    No, though a couple of weeks back I was passed by the Google Streetview car. I know Bing is doing it as well.

    Typical Honda-twin (or V4). Radiators on the sides, under the fairings. RC51, Superchicken, and I think the Viffer have their rads there.

    I think leery is smart; it's not like Abq drivers are brilliant, after all. I just watch out for anyone with the 'bad driving' yellow or turquoise plates.

    However, there's a decent amount of roads...

    Welcome to the forums. Don't be too scared out here; we have some nice wide shoulders to ride on where there aren't bike lanes.

    See you out there, somewhere.
