I was tired, it was England, and most of the people weren't really stupid, just scared or kind of mean. I've come to the conclusion that even at a whopping 130# soaking wet, I must look pretty intimidating fully geared up with a GoPro on my helmet. People in England seemed to get skittish even when I was carrying my helmet. In Germany, a fully geared rider is welcomed as a sign that cash is about to start flowing.
Ok, one gas station guy did ask me about the cam - I told him that he should smile for me so that pic turned out good.
