Riding in Texas for over 35 years will teach you alot.

First time I witnessed this, it was a big rig rolling along at a pretty good clip. Once I figured out what he was doing, I had to wring out the SV650s to get around him. I acknowledged him with a wave and have thought Texans were some of the nicest people since. Not long after that, my sister in law and her husband moved to Texas so I get to experience the courtesy pull over at least once a year when I visit.
"...When your time comes to die, do not be like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
So that when their time comes, they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." - Tecumseh
