Reasonably aggressive though sometimes stupid aggressive I guess. I think bobdanger is right in saying that city riding almost calls for it. I don't like to stop much & my trackstands suck so knowing light timings, traffic patterns at certain intersections etc. is worth the effort, conscious or not. Sometimes the right lane is too tight, too filled with car doors, peds & people turning so I split the lanes. There's one particular street that I always go down the wrong way, mostly to avoid other crappier streets around there. Generally I try to make sure people know I'm there & try not to barge into lanes/intersections or cut people off w/o notice. Giving the courtesy wave makes me feel good too, even if people aren't looking.
