well i'm not judging anyone, i let faster cars, bikes or what ever pass, that being said, specially on the bike, if i get caught, in a bad situation like this, i slow down, or turn off. i'm not going to put me in a bad situation to get killed, it ain't worth it, cause you just never know! glad you made it safe! and i agree people should be taught road etiquette, but just think of all the texters, drunks, and shit head drivers. you have to be aware at all times, cause there is no cure all, i believe you need to be responsible for your self! anyway, stay safe everyone!

I've been in the same position and simply pull off and chill out for a bit. The road will clear up and you can get on your way at your pace. The roads aren't yours or theirs, but ours together. Be patient, it goes a long way.

I like this!
Sounds like the guy who was upset, was a regular RideSmart trackday attendee!...

But, as I believe was stated, what if there's no where to stop/pit, and take the break?
Not all country/canyon roads will have countless places to drop a kickstand, and wait for the 'traffic' to settle or clear.

Yes we could have probably waited but that is not the point of this post. Unless it is some national event like bikers for babies ect. The safer way to ride is in smaller groups. I did pass in those sectors as I am sure my buddy did, but I should not have to listen to them lecture us because they created a rolling blockade.

I would not have had an excuse other than they were a rolling blockade. I do not really want them to move to the right either but that would have been nice. What they should have done is rider in smaller groups period, it just amazes me how many riders cannot understand the benefits of a smaller group of riders.

.... I came out while he was lecturing my buddy and I had to comment to him that it was basicaslly BS that we were even forced to pass a group of that size on a twisty mountain road because we wanted to ride a more brisk pace.

... He says there is no place to allow us to pass on a double yellow road.
He is correct. You are wrong.
Double yellow = NO PASSING.

Agreed.
Passing on a double yellow automatically puts the rider in the wrong.
If the vehicle(s) in front of you are traveling at the speed limit, obeying all traffic laws and are in the appropriate lane then case closed. Deal with it. If you choose to make illegal maneuver because you are inpatient then you are 100% in the wrong and anyone is has the right to call you out on it, especially if they feel your actions put others in harms way.

Am I saying to not ride like an ass? No...just be man enough to deal with the consequences.

Dragun... I blasted thru a bunch of Harleys last year for no good reason other than I could. I'm just saying usually everyone sees a situation from their perspective and not how their action affects others. Its become all about " me " and not making the world better for everyone.
