    I don't "jink" intentionally, but I get the same wobbly effect from my alternating fear of the traffic, that stupid senseless vertical curb, and all the cr...stuff that accumulates between the curb and the white line, up to and including hubcaps and scrap lumber.

    That's interesting! I've always intentionally ridden straight so the driver's are less nervous when passing me. But you're absolutely right, in doing so they do drive closer to me. I might just have to start weaving a little. Thanks!

    I ride to work most days on a motorcycle. The secret to staying alive is trying to anticipate what people are going to do. I've had to use the bike lane a few times to avoid some jackass in a car. Thank God there were no cyclists in it at the time.
    1988 Peugeot PY-10/P Frankenbike, 1994 Diamondback "Response Elite" MTB, 2002 Performance M201 MTB and a 1983 SR road bike that has become my favorite ride. At least for now.
