Be respectful of other riders
For the “big twin” guy on Old Nvl Hwy, in Murfreesboro this afternoon at about 1735 hrs. If you are on this forum, I’d appreciate your being more courteous, you scared the crap out of me, and could have caused us to collide!
When I turn right at 20mph, from the right side of the lane, I first swing left, then swing right (for the turn.) Just as I was swinging left, you blew past me, in my lane. Luckily, I caught you in my peripheral vision, and made the turn wide to avoid swinging left into you. I would have had another problem if a car had been exiting the subdivision.
You had lots of lights on the bike and a reflective vest, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to respect others on the road. There is no lane splitting in TN.
If it happens again, I’m going to turn around and come after you.
For other riders on the forum, don’t follow too close. Give other riders the same respect that you would want.
