Your buddy did it THREE times because he went back to look for a rider from your group? That's just pushing your luck. And if you are lectured iabout it, accept it because passing in double yellow is not legal.

I have passed a group of Harleys in double yellow before. And I agree that such a large group is a pain in the ass and I wish they would break up into smaller groups. But if I pass them in double yellow, I do it at my own peril and I have to accept any consequences.

Just stick a tire pump in their front tire spokes. That'll get 'em off the road. Oh wait...wrong movie and wrong kind of bike.

As a few people on here have said, you passed on a double yellow. You gave the wing guys something valid to bitch about. Etiquette doesn't outweigh the law, so your complaint about them not easing to the right doesn't stand up against their complaint. I'm not against the occasional double yellow passes, but I know they're illegal. So if I found myself in your situation, I might have leap-frogged my way through as we'll. But I probably would have just given them a quick "sorry about that" and went on about my business.

Also, new riders on big, massive Gold Wings shouldn't be riding anywhere that one or two passing bikes makes them nervous.
