Exclamation A Friendly Reminder………………

To all the newbie’s

Do NOT ride is the middle of your lane.
And if you do Ride DON’T STOP in the middle of the lane at a RED LIGHT.
I was on my way back to work from FedEx today around 4:30pm when I saw a guy on a 2005 GSXR-600 (Blue&White) on Fondren coming from 59s and as he stopped at the intersection of Fondren & Bellaire to turn left on Bellaire he stopped in the middle of his lane in the OIL. I did tell him to move over next time he stopped at a RED light to the left or right side of the lane.


Ride hard and Ride safe

Kinda w/ Blanco on this one... if you can't fathom why oily tires would be a bad thing, you're gonna get what you've got coming.

honestly they ride in the middle cause they cant hold a line. i will admit to riding in the center on country backroads but some of those are in need of repair and center is safer. just look at the road you are on to find the best riding position

I dont agree^. They do it because they dont know any better. Riding city streets stop light to stop light in the canter of a lane has nothing to do with holding a line. Its lack of experience and knowledge. , I will go a step further and say stay to the left of a lane most of the time in city driving. The ac condensation drips from the passenger side of most cars. This means oil AND water will most likely wet the passenger side of the lane in stop and go traffic.

On this line of thinking you might as well bring up that the left hand lane in city driving is dangerous due to people making right hand turns into parking lots and people entering the roadway or feeder into that left lane.

Need to correct. When traveling in the right lane you face dangers of traffic making sudden stops or pulling out

When riding in right lane, stay left of center. When in left, right of center. Called lane blocking, but I am not sure they teach it nowadays.

Another reason to stay out of the middle at a light is so you can pull up if the guy behind you doesn't appear to be stopping. I always checked my mirrors until at least one car was stopped behind me; otherwise, I'm making sure I don't get killed

I was taught this in the MSF course. Maybe said rider is riding dirty, or if he did take the MSF course, the instructor did not mention it. I learned a lot that wasn't in the book from my instructor.

When you stop 1st at a light, keep tapping your brakes until the car behind you stops, this way you can prevent being rear ended by some moron not paying attention
