  • Mike, It is never recommended by any motorcycle training school/course that 2 motorcycles ride side by side. However, it is recommend to ride in a staggered formation with one motorcycle close to the yellow line with the trailing motorcycle 1 second behind and to the left towards the white line. Then the next following motorcycle 2 behind the motorcycle in front of him towards the yellow line and so on and so fourth. I can not speak for all motorcycle riders but remember that because of the size of a motorcycle it is harder to judge our speed the further away we are. Stopping at an angle is a defensive driving technique taught so a motorcycle can leave its self an out to avoid getting hit from behind. This is the same concept of leaving at least one car length from the car in front of you when you are sitting at a traffic light. Always remember the idiot you are yelling at on a motorcycle is the same idiot you yelled at yesterday in the car. A bad driver is a bad driver whether it is on 2 wheels or 4 wheels. The biggest difference is a fender bender between cars usually just causes a scratch on a bumper. Hit a motorcycle with the same force will total the motorcycle and seriously injure the rider if not kill them.

  • Mike, Please to not put MOST of us in that category. 99% of us follow the rules, but you must remember ( or not) we have to ride defensively do to we only have two wheels and no metal around us, to protect us, so we ride with the frame of mind of an avenue of escape ( like close to the center line) and stop at an angle, its not that we are reckless but protecting ourselves. Maybe you should ride someday and you will know what its like to have a 3000lb vehicle against a 700lb motorcycle, the motorcyclist most of the time doesn’t win. But there are idiots out there on bikes for sure. but MOST OF US are not

  • Motorcyclist tend to not follow the laws or think they are above the law. They always ride side by side with one motorcycle riding very close to or over the center line and that is not allowed. They also tend to take more risks and drive fast. I agree people in vehicles drive recklessly too but I think most motorcycle accidents are due to the fault of the operator of the motorcycle.

  • Look twice,three times,motorcycles are everywhere.( weaving in and out of traffic) hope all is well.

    • Eyesondard, That is a poor comment suggesting motorcycles are always weaving in and out of traffic. I agree, that there are some who do not drive appropriately, or always safely, but there are plenty of car and truck drivers out there who do the same thing with much larger vehicles. I cant even remember how many times I was cut off by a car or truck while riding my motorcycle. Typically it’s drivers pulling out in front of a bike, or cutting you off while changing lanes.

  • Hernando County is a very dangerous place to drive in, You are lucky to get from point A to point B without someone crashing into you,
