Guess I would be considered the psychopath with the addition of just running the red light if I have to sit too long and there's no other traffic.
Been THERE, done THAT...!

Psychopath I guess but I sure as hell don't pop into neutral at a light, you'll be glad you were in 1st when you hear the sound of tires squealing behind you.
Yep. I woulda picked you as a psychopath. Regardless of that video. 馃槤馃槆

Legal in Kentucky! If you sit for 2 minutes or at least one full cycle that skipped you, you can legally "run" the red light, after yielding to all other traffic.

I am the cool guy most days. Occasionally I've been the singer. Especially when I took my music theory class, and I practiced my scales (singing) while riding.

Everything is legal when nobody is looking. Just be careful around Louisville or you'll be pulled over by a Honda Odyssey or Jeep Renegade or any number of secret police cars they somehow operate there with impunity.

I live in Louisville, and my bike is my transportation, so I ride a lot. I never got pulled over. I only see people getting pulled over, who are doing 80 at a 55 speed limit, or doing crazy stuff. To be honest, drivers are still terrible here, so they should probably pull over more people.

Absolutely, 80 in a 55 and other crazy stuff should be discouraged by law enforcement. My experience only as an outsider/visiter to Louisville on many occasions is that everyone drives 10mph below the limit everywhere, presumably because the cops are all driving unmarked civilian vehicles.

I've tried "picking my nose", but that clear plastic thing on my helmet keeps STOPPING my finger (as do the gloves I'm wearing...!).;)
