    SCR ruling -- Do I get points once or twice

    So I passed a guy on the way home, clearly worth points. Later, after I'd gotten off the highway for an errand, I got back on. He evidently had kept going and eventually I passed the same guy again. Thus my question.

    I don't think it counts twice.

    Unless he's a roadie.

    It could have been his twin brother, so thus a second person. Definitely twice.

    Was his bike red? You could qualify for bonus points.

    YOU GOT OFF THE BIKE! YOU GOT OFF THE BIKE!

    Judge rules: New errand, new ride, new (separate) points.

    We are adjourned (gavel bangs).

    I say twice, but the other guy also gets passing points even though you stopped. So single points.

    Hmmm. Getting off the bike does seem like a significant factor. Turning off the road for a quick errand seems significant also.

    All things considered, I'm inclined to take the points twice.

    Unfortunately, his bike was not red, so I don't get a bonus.

    Were they wearing a track cap?
