Riding through intersections

When I'm going to go through an intersection, I like to do so alongside a crate (obviously as long as there is more than 1 lane), people tend to more readily see crates than motorcycles.

Training, training and more training. You're never too old to learn and don't ever think you are better than you actually are.

take a MSF course! Weather your new to riding or been doing it for years. Great for brushing up on skills. I know it cost money in some states. But its free in PA =D
