Yeah, biggest take away for me is to be more patient than the irrational impatience that seems to take hold of a a lot of drivers and riders. I can wait the 10 seconds for some a hole to swerve around me to get to the red light or stopped traffic, and THEN cruise on by. I get to the same place in the same amount if time. Thanks fellow 2 wheeled brothers and sisters.

Helmet cam cant hurt.
Giving teh barf salute might hurt you if the cager is a total ass hat.
IE they might give chase and run you down.
Best case is to know straight up and know cagers dont see you 9/10 times or they dont care.
You look out for yourself cowboy. when they do wrong chalk it up to them just being stupid.
Count to 10 and ride your ride.
Get away from the monkeys.

Give yourself an out when ever possible.
For those who are jamming on your brakes... back off lest ye become a trunk oranment.

I've been too slow to save up for Asheville, and that's run away with its home cost:value ratio, when considering that there's almost no dirt roads and their many rural mountain roads are filled with drunk redneck tourists.
