Never ride while asleep.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

The most important thing is to PLAN AHEAD. Keep your mind several seconds ahead of your ass. Never ride in a box. Ride for where you are going to be, not where you are.

Never insist that you have the right of way... you will lose every time.

Never have sex riding 2-up at high speeds, the outcome can be messy (pun intended)

Make sure cars around you see you. Watch for head movements and glances in mirrors because both are indications that the driver is getting ready to change lanes. This has saved me more times than I want to try to count.

Watch out in parking lots. There is a huge percentage of people that think just using the rear view mirror is sufficient while backing out of a parking spot. These DA's don't really have any idea what is behind them because they can't see anything on either side of them. Thankfully these people have only got me while I was walking and smacking their windows and yelling got them to stop. I got backed into 2 times on Black Friday...
