I do most of my traveling by bicycle--my '06 Dakota only has 17,000 on it. I have 3 bikes and use the safest one for any given ride. Skinny tire road bike for best road conditions, fat tires if I'm likely to have to be off road onto the gravel shoulder, heavy steel bike with racks if I have a lot to carry.

In my years of cycling I have a horror story to match just about anyone's, except the silly string. There are a lot of morons out there. My latest retaliation is using a cell phone calling 911 reporting the vehicle as a suspected drunk driver--He's weaving all over the road and almost hit me. Its only been once that I have actually passed the driver pulled over, but it made my day.
