Officer approaches me on his motorcycle and tells me I'm impeding traffic, while riding along sharrows. Then tells me sharrows are not used for lane position but to signify which streets I should ride on. However...

According to the 2012 California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices:
Section 9C.07 describes a Shared Lane Marking that may be used in addition to or instead of the Bicycles
May Use Full Lane sign to inform road users that bicyclists might occupy the travel lane.
Support:
04 The Uniform Vehicle Code (UVC) (Also refer to CVC 21202(a)(3)) defines a "substandard width lane" as a
"lane that is too narrow for a bicycle and a vehicle to travel safely side by side within the same lane."

Quotes from the officer:
Right hand edge of the raod way..(can't make out rest)
You need to ride to the right hand edge, okay. Thats not your lane.
Let me put it to you this way. You cannot hold up traffric in the traffic lane.
(Officers names himself)
if you hold up traffic I will cite you.
your holding up traffic though
You need to ride on the right hand most edge.
Its not a lane.
The marking that where bicyclist are supposed to ride and that means on the right hand edge
