When I'm on my liter bike overtaking cruiser types I like the old point-n-shoot technique...



get inside entering a corner, brake late and park it at the apex forcing 'em to go wide, then use my bikes superior acceleration to rocket ahead.



total ownage! LOL

Hook a big wheelie while thumbing your nose. Works best if you're on an old Enduro or XL350.

A warning shot from the 1911 works just fine.

If you are on a sportbike this should be no problem. kpaul beeps waves and blasts by the entire lot.. When kpaul gets his bolt he won't wave or beep cause they'll understand that its kbuell on black thunder..

I have always followed these rules for "passing"......



1. Try to keep it quiet in polite company. (it's O.K. to let er rip in front of your buddies....)



2. Always try to go outside or out into the hall, and walk a little ways to keep it from following you back in....



3. If it is at all possible, make arrangements to have a dog (or other domestic animal) around on which to place the blame......



Follow these guidelines, and you can be sure to be socially acceptable.

I usually try my best to be polite, ride along for a few miles, pass two or three at a time without getting crazy, waving to acknowledge fellow riders, etc., but ultimately you will have to blow past these slugs if you are going to enjoy your ride.



In researching passing etiquette on several group riding forums, it seems that many of these guys are offended when you don't follow thier group rules. While I avoid having too great a speed differential when passing, the size and slowness of these groups often requires going 130+ to safely get past them.



Respect, but get the f**k out of my way!
