i also prefer to find a car at my speed
then follow it, not too close, not center lane,
letting it cut thru air resistance somewhat
while using it as a partial shield..
i trail busses thru roundabouts etc, for same reasons,
drivers see/avoid driving into busses, while they seem
willing to take my roadspace and me..
they tend to be trained to be aware of
the roadside/end of road, so being closer to
roadsides helps enter their attention,
as road space they tend to avoid..
of course there are nutcases and others
in dreamland or even enjoying the power
of muscling in on bikes, scoots etc..
thus being relaxed but aware of approaching
/nearby cars is self evidently necessary..
