lane anyway. I have 7 years left before I retire and gtfo of CA. I'm going to a state where I can ride and live without all this traffic and when you wave, people wave back with all five fingers.

Funny when i left Texas and moved to South Carolina in the mid-80's i was driving into St.George and a guy waved at me. I pulled over to see if he wanted something. He said no people around here wave all the time to other drivers. I thanked him and told him that would be something i would have to get used too...Very friendly folks there...

Somewhat off-topic: One observation, 1 week into riding again, after just over a 20 year riding break, is that cel phone ubiquity is the bane of a motorcyclists existence. Fairly certain I'm preaching to the choir here but it seems every car that's tried to take my lane involves a cel phone / distracted driver.

My state (WA) has laws on the books that should in theory minimize their use in a moving vehicle, but you sure wouldn't know it. Looking forward to vehicle interlock devices that work in conjunction with phones to limit their capabilities. It simply must happen, not only for motorcycle riders but for the safety of everyone.

Yep, out here in Cali these folks can't live without a phone in their hand...

I was taking my son to PHX airport in the HOV lane and following a 'solo' in his car. Came over a rise, and there's an AZ State Trooper on the shoulder, so "Mr Solo" immediately moves right, out of the HOV lane, but the Trooper's lights go ON and he was pulled over.

YES!!!

A travel-lane restricted to "High Occupancy Vehicle".

Most places that means at least 2 in the vehicle, OR a motorcycle.
