Was doing 90mph on a forest road with no shoulders when some idiot in the opposing lane decided to pass up a blind hill. I had to ride my CBR500R into the dirt at about 60 mph in the dark. Luckily I narrowly got around him and never lost control of my bike. NJ has many roads improperly labeled as passing zones particularly up blind hills so be careful out their guys. ALSO don't be an idiot yourself and pass in these zones endangering yourself. Always make sure you can see opposing traffic.

I've had a cage come at me when passing wrongly, too. I was able to swerve to the paved strip of shoulder and no harm done. Fortunately I'm in the habit of always being in the right hand track as I crest any hill that is blind beyond and be especially alert near the crest. I think, good habit.

Hold your horses. At 90mph on a forest road at night, wouldn't that be 2 idiots playing chicken? Just wondering.
