"I'm not sure how riding further to the left is going to make a difference.  The driver was either intentionally trying to drive close to Steve or drunk out of his mind.  In the first case, the driver would have shifted over a little…"

"Sorry to hear about your experience Steve.  Sheridan Road in Kenilworth at 7:30am Sunday has more bikes than cars.  It is THE "Biker's Highway" on the North Shore at that hour.  And there are a lot of Kenilworth…"

"Hey, if you feel you're ok without one, fine.  You seem to have thought about it and who am I to say?  Maybe different people have better peripheral vision than others.  It works for me (especially in places like the loop) and it…"

"Rich I think there are other ways besides a mirror to avoid these kinds of drivers: 1.  Develop your peripheral vision, particularly on your left side.  It takes training.  That way you can always monitor traffic behind every 5-10…"

I am not sure what I need specifically except for maybe bungee cords, but I am sure if we meet up we can exchange. I live in Wicker Park.
