I'm also more vulnerable and thus more cautious. If you ride like a hot dog outlaw you will get pissed off drivers who'd like to run you into the ditch. Guys who are riding pedal bikes and act like rules of the road don't apply to them somehow piss me off and I love bikes.
Awesome lol and ain't it grand how reason and a bit of common sense circumvent many of life's little complexities.
