I'm not quite sure what you mean. Are you referring to the center turn lanes found on many of today's highways in urban areas?

Those yellow lines are what make the carpool lane. But in some areas like in the 22 fwy in Orange co, the carpool lane is designated with white striped lines. Same up North by Sacramento.
Officially the carpool lane stripes are 3 feet apart and yadda, yadda. A Friend beat a ticket because the lane as striped wasn't according to the official description. He had pictures and the Judge had to agree with him.
I've followed CHP officers doing the weave through traffic over the lines and had them follow me as I parted the traffic in front of us without getting a ticket.
Then again when you meet office diligent he may bust yo butt.

two solid yellow line between the carpool area(HOV) and same direction freeway to your right side, my question is between this two solid yellow line.
Book sez not cross the two solid yellow line, but does not say you can not go in between two yellow lines.
in some area are two yeloow and then 3 feet apart and again two yellow line , that is like a solid concrete block.
does it make sense?
Ride safe

That is going to be a state law, but I would tend to say you are not in a lane of traffic. So, the same laws that get you riding on the shoulder or an a sidewalk would probably apply.
Again, it will definitely vary from state to state and maybe judge/prosecutor to judge/prosecutor because it will be a mater of interpretation.

Jay Leno joked years ago the space between the white gore stripe and the first of the two yellow lines was the designated motorcycle lane.

This is going to be very state-specific, and should be spelled out in the state statute(s) related to HOV lanes. It shouldn't take too much Googling to identify the appropriate statute number and give it a read. Another resource is your state's highway patrol or a local police/sheriff traffic unit, as they work with that stuff day-in and day-out.

As for my state, any HOV/carpooling lanes are designated with a single white line and a diamond painted within the lane of travel so it's a non-issue here. However, our HOV lanes are able to be used by motorcycles.

Why not call up the local CHP office and ask them? Maybe call around to a few and see if the answers concur.
