In the UK a double white line does not mean no overtaking - it means
don't cross the line (except in certain circumstances). Overtaking of
one motorcycle by another motorcycle is not in itself prohibited by the
double white line. The exception for overtaking slow moving vehicles
basically only works for bicycles, horses and road maintenance vehicles
moving at less than 10mph.
