I do stuff in Germany that would get me shot in the US - very tight passes, high speeds, filtering - and it is not only expected, it is often the law. And it is only moreso in countries where two-wheelers are the majority of transportation.
I find it funny that some riders will scream and yell about their rights, but when confronted with the reality of two-wheelers with full right-of-way, they panic.
You got it right there, they can sit back and pontifact about anything, it is worthless unless they have been there and experienced it first hand.
Nothing I say and do is correct in their minds, because they are right, and do I care, not a jot
and btw, the bike is fixed, heading to Malaysia tomorrow morning, another country they have not been to probably, so I will report on the riding style needed there as well
