Yes, actually. All the drivers I encountered on my ride were pretty cool about it. Most of the trip has big bike lanes, and wide streets, but there are a few spots where I had to take the whole lane, and one hill that merges two lanes into one, with a narrow bridge over the freeway.
There was a guy in a mustang weaving in and out and passing traffic, and when he saw me, slowed down, and waited till I could get back over to pass.
And almost every driver was checking it out. Got a few thumbs up, and some polite honks.
When I'm riding slow, I'm using hand signals, obvious head turning eye contact, and giving up my right of way for my safety.
When I'm on my Cimatti doing 50+, I'm more of an asshole.
