I once saw someone claim on a forum that in the UK you can get a traffic penalty for NOT filtering to the front when you could. I don't think they knew what they were talking about. I can't find any evidence for this after reading as much traffic code as I can find. In fact a number of people have said that in your on-road riding test that while you can filter where appropriate, they won't fault you if you don't, so it's better not to as it's kind of a minefield as far as the number of details they could fault you on if you do.

Hey! Here's your chance, a letter to the editor sure cant hurt. The more people know about it, includes cagers, the better chance we have of getting this through. Don't wait for someone else, step up.

Ditto to what Akdawg said. It seems like a pain, but fifteen minutes of your time to write a letter really does make a difference ... especially when EVERYONE take the time to help.

Please help! More info at laneshareoregon.com

Didn't older Harleys (maybe modern ones, too) have a cylinder deactivation feature by rolling the throttle forward at a stop, to keep the potential of overheating lower?
That's the newer Harleys deactivate the rear cylinder, adds new meaning to the term "Milwaukie Vibrator". The old ones just overheated and drooled oil

Haha! Milwaukee Vibrator. Yeah, that must feel unusual to turn a cylinder off & then back on again.

Does it all by itself when the computer senses an overheat condition. First time it came on had visions of pushing "Dumbo" to the side of the road (I-84 Portland) and calling the tow truck.

Interesting - I didn't know that it was automatic.

When I rented a Harley in Hawaii a few years ago, I was shown to roll the throttle forward. Only had the opportunity to try it for a moment, then had to go, and didn't do so again.

Next steps ... please contact your State Representative, asking for their support on HB2314. We’ve made it easy:

1. Go to: laneshareoregon.com/#get-involved

2. Enter your address and name to find your state legislators.

3. Select your Representative, and click the "Send an Email" button. A note will auto-populate your email. Feel free to customize the note, tell them about yourself, and why YOU support HB2314. (We recommend adding your address to the email; it helps your legislators know you're in their district.) Then SEND the email.

4. Repeat (4) for your State Senator.

It only takes a few minutes, but it will make a big difference for HB2314. When Legislators tell us “I’ve been hearing good things about HB2314 from my constituents!” that’s how we win their support. You can learn more about the bill and reasons to support it at laneshareoregon.com.

Thanks to everyone who submitted written testimony for the Feb 20 public hearing. If you're interested you can watch the hearing here: Joint Committee On Transportation 2019-02-20 5:00 PM - Feb 20th, 2019

We will keep you posted on next steps. Thank you for helping out!

Checking Oregon Legislative website just now. Seems there's nothing scheduled past the 2/20 Transportation committee hearing?? Time to bug legislators to request movement?

So I can assume the “call to action” that the AMA sent did it’s usual good job in contacting these people for me and conning me in its’ inimitable Radar O’Reilly-like way to sign.

Good deal, knew that continuing AMA membership would pay for itself.

The ONLY feedback I have ever sent AARP is to get more like the AMA. Do the heavy lifting, break it down into simple English that your constituents CAN read and understand what they’re signing and then fill in the auto-letter to suit and submit for signature.
Takes all of about 2 minutes to read through most of the garbage at the federal level and sometimes a bit more for State, but Man is it convenient. And it gets your voice heard.

I know I sound like a shill for the AMA but seriously for the Political clout it’s worth the 50.00 a year to get your voice heard and you even get a little pin every year. I already get most of the discounts in one way or another so if the discounts are what you’re after haha, but the political action is second to none.

Representative McKeown seems to be holding the bill up in committee. One person being able to stop a bill is an affront to our system of government, in my opinion. She needs (polite) encouragement to allow the bill to progress, emails, letters, calls, meetings, and getting your own Rep and Senator to talk to her about it helps too. If a committee vote is allowed, it'll probably pass to the floor, we just have to get her to allow the vote.

The Oregon Legislature website frequently doesn't work for me, here's her email: Rep.CaddyMcKeown@oregonlegislature.gov

The ability for one person to kill a bill is pretty bad. We had it happen in WA last year with Rep Clibborn. She has since retired and her replacement seems a bit more M/C friendly.
