This video reminded me why I hate biker vlogs, especially made by Americans.

Not where I'm from . As a rtule speed limits have gone up a lot here. Texas backroad are @ 70 , fleeways @ 80 and 85 mph. Even stogy old Ohio has its limits @ 70 mph and that includes the big rigs, which can be a bit when they run by you at 85. Except some of the companies speed limit them to 65 which can be a on a two laner

Tis true though US cagers are generally a very dozy lot, much like cagers anywhere and do take umbrage somewhat. 'Ive done a few fly byes on tractor groups , they always give me the your #1 signal.

What if.. you sit nicely on the line, indicate and wait for the 'tail gunner' to notice and signal the troops that he's going to move to the right, or whatever.
Then they all move right(ish). and you move out smoothly, pin it and say thanks rather than people thinking they had 9 'selected vehicle styles and 1 with an incling to use more of the road.
Do they allow that ? (i.e, 'can I go' vs 'I'm going and I'm giving a courtesy gesture' )
Or do you just pin it, get on with your day and leave the stupid camera for pussie. < lol can't even remember what I did write there

and pray to the baby jesus that you don't have to stop for 'gas' if the patches are a specific design
I think I got my terminology etiquatly correct

What I don't understand is why a 'gay pride' parade didn't have a police escort.

Well there was this one group who got a little irritated when myself and a couple of lads were down in North Carolina having a bit of fun. The road ( Richard Russell ) had just been repaved and there was a fair bit of gravel left over. They got peppered with stones as we went by. We stopped at the end of the road for a break and to wait for some slower brethren. The tractor convey went by muttering about inconsideration. Looked like a bunch of dentists out for a spin. TBH the vast majority of the cruising groups I have run across have been considerate and moved over/waved us on

Cages heading to Morocco thorough Spain use(d) to travel in convoys. If the leader switched lanes they all immediately did so, despite the circumstances, visibility, etc. Even the local cagers were scared of them.
