TIPS FOR ALL RIDERS read it know it be it :::::::
trust no one on the road but your self
use your blinkers in town they will help let people know where u are going.
dont lane cut
ride in town with your brights on
Always ride in the left or middle lane -cars pull out on the right the most .
when comming to a stop flash your brakes then slow down
If a car is pulling out of somewhere and your not sure they see u slow down flash your brights and tap your horn till you know they do.
never asume a driver see"s u or has seen you.
tailgaters- roll your bike back and forth a bit when u stop so they know
Use your horn let people know your there, bikers have more reson to use them then any other driver on the road
do peek at car side view mirrors most people will check it when they change lanes
dont ride in blind spots
dont ride fast in populated areas chances are a car will pull out from some where
always scan the side of the raod both sides- for deers and cars etc.
IF YOU GO DOWN IN ANY CASE FAST OR SLOW DO NOT PANIC DO NOT JUMP RIGHT UP!!take some breths see if u feel pains or anything , make sure u are ok and feel ok ,before jumping up to save your bike ..the bike is coverd and can be fixed ((friend went down once thought he was fine till he got up and his rib snaped puncherd his lung, If you do feel pains anywhere and dont feel right about it DONT move sit right where u are dont move or remove helmet main thing is to relax take a self test what hurts etc etc then u will have the info ready for the medics also helps to keep from going into shock if hurt kinda bad.
always carry ID or medical info" blood type vary important" under the seat of your bike.make a copy put one on your self to.the more info the ER has the better they will be able to treat you .you can avoid alot of probes and cutting needles with just a little info on yourself.
in the summer always carry a bottle of water,it will fit under seat
or rear seat.its hot and in jackets /leathers u swet alot avoid heat stroke drink water.
Dont ride faster then u think u can handle
wear the right gear so what if your hot heat is nothing like getten operations head wounds cuts road rash or front end of a car etc.
drink more water !
if you wear a t shirt u may as well not wear your helmet save your self from the pain you will have when u go down cause you will wish you where dead.

few jumping jacks will help.
