Ride like you are invisable and everyone is trying to kill you.

Everytime you stop use the same techniques you would use in an emergency. I start with light rear brake to scrub a little speed and then apply the front right afterwards, using BOTH brakes together. May not be the right way but it works for me.

Been on a motorcycle since '78 and haven't put it down (on asphalt) yet. Knock on wood!

Assume they are going to pull in front of you, they will change lanes without signaling, don't ride in their blind spot, flash your brakelight a few times when stopping, install an extra 'cyclops' brake light.

ATGATT. Helmet, boots, gloves, long sleeves/pants, padded jacket.

Learning in the dirt made me appreciate the subleties of turning and stopping.

The only decision you have to make is what to do with the time you have been given
