Years ago I had one woman cross four lanes and try to hit me. I quit riding on the road after that.

Big Tee, riding a motorcycle in the tire tracks of the left wheel is a good idea. Riding a bicycle in the left wheel tire tracks is a bad idea. A motorcycle can and will travel at the speed of traffic. A bicyclist has a hard time keeping up that kind of speed. Also, many bicycles are very narrow and lack the proper headlights, taillights, and turn signals. They might get run over more often in the left hand tire track.

Recently a friend of mine finally sold his bicycle and got a mountain bike. Too many people fail to yield to bicycles, crowd them, force them off the road, or failing all that simply run over them.

I hate to say it, but its not any better in SC vinman. Be careful and stay alert. They are trying to kill you out there.
