    Draw an invisible circle around you at least 25 ft in diameter, "call it the invisible circle" and don't let anyone within that circle without your knowledge or total attention. Watch the eyes and front wheels of other drivers and anticipate anticipate anticipate what you will do and where you will go if someone invades your space or does something unexpected. In other words always be looking for an out. Don't let yourself be distracted.

    Ride with out additional distractions like MP3 players and the like. You need to be focused on the task at hand.

    During a wheelie, when changing gears.......

    Ooops.
    I mean:
    Don't do stupid things in places not suited to doing stupid things.
    Race on a race track, pop wheelies in closed off areas.

    Racing cars from light to light is like a bicycle racing a wheel chair.
    No matter how much he revs or chirps...
    It's done,
    You won,
    Move on.

    always leave your bike in gear when the side stand is down, it will keep it from rolling offf or having the sidestand fold up on you

    Always lift your sidestand before putting your bike in gear and riding off.

    When parking next to high curbs or sidewalks, lift your toes and feet when pulling up beside the curb.

    High curb + 500plus lbs. of rolling mass + toes or foot caught in between = Mucho Pain!!!!

    Trust me on this one
