I know this comment will not be popular however it seemed a reasonable place to raise the question rather than in a seperate thread.
Yesterday evening, as it was getting dusk, returning from London up the A1 we were in two lanes of traffic travelling at a similar speed some 10-15 mph below the national speed limit due to the usual problem of a medium sized commercial vehicle attempting to pass an HGV. I became aware that, behind me, a motorcycle was travelling up between the two lanes of traffic. Having passed me and a couple of cars infront and reached the rolling block he pulled across into the outside lane and directly infront of the first car obviously to ensure that as soon as the LGV started to pull over he could shoot up the outside. This caused a chain reaction of brakes down the outside lane.
I fully appreciate that a motorbike enables the rider to make better progress through traffic than a car does but at what point does it become foolhardy to use city centre tactics on the open road?
