blocking all lanes 288S, legal?

so my buddy calls and asks if i want to goto the lone star flight museum, sure why not

we get on 288S intending on crossing over to 45 on hwy6

just as we get going south, a HUGE group of mostly cruisers, were talking like 200+ bikes, they had dudes in yellow vests leading and blocking then entrances and what not along w/ unmarked crown vics and lights. no biggie, we thought it was a funeral at first, but people were dressing in shorts and no gear of course.

and it wasn't the patriot guards

well then they block ALL 3 lanes heading south

the bikes are all in the center lane, but they have 3 bikes in the back w/ yellow vest, all the cars are freaking out, the group is going about 40mph, wreaking havoc on the following traffic.

i filter to the ft and get up the the leftmost rider, and he's making signs for me to back up and not pass and so on.

i asked(yelled cuz both our bikes are loud) how much longer and he yells out some hwy number i don't know it. by that time they are passing bw8.

so me and my friend exit bw8 and take that over

i can understand 1-2 lanes, but all then traveling at 40mph.........traffic was jacked up.

WTF is it legal to block all lanes?

If they had the police lights, and they're legitimately police, yah it's legal. Wonder what the event or group ride was for.

It's legal to drive/ride across all lanes at an unsafe speed in a big group?

If they had police escort then I'm sure there's nothing you can do.

There is a speed that you have to be at while on a Hwy, 40mph certainly doesn't fit in that area.

Not to sure but if it was something like an escort. I don't think much can be done to you for passing. Reason i say is my dad about 10 years so passed a big truck being escorted by leo, lights we're on. One of the bike officer's went up and pulled him over and my dad went off on him like there was no tomorrow. Not saying it was right but really cussed this cop out. The cop just walked back to his bike and left. So really don't know about that situation but just wanted to share that little story. We couldn't figure why he just left. Later in life I guess he figured what a dumbass:what:
