I've really never understood why anyone would have an issue with letting someone riding at a faster pace by, so maybe you can explain why it hurts so much. I don't have a problem with slow riders, but it truly pisses me off when they feel the need to go out of their way to make it difficult or impossible to pass. Why would you want to ride with someone who obviously wants to get around you, agitated on your back wheel?

The wings were probably doing the limit. Those are all public roads. No one is obliged to get out of your way and let you proceed at whatever pace you like.

If you want to ride fast, go do a track day. On public roads this is what you have to contend with and sometimes be subject to, so maybe adjust your worldview a bit.

No one owes you a clear line or a pulloff on a public road.
