I rode (car) with a guy once that did that, it's all I could do to keep from screaming  :yikes: .   Very very uncomfortable ride.  And you are correct, he was totally oblivious to drivers passing him on the right giving mean glares, fingers, honking a horn, flashing lights, etc...  I'm thinking that maybe in a past life, they lived where the steering wheel was on the right side.

I think that is prevalent in many places.

It is interesting how many people believe that if they are going the speed limit, it is their "right" to be the in left [passing lane] and hold up traffic for miles.  They know they are "right" and are going to stay right next to someone in the other lane going the same speed and enforce their stance on everyone else..... and then some of the people they **** off start doing very dangerous stuff (use your imagination... lights, honking, tailgating, passing on the the shoulders or exit/ramp lanes, etc).

Other people I guess are just completely oblivious.

My brother some years ago was at a traffic school where someone in the class was proud of the fact that they like enforcing the speed limit by doing that. Ironic that this a**hole was in a traffic class for speeding. Luckily the cop teaching the class told him it was not his (the students) job to enforce the speed limit and that it was dangerous.

I've been known to work my way in front of these a'holes, then slow down until they get pissed and finally move over into the right lane.  I then speed away with a smile.  My work here is done! I don't do it on the bike though.

Back in the day of pagers (no cameras on any I knew of) A couple of taps to the rear bumper at speed convinced even the most stubborn that it was probably in their best interest to move aside. I know, Iknow "two wrongs don't make a right" but they sure did move right! I miss those days, but mainly cause I had hair back then.  >:(

I have to admit I have done that myself, too, a few times.  Also not on the bike...

Two wrongs don't make a right.... but it can sure feel good to be the occasional deliverer of karma.

It's not two wrongs if you're rightly correcting a wrong.

2 wrongs don't make a right, but 3 lefts do.



Oh, and that was just a geometric statement, not a political one :P

Glucometers are calibrated for capillary blood, not venous blood. Eating more calories than your body burns causes you to gain weight. The poop from Canada geese blends well with springtime grass. Do not store slippery ceramic items on other slippery ceramic items at angles that produce movement. Cold air over warm water produces clouds and sometimes snow in May. My in-laws are idiots.

People who pull into a busy gas station and act like they've never filled the car/bike before.  Fumble around looking for the credit card, stare at the pump for awhile.  Slowly go through the menus.  etc.  I'm usually buttoning up and leaving before some of these morons have a gallon into the vehicle.
