I hear you all talk about the drivers that hassle you for riding in the street. Living in Long Beach, Ca I had not experienced that side of commuting. Long Beach seems to be a great place to ride. However I, finally, got a honk out of someone when I was taking the lane by my house. I am not particularly pleased that I got honked at nor was I too stoked that one more driver does not know the law regarding bike riders. I was proud though that I have logged enough miles to finally experience what a bunch of you guys talk about. I could have sat on my butt at home and watched TV on a Sunday afternoon but I wanted to go for a ride and got honked at. I was pretty pleased. lol I just waved him around pointing to the next lane over. He followed for a bit then shipped around and sped off. I am now at about 600 miles since I got the bike in mid-March. Pretty stoked!
