Want to move a little? Cool. But please don't leave the roadway to make room for me.

I've been splitting lanes since the early eighties, and rode through the motorcycling boom of the nineties when there were more motos on the road. I didn't need it then, and don't need or want it now.

I agree with this completely but I’ll take the swerve out of the way over the old school 90’s swerving to block me any day!

I'm in the boat that I wish cars would keep doing what they're doing. There's enough room for me to fit.

If they swerve over real quick, it's a red flag to me. Maybe they're not moving for me, maybe they got spooked by something and they might swerve right back too far the other way. Just drive normal and I'll get through. If there's not enough room, I'll wait til there is.

You can come over here with your logic. I want drivers around me to act calmly and predictably. I can totally see some reactionary swerving because they’ve spotted me.... right into the guy splitting the other side. “Immediately hug the far edge of the lane if you see a motorcycle approaching from the rear” said no statute or drivers handbook ever. I like being acknowledged... with a howdy finger

Perhaps you missed the sarcasm in my post. If you scroll up a ways, you'll see that I stated pretty much the exact same thing that I quoted... hence my sarcasm.

Totally did miss it! Also am just noticing this is/was an R.I.P. thread... sorry... there’s probably a better place to have this discussion.
