Common Riding Courtesy

You would think a lot of courteous riding is common sense but I would guess some people don't think that far ahead.

I don't have time to think of all the things that apply right now but y'all can add your input.

Basically, I noticed a few things last night and, not that I haven't ever seen it happen, I just want to bring it to attention. Keep in mind, this isn't a BIG deal (even though it could be on a situational basis) nor am I trying to in any way, I just want people to think about it a little more. . .if that's not asking for too much.

A few things that bother me.

-When you are riding side by side with someone @ Freeway speeds in their lane or the closet spot in the next lane over. Uncool.

-When you speed past me in the next lane over, but then slow down to where I pass you back up. Stay in front or behind, pretty simple.

-When you pass someone in the SAME lane going at least 10 mph faster. Not cool at all!

That's all for now. If you ride a Fiat R6, you should read this and think about it

it REALLY bugs me when you are turning and someone tries to pass mid-turn... on the track that's all good, but when you're on the road - not so cool

My input??? you need new riding buddies. or do like me and ride solo, that way only person you can blame is yourself.

- If we are riding same lanes and staggered please stay back for reaction time. (5 bikes) If i dont know you give it more space.

I was once told by a very experienced rider not to worry about somebody riding up on me in my lane. But- riding with groups has taught me that not everybody lives by this rule.

I have seen somebody ride up on another rider and hit him, causing an accident. So I agree- UNCOOL- no lane sharing!

What you posted here is unclear? where do you want them?

I stay in the same lane for the most part but keep it to where I can see the other rider using their mirror if they are in front of me.
I think he means if he's in the right side of the fast lane a person on another bike shouldn't pace him in the left side of the middle lane b/c then they are as close as if they were side by side in the same lane

I have never seen a S body Fiat R6. I could be wrong but I am fairly sure there is no such thing.
