Just recently I had an experience riding with a friend on a 4 lane freeway, in which he elected to travel for a rather long distance in the left hand lane. I am going to make my view on this subject absolutely plain. On a freeway with more than two lanes, If you have not just gotten on the freeway, or are not about to get off the freeway. You have Absolutely No Business being in the far left lane. Look if you are tired of living, then go for it. But if you want to have a fun healthy life on a bike, get the F#$k out of the left lane. You are forced to endlessly manage people merging in and out of the lane getting on and off the freeway. It is seriously the most dangerous place to be. Obviously for you poor L and P platers in NSW with your completely #$#ked 80kph limit, you may have to stay left but for every one else. Get out of there!
