- motorbike Q
As a motorcyclist you couldn’t really ask for more than that, when anyone obviously moves over to give me room I always acknowledge and likewise when I’m in the car I move over and appreciate the motorcyclist’s acknowledgment.Posted 4 years ago
More noticeable on the continent where the majority of drivers appear to move over, where over here it appears to be the minority and then you get the cretins that try and block the route.simon_gSubscriber
It’s nice to do in slow traffic to keep things moving.
I get a little unnerved when people dive for the gutter on NSL roads despite a load of traffic coming the other way. Nice that you’ve seen me, but I’m not going to squeeze between you and oncoming traffic, and when it’s clear I can easily get past anyway.Posted 4 years agoslowoldgitMember
So driving my small boring family saloon and a motorbike catches up with me, I’ll ease over towards the left side. I assume this gives the rider a better view of the road and any bad patches, and the traffic ahead, and easier route to get by.
Often I get a wave.
Is there anything else I sould know?Posted 4 years agomark90Member
As a currently ex-biker, on NSL roads I’ll pull over a little bit but not right in to the gutter, not really expecting the bike to squeeze through with oncoming traffic unless a partucularly wide road, but mostly to show I’ve seen them. In slow traffic then pull over enough to allow filtering.Posted 4 years agofourbangerMember
I personally wouldn’t unless the traffic is crawling. When I overtake on my bike, it’s when I think it’s safe to overtake. A pavement that jutts out would see you sideswipe me to avoid it. I’m normally happiest if the driver makes eye contact in the mirror, so I know they know I’m there.Posted 4 years agoamplebrewMember
I’ll always wave to say thanks to a driver when I’m on my motorbike.
Similary I’ll always give a car driver a wave when I’m on my push bike if they’ve hung back to give me loads of space before overtaking.
It’s nice to show your appreciation and quite often the driver or passenger will wave back.Posted 4 years ago
