He definately loves a good whistle.

Have you ever been to a third world country and noticed how the cab drivers use the horn as much as say the gas or the brake? I found that hilarious. One hand on the wheel, one foot on the gas, one on the brake, and always one on the horn.

Ive only been to three countries like that but every one, man that horn was a necessity.

Being on a bike, and being on a bike as much as he has, I dont blame him. Probably saved his ass once or twice.

He roams around Midtown (Cass Corridor) as well.

Ah, gotta love that big city experience. :-)

I passed by him, or his associate, while riding my bike along Outer Drive near Mound a few years back. He was riding opposite traffic flow and used his whistle at each crossing.
