Pretty much the same as the above. I don't say "may I", but I do say thank you when I pass. 

As do I. :thumbup: Politeness costs nothing.

First impression is huge.  If general public sees us on the EUC for the first time good first impression will go far.  I've been riding on public transit platform since January this year 2018 and no complaints so far.  If I make an eye contact with stranger I wave first. :cheers:

Jetsons car sound played on a loop.

 

Damn, I'd been meaning to try that one... (He beat me to it.) 👈

People will think: Does it really sound like that? Sounds familiar...

(BTW: I think euc's should look like briefcases to blend in.)

:lol:  Karma works in funny ways.  I got chased by two little dogs running straight towards me on my ride today.  I think they heard my music playing before their owners realized it, and the two canines went zooming right at me.  Little dogs are kamikaze pilots on four paws!  I had to veer just to avoid running one over. 

I just kept rolling and glancing at them around my back area.  After a short distance they disengaged their pursuit.  :efefc8626c:. I wish I had my selfie stick to film it.

Dogs have a tendency to repeat their actions so I suggest returning to scene tommorow and record episode 2. For an added effect maybe haveTesla pull some t-bones behind you.

That reminds me of an incident.  I was at the lake walking to the shoreline and a German Shephard came  running at me and  barking and growling.  I was at least 100 yards away from the owners.

I slowly started heading back up the hill to my car, after digging through the trash can for a protective weapon.

Didn't find anything heavy enough to protect me, when the dog got close, I would say loudly,  "Go home"  Three times this happened, every time the dog would pause and look towards it's owners.  (I think somebody sicced this dog on me, why, I don't know.  At the time, I thought , how nice, there is nobody there, I can walk to the shoreline and look at the lake.

Finally someone came and tried to control the dog.

I keep thinking about it when I wake up in the morning. 

The only good thing was that it was a young woman in a bikini.

I said to her, "that dog is big enough to kill me! 

I hate unleashed dogs that are big enough to kill me!

(——> ) Let’s circle back to the bikini clad dog owner. Just like @Hunka Hunka Burning Love NO selfie stick?  You need to return to the scene immediately! I’ll shell out the cash for the meat.

Thanjs. I purchased the remote bell/horn on Ebay. 

https://m.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Bicycle-Electric-Horn-Cevapro-Rechargeable-Waterproof-Bike-Bell-120db-Loud-/302684776118?txnId=1512588038020

Only a few mods.

1) Ground off the excess plastic and rubber fastener on the actual bell and added a piece of self stick velcro to both wrist guard and bell.

2)  Cut away the excess plastic and rubber loop on the button switch housing

3) Added a little rubber spacer that fit inside of the switch housing to hold my hook velcro.

4) Sewed a piece the pile velcro onto the outside thumb section of the Flexmeter.

5) Routed the wires appropriately to hide their view.

I assumed you bought the horn from Amazon. It's $14 Prime vs $18 EBay. Just letting others know in case they are interested in doing something like this.

No I didn’t. That is a much better price. Do they stock it or is it coming from China?

It's Prime, which means 2-day delivery.

Since your videos and photos are copyrighted I think it is only fair that you use a different color for your bell.:roflmao:
