Well, in merca, where laws are open to perception and discretion, just how "safe" it was doesn't even matter... It really doesn't matter if YOU think it was safe or not, but rather how the officer policing for a profit see's it.

You don't have to stop at a stop sign on private property either, but I'm sure there's another "law" like reckless driving they can write you up on private property for.

Yup,

If someone wants to get by,let them.

I use it also on my other bike, the one I have now and those I have owned previously.

Doesn't even have to be a twisty road. If I'm just riding along and enjoying my groove at whatever speed, I wave them by. Since I check my mirror and don't have a dick size complex, it's really not any problem for me.

Usually folks appreciate it.
You clearly have not been provided the standard HD RIDER memo, and don't fit in with your peers. You really shouldn't be allowed to pilot the HD. Not a good fit.

Good on ya....

No interest in rallying ANYwhere near the Dragon. Mancation end of this month. Looks like we are heading to Blowing Rock, NC. Ton of twisty, scenic riding there and Little Switzerland, NC. Dragon, not so much.

Good luck finding work man.
