Wut is this thread 'bout again?
Exactly. See what I mean? Who would want to join in an environment or activity with participants like this?
No wonder the numbers are declining. I remember when it was a much closer society, and we all had each others backs. Oh well.
Good news is: There are still a few of us left, making a small part of it meaningful.
Cheer up, and try to find some fulfilling happiness in life. It works.

You are by far one of the most toxic participants on this forum prophet, so please dont try and make out that somehow you and your ilk are the last bastion of motorcycling decency
As long as they don't run in to me, I could care less when or where someone passes me.
Obviously the passer was a Wally & a Wanker all folded into one!
In my experience even Track Days tell you to only pass on the outside.
This is because some riders aren't nearly as proficient as they think they are so when they can't hold their line they are then in the line of the individual they are passing.
If they are on the outside they only mess themselves up (at least much more likely)
Not once you get out of the novice/intermediate groups. Usually the advanced group is is more like a free practice.
These rules vary wildly from org to org in my experience.
Amen. This says it all.
ESPECIALLY... on the anonymous Internet!
I can honestly say with hand on my heart that I'm rubbish.
I am much more likely to make an inside pass when track riding.
I was out riding for fun this am. Had some faster riders come up from behind so i slowed down, moved over and waved them by. 2 of the three passed on one wheel. Now that is uncalled for, and wheelie skills do not necessarily translate into corner skills. Pissed me off so I decided to see if I could keep up with them.
Which was not a big problem until we got out of the twisty part and they went to warp speed.
Good, now I have someone to keep the police busy, and I enjoyed my ride more. Damn Missouri lowered the speed limit to 45 on one section.
We call those types of riders "Bait Bikes". Locals know the roads and hidden cop areas, "tourists" who wish to ride like absolute fools keep them busy, and contribute to the revenue stream.
