A comment in that practical motoring article says someone had his bike impounded for splitting on the perth freeway. I suspect there is more to the story though, like splitting at 140 kph stood up on the back wheel.

Not sure that is an authoritative source. Basically all comes down to the discretion of the police officer on whether you are being safe, whether you were straddling the lanes for too long, whether you indicated sufficiently etc. Generally doing it past a police car or especially bike is a poor risk. Very easy to be given an infringement notice, and even if you are technically legal, having to go to court to prove it is probably a worse penalty than paying the fine. I suspect doing it in a car you are much more likely to be pulled over than on a bike.

The Tango will be licensed in WA as a car, not a motorcycle.

So lane filtering will be illegal...

The laws in WA are the same for cars and motorcycles aren't they? Some other states have a special filtering law, but not WA.
