That would be my point entirely... I only ride on the street now for commuting and the very very rare road trip. I never ride on public roads for recreation or sport. Back when I was an avid sport-rider the club I rode with had pretty strict rules about not crossing into the oncoming lanes. In fact you could pretty much do anything else without so much as a raised eyebrow wheelies for miles, piss off the people that lived on the twisty backroad at 8:30am with your rev-limiter, hit your buddies kill switch at 65mph whatever..., but crossing the yellow line would earn you some admonishment.

LDH California. I saw no less than 12 bikes this morning on my 17 mile commute to the shop and it was 38į when I left the house.

Funny enough it was almost 13, but I decided not to ride at the last minute so I could take some tools to the shop with the convenience of the truck.

Maybe we should lead by example in this case.
What state do you live in? I see it the other way, 10 cars to 1 bike . I never ride over the double yellow and unless I'm passing a slow ass car. Safely of course.

Like the man said in one of the previous posts. People care about themselves and care very little how their actions affects others. I always tell the car drivers " what if your son or daughter were to be killed by a driver because that driver was not in their own lane?" Most of the time it hits home. Many times I have to ignore the fact someone in a car just about killed me because of their poor driving.
Yes, maturity, solid sense and reasoning and accountability and maturity, maturity MATURITY!

Safety first as a huge range of driver abilities out there.

Porschenut I was having a good day until I read the first post and started remembering all the times I've seen careless and inconsiderate pieces of sh*t who cross into oncoming lanes. There's no excuse for this type of driving. That being said, I'm not sure what I would've done either. I suppose I would've avoided a potential violent confrontation at the restaurant and kept going as well.

NinjaLife I see this all the time where I'm at, this is one of the reasons I don't like riding the street anymore(Can't afford to hit the track so I barely ride at this point). It makes me really upset when it happens on a backroad, cause that's usually where we go to get away from traffic but every so often there's a car coming around the corner crossing the fucking double lines.
