The MSF teaches staggered and not side-by-side riding IIRC.
The only people who do it around here are motor cops and, as adv refers to them, "pirates."
er ... if you are overtaking you aint supposed to hang around alongside ...
FWIW if I reckon it's safe >> I do the pass ... if it's dodgy >> I wait. I don't pass in the same lane unless they signal me by and move over enough. It doesn't bother me if I'm slowed down by traffic and if that causes me to get to my destination a minute or less later so what?
I hate staggered formation
to me it is stupid and dangerous. And I wouldn't ride next to someone unless it was an actual parade eg down main st.
