Music wasn't that bad, who was?
Now. IIRC, you said at one stage you didn't mind your riding being critiqued...
Sit waaaaaaaaaaaaaay over to the left like that and you give the clowns room to treat you with disdain. Seeing as we are not fitted with indicators, it has worked well for me to use my position to give the sentient smokeboxers an idea of my intention. The rest of them have to be allowed for of course but by taking an assertive position on entry, you prevent them acting on their ignorance.
It’s “I was born to Cry” by Johnny Thunders. It’s on a compilation CD I’ve had for donkeys ages. The Video was from early January this year and thanks to the advice I received on BNA I have since improved my roadcraft at this RAB which I ride through every day on my commute. I now “take the lane” before coming up to it.
The video was taken using a pinhole camera in my glasses which are good but with limitations. The camera is in the middle of the frames (just above your nose) but the angle isn’t quite what you see with your eyes. Unfortunately the glasses died and at roughly $150 I’m not sure if I’ll replace them.
