Thanks to all for their wisdom but i got to say to some of you, get you shorts out of your crack Rachell. I thought this was a GS form but i see some of you guys don't ride your GS very hard. They were on stretched out Busaes, ill take that bet on some curves. I saw them when i was going through a small town as they were fueling up. Here they come, #1 and #2 were hell bent to pass me and the third bike left a gap so lets go. I ride my own ride so if you see some old bastard comming up behind you ill use my signals if it makes you feel any safer.

Guy, if riders are coming up behind you let them pass and then if you want get on their tail and pass them. Don’t be a jerk.
BTW the GS forum is GSpot.

Oh, it is really annoying when a slower rider blocks a pass.

He never passed anyone nor stayed with them. All three riders passed him and then were gone apparently. He is not bragging how he stayed on their ass

The Op was on his own, how narrow are the roads over there, so that a single motorcycle can block an other one coming from behind?

Oh my, you should have just stayed out of it.

Well first off numbnuts, this ain't a GS "form" (perhaps you meant forum).

Second, you said they were sport bikes. So now you admit they were Busa's, not sport bikes, and then they were stretched which makes them the equivalent of a '60's muscle car when comes to handling. YOU THE MAN!!!

To the OPs dismay...this thread started in GSpot and was kicked here. Then it went to hell in a hand basket. Oops.

Omertà[1] (/ɵˈmɛrtə/; Italian pronunciation: [omerˈta]) is a popular cultural attitude and code of honour that places heavy importance on a deep-rooted "code of silence", non-cooperation with authorities, and non-interference in the illegal (and legal) actions of others. It originated and remains very common in Southern Italy where Mafia-type criminal organizations such as the Cosa Nostra, 'Ndrangheta, Sacra Corona Unita, and Camorra are strong. It also exists to a lesser extent in certain Italian-American neighborhoods where the Italian-American Mafia has influence and other Italian ethnic enclaves in countries where there is the presence of Italian organized crime (e.g. Germany, Canada, and Australia).

I would ride with the OP any day. I love riding with crazy old fast guys. I follow and watch the action. It usually is exciting.

We have all kinds of roads; I have know idea what kind of road the OP was on. Generally you just pull to the right so faster riders can pass safely. Then you can get on their tail and show them how to ride if your ego needs too.

If you really wanted to make a sport bike rider blink you, with your wife on the back, would have caught the sport bikes in the twisties. Then passed them on the outside in a hairpin corner on your way to leaving them in your exhaust. To rub it in you would have stopped at the cafe at the top of the road and had your helmet, gloves and leathers off before they showed up.

Oh my god, it just keeps getting better. Not only were you being a douche, now you tell us that these 'sportbikes' that passed you were on stretched 'Busas. Hahaha. You really should have just kept quiet and let this thread die.
