Not really. People are bothered by it but a lot of the bother is in people's imagination - a lot of the people who complain about RLJers have probably never seen one and are just jumping on the bandwagon. It's best off not mentioning it really.dondare said:Haven't you noticed how bothered both non-cyclists and Law-abiding cyclists are by it?
