Yes, but then you have to decide, do you aim to slap the distraction device out of their hand, snatch the buds out of their ears, or just give 'em a nice wide smack upside the head?

We were rear ended twice in one month, both times distracted drivers. Even on the trail when I pass through the urban section I have to be on high alert for the ear pod people (likely even this air raid siren couldn't be heard as when I pass I can hear the music), zombie cell phone walkers and others that seem to think there is no right of way on a trail, just "Their" way. Sigh, but at least they won't drive over me.

Oh and enjoy your 88 Centurion Ironman Expert, I just got my 87 Centurion Ironman Expert they are beautiful bikes, will post my ride impression when the weather allows.

Yeah pricey, but as the Life Insurance Sales Person would say "What price, peace of mind?" Lol
Around here, it's a lesser offense to be assaulted than to be insulted. Took some time getting used to. And I do live a charmed cycling existence, when I'm outside of the villages. Inside, People do things that one would never expect, and with no warning. Countless times I've made a turn off one street onto another, and found someone in my lane coming the wrong way. Folks pull out without looking. They come to a cross street and look hard in one direction and not at all in the other. It's a tiptoe dance getting to the outskirts and then the open road. And then there is practically no traffic, and top speeds around 50 mph.

I just love riding a vintage road bike. The smooth speed and quick response of the steel has to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I know.

My bikes: 58cm '72 Schwinn World Voyageur, 24" '79 Trek 930, 58cm '84 Schwinn Letour Luxe, with couplers, 61cm '92 Schwinn Paramount (Panasonic) [Incoming: 60cm '88 Centurion Ironman Expert, 24" '80 Trek 414]
I will buy no more bikes forever.
