    It doesn't bother me in the slightest (especially when I can justify being left in the dirt by saying "oh, s/he's on an e-bike" :cool: ). Heck, I figure I might need one for my own commute someday,...

    We're all trying
    to get to work
    We'll all get there
    if we're not jerks

    but what's your hurry?

    No there isn't. If you're passing, you call it. Period. Any mishap that takes place that could have been avoided by calling your pass is on you. Double period.
