Riding Side-by-Side

"Are motorcycle riders allowed to ride side-by-side on the road? Isn't that dangerous?"

Georgia motorcycle law states that no more than two motorcycles are allowed to ride side by side in one lane. It is well within the law as long as the motorcycle riders remain in one, single lane. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation gives extra advice for car and truck drivers when driving on the road with motorcycles. They say that motorcyclists often adjust position within a lane to be seen more easily and to minimize the effects of road debris, passing vehicles and wind.

Understand that motorcyclists adjust lane position for a purpose, not to be reckless or show off or to allow you to share the lane with them. Please use caution around motorcycles on Georgia roads.
