Here's something interesting to think about. There apparently is some public opinion going around in Malaysia that there are too many motorcyclists riding in convoys, or groups I presume, and that this poses a danger to other road users.

Thus far, the government has no plans to do anything about it. According to Malaysia's Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy:
"There are no provisions in our laws relating to road safety that limits the number of motorcycles in a particular convoy but moving in a convoy is generally not encouraged. We hope those going back for this holidays in a convoy will not be a nuisance and cause danger to other road users," he said.
The minister went on to say that he hopes motorcyclists would discipline themselves, and be considerate to other road users.

This seems kinda reverse from what I typically see here in Southern California. It's often the cagers who are not considerate to bikers. Since I haven't done any riding in Malaysia, it's hard to understand what's going on there. But the notion that motorcyclists riding in groups poses a threat to other drivers is a new twist.
