Bikes: The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996, although I modify it throughout the year for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

Very well-put. I could never understand why people come to these forums to post recaps of interactions with drivers in which they (the cyclist) so obviously come off looking like the aggressor. I think, many times, the writers of these posts are still so charged up that even they do not realize that they were in the wrong, or that they exacerbated the situation they were in. I often wonder if they feel the same way after they calm down.

Anyway, your thought was a great component to add to the informal bike "training" I do with newbies around my neighborhood. Thank you.
