Lane Sharing with Other Motorcyclists You Don't Know
(East Bay, CA)
I bring this up because I was taught by my BF--with almost 30 years of riding experience--that pulling up beside a biker you don't know in the same lane was rude. Whether it be at a stop-light or while in motion, it's kind of impinging on someone else's personal space. Since learning this, I've applied it, but I find that there are many other bikers that don't. Is this a common courtesy or is this some sort of courtesy only a few know of or practice?
