This is great advice..... hwve had this happen to me and had it almost happen several times because like you said people see a bike and think of a bicycle just toodling along towards them instead of it moving about 3-4 times that speed, people on their phone are bad about not paying attention when a car or tduck is coming and this lack of att ntion seems to multiply when Im on a motorcycle or a motorized bike, super defensive riding is a must inorder to stay safe......
