Re: Wondering about how to cope w/ traffic?
The best advice, and if you're a motorcycle rider you know this, 'Ride as if you're invisible'.
That's how I think of myself whenever I'm on the street with my bikes. I ride under the assumption that drivers can't see me and its up to me to make the decisions. I never assume that they see or know I'm even there. Even when I make eye contact I always give the cars the right of way. After all they do outweigh me by a few pounds.
Good luck and ride safe.
