Default Take care bikers.

I passed to wrecks involving motor cycles in the last 24 hours, first one the kid was riding like an ass, swerving though traffic, tailgating and trying to intimidate other cars when he passed me, and 20 miles later his bike was wedged underneath a pickup truck, the other was on the opposite side of the highway, and the car involved looked like it rolled several times, the bike was nothing but parts strewn across the highway. Then as soon as I come into Michigan this morning I see another kid pulling his bike off the shoulder onto the expressway, cut off 2 cars and break into a wheelie, by the time his front tire hit the ground he was nothing but a dot on the horizon.
Take care, and remember, you ain't got shit to prove to Evil Knievel.

Last week a group riding side by side, right on the center line, down a country road.
Like playing chicken with on coming traffic. I think I almost clipped a mirror.

Side by side looks cool, dangerous as hell. Nowhere to go!!

if you clipped a rider, who would be at fault if there was an accident? I love being a showoff in life but public roads are not the best place to prove how big your clock weights are.

I'm in my lane, 55 mph, full size truck with no where to go. MDOT lets the shoulder turn into a minefield.

Should I stop and pull over for the impromptu motorcycle parade pass?

Share the road

I intentionally hug the center line when these idiots are riding their parade down the highway. My 8,000 pound truck doesn't need to move over so they can sail their handlebars in my lane. Either way, the bike will move.

I don't need to hug anything, I drive a 60' long 80,000lb rig...
