No one owes you anything on either road.
That's not being self-righteous. It's just seeing the world for what it is. I don't think that Harley wagon trains have any right blocking traffic and having Road Captains block intersections like they're a parade.
I also don't think that anyone should have to make way for a guy on a sporting machine.
You want a parade, buy a permit and do it downtown. You want a trackday, go to a track. Otherwise, ride and be polite, enjoy the BRP and the dragon, and accept that sometimes you can't ride balls out because there are other people on the planet.
I find it funny that people treating the road like a track have the nerve to get mad at people treating a scenic byway like a scenic byway. I get it if someone is riding below the speed limit but at or right above the limit ? Pure selfishness. No one on a public road is obligated to ensure your ability to treat the road as a public race course nor should they be. Those that purposely block traffic while riding under the limit ? They are equally selfish.
