Well... Left laning isnt illegal, so quitcher bitchen.

However, speeding, and depending on the officer passing on the right is.

So just get compliant and STFU. You had your chance to vote on it but didnt, or, you support the passing of laws in the absence of putting it to a popular vote thus the state went ahead without your opinion and wrote it into law anyway.

More subservient and being compliant and less with your communist uprising BS propaganda.


Learn to fit in.

Oh yeah. And learn to look at things from a economics standpoint and you'll start seeing how or what laws are being enforced.

It's all to keep you safe... Commi!

Same law here and same lack of enforcement.
Edit: Although, having now looked at the chart linked-to by lethe, the "Keep Right ... " signs may be DOT signs and not actually law.

And it's too easy to throw out a case of you were following THE LAW by NOT speeding, but you were holding up traffic making them pass you?


That's BS and a waste of inc, paper and the courts precious time.

I know, just you said it wasn't illegal and I knew in a bunch of places it technically is.
Probably more of a chance getting in trouble for something dangerous like spitting on the sidewalk though

I've never seen it as a big deal on my motorcycle because it is so easy to pass everything on the road
if your paying attention to your riding while on a motorcycle.

Relax twist the throttle and enjoy"

OMG, I've never considered that. Dozens of Hardleys/Hardley Clones being toted in a 60' "800-Haul-Bike" trailer? I knew that people trailered bikes on to events like that, but I had no idea it is done on such a grand scale.

I've never even considered trailering to an event like that, since the trip is half the fun. Guess I'm too Old-School.

Oh I got around them, but it damn sure wasn't easy.

Traffic was bumper to bumper in the middle lane, less in the right lane, and the GROUP riders in the left.

This shit went on for 200 miles.

And what part of the country are you in that makes passing packs of riders and doing it easy???

i have to admit i have thought about it but mostly so i could get there in 1 shot and then enjoy the area and not spend 1/2 of my vaca time getting out of the slush and rain of early spring in NE. I have made 2 trips south and it started with 2 days to get south enough to start to feel warm and 2 days going back to the cold. All of that just on the highway.. talk about dull.

Sitting in the left lane, OR IN ANY lane- and being totally oblivious to your surroundings is just plain ignorant, equates to a complete lack of courtesy, and in no way can realistically be called "safe".


I got stuck behind a "rolling roadblock" this weekend- a guy and his wife on their HDs, traveling at 35-40 MPH, 150 feet apart from one another on a 2 lane road that most folks do 60 on- the speed limit is 45. With 3 or 4 cars or trucks and us, on a bike, stacked up behind them, they puttered on down the road, completely unaware of who or what was behind them.

WTF are mirrors for?
Do these FFs even LOOK in their mirrors?
Not as far as I know, they don't.

If you're one of these assholes that camp out in the left lane because you think it's your "right" to do so, then don't fuckin cry when I run your slow, stupid ass over. Fuck you, and your mom, AND the horse that dragged you both from your own little world into the real world.

Lead.
Follow.
Or get the hell out of the way.

Being on the road as much as I am (albeit just in cars and bikes), I'd have to say that your ranks are getting infiltrated with some pretty poor drivers these days too. Probably not to the same percentage as what you find in cars and light trucks but still plenty worrisome.
