Now I ask ya …  what is 30 feet wide and highly contageous? The answer is simple enough … IT HAS TO BE MY TRIKE. If you don’t believe me just ride nearby me and watch cars and trucks. There is enough room for two A1 Abrams tanks side by side with room to spare for my trike to pass thru yet motorists coming toward me will stop and wait for me to get thru all by myself before they proceed. When I am sitting at a red light or stop sign they will stop 3 or 4 car lengths behind me as if they are afraid to get any closer. In both scenarios I don’t get it. The only thing that comes to my mind is that they lack confidence in their driving skill level. Of course, I readily admit I prefer this over the opposite that some trike riders report. I don’t ever remember a driver getting close to me other than a city bus driver that just had to pass me and then immediately pull over to the curb at a bus stop . In doing so she cut me off and forced me to brake hard so I didn’t get squashed. I pulled up alongside of the door of the bus yelling at her. She just looked at me. She would not open the door. I reported her to the bus company but it didn’t do any good.

Anybody else get the impression their trike must be super wide and something to avoid getting close to?
