In my first safety riding class I was told:
To ride like half of the people can't see you!
And the half that can are trying to run you over!

Good Evening Spec,

I appreciate your posting of this video. As riders we can never be aware enough that drivers just don't see us MC riders. I like the advice that its our responsibility.

Affixing a pair of 50"s on the wind shield could also help.

Good video. Thanks for posting it.

I always liked this quote by Cpt. "Sully" Sullenberger, who safely landed the passenger jet in the Hudson River a few years ago after a bird strike.

I think in a way it also applies to motorcycling:


"One way of looking at this might be that for 42 years, I've been making small, regular deposits in this bank of experience: education and training. And on January 15 the balance was sufficient so that I could make a very large withdrawal."[35]
