As I predicted Bek, you have started three separate threads dedicated to your incorrect view of the law. In Washington, the RCW's and SDOT, which has spoken specifically to this issue, clearly state the rules of the road apply to bicycles, including the SMV law about impeding 5 or more vehicles on a 2 lane highway, if and only if, there is a turnout that is safe to use.
You are exactly who Robert Hurst is talking about:
'On one side there is a group of earnest, innocent fledglings who honestly believe that any new semi-separated facility will be good for bicyclists and good for America. They hold a precious vision of Amsterdam-izing the country which is dangerous in its simplicity. On the other side is a cadre of pompous, personality-challenged streethogs who offer aggressively insecure and selfishly uncooperative riding ....'
The only difference is that you have managed to retain the worst qualities of both groups.
Bek: "I'm just not getting off the road out of some mistaken understanding of our statutory duties as bicyclists to following traffic- I may very well do it as courtesy but i cannot think of a time that i ever have actually pulled off the highway to favor following traffic.
i'm not marginalizing bicyclists rights to the road so as to be misinterpreted we have to get off the highway!
no state, no how."
This is the selfish, roadhogish behavior Hurst is talking about. And you consistently ignore the fact that the law only requires you to pull into a safe, turnout, not leave the highway or dismount or go into the brush.
