Default Re: ignorant drivers thread !!!!

You guys make me glad I live and ride in northeastern Minnesota. If I had to contend with your situations I probably wouldn't ride much. As it is I am aware of my situation, being exposed on a motored bicycle and am always cautious. The people I encounter generally wave, smile and sometimes will pass, pull ahead and then stop to take a picture as I ride by. It helps having a cool vintage bike and a dog wearing doggles in a sidecar made from a canoe. I also run an American flag on a makeshift fishing rod flagpole which gets attention and also suggests the old fellow riding the bike might be a civil war veteran. Ha!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
