    A motor cycle is not a circus act.

    I decided to ride my bike to day just to see how much trouble I could get out of.

    I found, that, it did not take that much,I also found that I need to pay greater atention, I don’t own the road, I share it with others, people appreciate it when I give them the right of way.

    The first trick I tried ,was to turn my head away from the road ahead , that was dumb, I found that in less that half a second I became disoriented , that got me thinking what is the secret here , I discivered that it was better to keep my head facing forward and flick my eyes around like a human radar mahine, I also use my mirrors alot. I guess you all know that the front brake can put you on the ground if you don’t use it unwisely.

    I tried the tail gate trick, that backfired ,because I found that I did not alow my self sufficient stopping distance .

    The tour bus infront of me gve me a blast of black smoke going up Croral Beach hill, I could not see aroung the thing much less under it, like i usualy do with cars, I tried the two second rule like when driving a car ,that did not give me much room to stop if need be, so I ncreased the following distance to 3 + seconds as bikes need more time.

    I am usualy good a doing corners but some of them did not work out as I had planned , the problem there was going just a little too fast for that corner .

    The same corner is not always the same.

    ” Right of way” we all know what that is , the down side is you could be “dead right” better to drive defensively you never know if you were seen or that person just passes the test or has some other issue.

    While riding I talk to my self as i see things, the reason is so i don’t forget there is a person on the side walk thinking of crossing.

    Girl watching can get you into a pile of trouble,as i am the one who wants to be noticed , so i use my flasher signals more than alot , i am a regular light show going down the road.

    I control trafic with my hand signals try it , it works !

    Did you know that vehicles can talk to one another, it’s called comunications, make eye contact.

    Talking about lights and horns, horns are for day use, flashing the head light works best at night ,do reserve the high beam for that, because, at night no body knows where the horn sound is coming from.

    I am no different that the average driver/rider , I noticed one thing if i use my brakes alot i must be going too fast .

    I don’t like being overtaken by people taking chances i am not alone here, I console my self with the thouhght that it is better to have that person in front of me than behind me.

    I saved a life today, it was my own.
