An article by Brian Catterson in the November 1, 2011 edition of THE MOTORCYCLIST online magazine, discusses the issue of the riders responsibility while operating street bikes. Some examples in the article of risks sometimes taken by motorcycle riders include:
Using the gaps between the parked cars in the right-hand lane to scoot by stopped traffic.
Feeling in your "comfort zone" because you are close to home or on familiar territory. Statistically, most accidents occur close to home, because our days begin and end there.
Drinking alcohol. Statistically, nearly one-third of all fatal motorcycle accidents involve riders who were under the influence, so if you dont drink when you ride youve already improved your odds substantially.
Not anticipating actions of other drivers (vehicles making sudden u-turns, for example).
Speeding. Never go faster than you can stop.
A quote from the article - "In motorcycling, "The House of Bad Decisions" is the hospital. Dont go there."
