Rule 1- Car/Truck drivers often fail to see bikes.
Wear fluoro high-viz jacket. Ride with headlight on at all times.
Ensure rear lights, brakes and indicators are high visibility.
Rule 2. - Overtaking
DON'T do it where there is a RH turn ahead. Car/truck may make sudden turn; see Rule 1.
Do it quickly, on straight stretch- NO BENDS. Have patience. Don't try if bike is low powered.
Rule 3. Wet weather
Reduce speed severely. White lines, manhole covers, oil/grease, many hazards!
Visibility will be affected. Keep vizor fog-free. Stop if rain torrential, better wet than DEAD.
Rule 3. -The usual checks
Tyres- condition, pressures
Brakes- pad wear, fluid level, leaks.
Mechanical- loose nuts, visible damage, fuel lines, etc.
Rule 4. -Other hazards
Animals! Peripheral vision, keep alert in countryside.
Pedestrians! Heavy traffic, distracted, wander into road. Horn!
Potholes, broken surfaces.
Rule 5. -The road is NOT a racetrack
Geez, I would never have thought of any of that ?

How many times have you crashed your motorcycle in the last three years?
