According to law the bicycle is not allowed on the main roadway and should be using the shoulder so driving too close should not be an issue if the laws were being followed.

Mike, you must of been misinformed...see below

Operation on shoulder.-- A pedalcycle may be operated on the shoulder of a highway and shall be operated in the same direction as required of vehicles operated on the roadway.-
A bicycle may be operated on either a shoulder or on the roadway (the travel lanes). The locations will be based upon traffic volume, the physical condition of the travel lanes or the shoulder, traffic speed, the bicyclist's intended direction, and other safety factors.

The portion of the law you cite (3505b) says nothing about bicycles not being allowed on the main roadway. It says that a bicycle MAY be operated on a shoulder (i.e. you can bike on the shoulder, while cars can not use it), but it does not prohibit them from the roadway.

The law is very clear that bicycles are afforded the same rights and privileges on the road as motor vehicles. It is completely legal for a bicycle to operate on the main roadway.

Why are bicycles afforded all rights to our roadways without all having proper liability insurance to cover any damage they may cause to motor vehicles ?

Virtually all cyclists are covered under their homeowners and/or auto insurance policies' personal liability clauses.
