Power usage has been fairly steady at around 45-48wh/mile according to the CAv3.1. I still don't know if it's reading low vs the CAv2.x, using the same shunt and setting, or if the the 2.x was reading high, but was more like almost 60wh/mile. I still need to do the experiment of hooking them both up to the same shunt at the same time to monitor usage, and see what the difference between them is, and figure out why.
Earlier this week, on my way to work, passing thru the parking lot for what used to be Tim Finnegan's (has been shuttered for a couple years, so that part of the parking lot is always empty, pretty much just like the satellite image linked below),

a gold pickup truck going the opposite direction from me suddenly swerved directly towards me as it was passing me, like he was trying to hit me. I just gunned it a little bit to scoot past his front end, and the guy just finished pulling into the parking space I'd been passing at that moment, and sat there, engine running.
Dunno why he did that, or what he was thinking, but he had to have tried to hit me on purpose.
There's no chance he couldn't see me--he was looking directly at me; our eyes met just before he did that.
There's also zero reason for him to just randomly happen to be pulling into that space; there's no businesses there anymore, havent' been for ages now. (there are some several store fronts further down, but the entire parking lot was empty except for a handful of cars near the Subway at the very far end of the complex).
Just glad he didn't chase me to keep trying to hit me; there are a couple places I could've gone he couldn't have got the truck thru, but rather not have to do that.
I've never had anyone do anything like that before, in a parking lot.
I *have* had a few of instances on the road, one not all that long ago, maybe last year, where he ended up driving into construction signs and stuff because he was too busy trying to cross lanes to get to me to run me off or over, and one around a decade ago on DayGlo Avenger where some guy swerved across lanes to try to run me down but instead got chased by the police for it. Other similar stuff over the decades before that, where they often got themselves in trouble or actually crashed into things because they were concentrating on trying to run me over/off the road (or sidewalk or separated bike path) instead of watching where they were going.
