And what if you are on the right as far as you can go and they still feel the need to pass you to close, because they can't wait for the traffic to clear enough to do it safely. Sorry but in mind bike powered or not are like pedestrians. No matter how stupid they act it is the Automobile driver's responsibility to pass them safely. I still drive a car now and then and I have never 'pressed' a bike rider even before I had a bike again. It's called defensive driving.
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
