Up round Loch Earn today, great weather, but some very heavy trucks taking up more than their side of the road without any escort moving about, so take care.

Bikes
In completely wrong position, should be on opposite side of his lane i.e. Nearer
Kerb for better vision , once you know it's clear
Then shorten it , as for hgv's if you can
See the drivers face in his mirror he can see you , if you can't , he can't, simples
