Riding across the country was interesting. Most drivers east of the Mississippi River were assholes or at the very least paid no attention on the road. However, once I got west and especially in rural areas, I was amazed at how traffic switched lanes or sped up when they saw me coming. It's like their whole mindset for driving was to not be an inconvience to anyone else on the road.
Rural Texas has the nicest drivers. Everyone waves to each other. Ocassionally I'd pull over to take pictures or check my phone and someone would always pull over to check on me. Kind of reassuring knowing if I went down or something bad did happen 99% chance someone would have stopped to help.
California sucked....those cagers are assholes.
