Nice to keep our knowledge up to scratch on keeping visible and knowing where we are invisible.

When we go for motorcycle license training we get bombarded with LOOK left LOOK right and we think 'If I can just pass this shit' not realizing the the additional safety aspect.

I will always tell fellow riders to make a exaggerated effort to look before changing lanes etc etc.  Like the guy said, the car driver will see "This twit is gonna fall of his bike" and will be super aware of you.  I look them straight in the eyes if possible.

So glad I don't commute.

Very interesting thank you. One of the first things I was taught when I started motorcycling was to always ride as if I was invisible to everybody. It was difficult in the beginning, but today I am glad. I started driving my car like that too. Ride safe fellow dogs, especially during this festive season.
