almost all of this is great advice.

i gotta agree with the people preaching maintenance.. i also preach a good knowledge of your suspension. if youre gonna push it, learn it... and tire pressure, tire pressure, tire pressure. 5lbs could mean the difference in traction and no traction... especailly for some of you folks who are heavy handed.

having the nickname crash, its pretty obvious how i earned it. and not just doing dumb shit. sometimes, no matter how safe you play it... shit just happens. when the shit does happen... its always good to have your safety net in place. emergency braking techniques, gear, and keeping your wits about you will all save your life or skin at one point or another.

and for chrissakes, if youve never ridden the road before, slow the hell down.

Thanks for this AWESOME thread to all. I ride the streets 359 days a year and I can tell you that you have to ride 200% more cauious than you already are. regardless of what you already think, think again and treat it as your first ride ever and be super careful, relax your mind but don't get comfty on the road.

I love reading this thread. Every day, I come home from work and see at least 10 of these things happen within traffic whether its me or another rider.

Excellent write up. I have been riding for 12 years and feel the same way. Everyone needs a set of rules like this when on the road to stay safe.

Best point made is that other people don't care about you on the road.

I hear if you drive fast enough, you just cut right through them!
