I was traveling the opposite direction on dead straight wide open slab and a small group of cruisers on the shoulder appeared puzzled and anxious. Then a couple miles later the rest of their group were stressed in the median's emergency lane, with ambulances and miles of backup. Unfortunately they were lightly geared... Then a couple days later in the same section a sport MC unsuccessfully split lanes and wasn't moving much afterwards...
Never be complacent and don't be in a hurry to dump it!
About 10 miles of my 21 mile commute is slab. The lane seams seem to get wider and more "height offset" every year. Even now they kinda make the bike dance when I go over them. It keeps me on my toes and alert. Death or serious injury seldom walks up and says "hey I'm here". It usually sneaks up on you and bitch slaps you before you can do anything about it.

1) On TV showed double rows of HDs were escorting a couple war heros home, next story showed several getting tossed on the freeway, probably from riding big iron with lousy brakes.
2) On the freeway I passed a cage who then immediately changed lanes... without checking for a car he off the road into head on traffic. If that crashed cage used a stebel horn they may have avoided the accident.
See that sort of stupidity all the time - just happened to catch this one on video and was working on editing the raw video as I saw this thread. Nothing unusual or special, just got a good view of this. No signal, no clue, no problem (for them).
