Nope! Came close twice because of backing up in gravel but I've always been able to muscle it around if it ever came down to it. I actually had to ride through sand a few weeks ago (which was terrifying). lol

Picture a 3 lane highway/ parking lot that moves at 60mph then stops, then 80mph then stops then 30mph then stops...

Not a good situation for someone on a motorcycle

Nope, thats not good at all.i have drove on those many times, just not with bike, with my semi-truck, its not pleasant!! And if i am loaded, its pain in the bud.
From 0 to 60 mph i neeg to change 10 gears up and from 60 to 0 mph have to down shift 10 gears, if you dont want to eat your brakes!
I went to Jacksonville Fl one time and i like it! I was driving on I-75 south all the time and in Fl i took I-10 toward Jax. That was lovely interstate and not to many cars and wish can drove it with bike.
