Yes, it is only common courtesy to use pull-offs when someone is behind you running faster than you, regardless of what speed you're going.

I think we're just gonna have to agree that you're wrong and move on.

Besides we haven't had our pic made on the Dragon riding the Harley yet. In fact she missed the last photo op on the Tiger as well...



You aren't missing anything. The Hub was a shithole when I stayed there two years ago. Find a decent place in Eureka Springs or camp at one of the state/national parks instead if you find yourself in that part of the world.

And the Arkansas and Missouri Ozarks???......but you didn't hear it from me. I'm headed over in a week or two for a bit of camping and riding myself. Of course, I've got great riding 1/2 an hour from my door on any day.

Speaking for myself...if I'm speeding on a road and I catch up with someone who's not, then I don't have any expectations that they'd alter their driving for me. That'd be, IMO, fucking selfish of me. If they pull in, excellent. If they don't, well, that's my issue, not theirs.
Another person who doesn't understand the word courtesy. Here you go:

cour·te·sy
ˈkərtəsē/
noun
noun: courtesy
the showing of politeness in one's attitude and behavior toward others.

Again, you are commenting on something you know nothing about. We have some really ridiculous speed limits on some roads. If I am exceeding the speed limit and someone catches me I will let them by. I don't expect others to do this for me because many riders are . However, many are courteous and do let me by, even those dreaded Harley riders.

As for it being a busy day and someone looking to pass me every other minute.....I wouldn't know about that. I may be slowing down in my old age, but I ain't that slow.

And you're still in another country, far away from our fun roads, thankfully.

You never did answer the question about how many times you've actually been on "the Dragon"

Cat, it's simple.... Let the faster riders pass when you have some control on when or continue to be a douche and get passed after you have pissed them off. Your choice.

I think there is a cultural clash here.

And two parties agreeing that one of them is wrong is pretty immature for an old fart like you.

It's official, I don't like you and your tunnel vision. Tell ya what, I will meet you at the gap and let you follow me at 20mph and let you see how it feels for all 9.5 miles.

You're just like tons of old goldwingers who put others down for their riding simply because it differs from your own.

As a younger generation would say...You ain't all that.

Oh and Cat... If I were riding so slowly that people were trying to pass me every minute I would either speed up or get the hell off the road.

When you are visiting, you are a guest. You do not live here so don't think for one second that you have any right to bitch about how locals or others ride. If you don't Luke it, stay away. There are plenty of other road for you to putt down. I think I speak for most of the locals when I tell you... " You got your T-shirt, now go away."

WHOA.... You haven't even ridden the road? WTF are you doing here? You dare talk to us as though you've been there, done that?


Wow.

Wild Hog alert. Douchebag poser you are.
