Re: Passed on Left by Fellow Rider
Yes , the pass was on my left in my lane. The other lane had oncoming traffic, and there was no shoulder of any kind.
No, I was not riding with anyone. The cruisers had been holding me back for 10 miles - most of which was on one of the nicest twisty roads around, though this was after we got on the farmland flats. I couldn't get enough room to pass them, strung out as they were. I definitely wanted to be going much faster - they were under the speed limit and slowed down giving me slow down hand signals whenever we passed an intersection.
I later ran across Grandpa in his Town Car going that slow - but I respect Grandpa.
Yes, it was illegal as hell - and so is lane-splitting in Washington.
