6 posts in this topic

I was rideing the motorcycle to work last night and I was in the right hand lane I was comming up on two other cars in the middle and left lane and I had this other person on a bike come flying by me on the left side of me, in my lane he passed all three of us in my lane is this a legal move? I just wondering I know it wasnt the safest move but this is the first time it has happend to me and I was supprised when he came up behind me.

by the way I ride a 07 Yamaha V-Star 650 \:\)

I'm not a cop or a lawyer, but I'd say that was not a legal move.

Legal or not, it's surely not the safest thing to do.

Not legal without your consent.

169.974 -Motorcycle, motor scooter, motor bike. Table of contents for Chapter 169 (e) No person shall operate a motorcycle between lanes of moving or stationary vehicles headed in the same direction, nor shall any person drive a motorcycle abreast of or overtake or pass another vehicle within the same traffic lane, except that motorcycles may, with the consent of both drivers, be operated not more than two abreast in a single traffic lane.

He must have just moved here from California. grin.gif Back in the day they had crazy laws for motorcycles. Lane splitting was legal. Whether it is legal or not, talk about unsafe practices that give motorcyclists a bad rap.

Selfish SOB. No matter how fast you are going, it's not fast enough for someone else.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
