You can pull my driving record to see at any given time my speed will fluctuate 20+mph. My theory on predictions of other people is assume they will never notice me and are liable to drive into me at any point. Sadly I follow that same belief in my lifted Jeep Wrangler, and even more depressing, I get hit MORE in the jeep than I do on the bike. :( Amazing how a giant black jeep is invisible when it's in a parking lot or at a red light. (been hit at least 10-15 times in parking lots)
