Are you sure you aren't in Utah? I can count the number of days that I haven't almost been hit while riding my XR on 1 hand. I give my horn and/or my throttle a workout on a way too regular basis. Between people coming into my lane or slamming on their brakes without a signal to make a turn I have to avoid a lot of impacts.
Around here speed limits are suggestions and stop lights are optional. It's not unusual at all to sit through a green light while waiting for a line of morons to finish running their red light. If you are coming up on a yellow light don't even think about touching your brakes (on a bike or in a cage) until you look behind you. There's a 90% chance that the @$$clown behind you doesn't know you are in front of them because they are so focused on seeing if they can make the light that they look right over you.
Be careful out there; the other drivers aren't so somebody has to!
