#5 Learn from your mistakes.
#6 Go the speed limit, but keep yourself free of traffic

Don't become a statistic!!!

Don't become a statistic!!!
The irony of your last statement is that you become a statistic no matter what. If you remain accident free then you're now on that side of the statistic.


Seriously though.

The rules seem straightforward enough, but riding Houston streets can be quite the opposite. Experience and sound judgement keep us alive and unscathed. Any such rider knows when the rules are to be applied and when they are to be broken for the best possible outcome. New riders get themselves in trouble when they exceed their own limitations or simply make the wrong choice in a tight spot.

The only rule I've ever seen worth following is:

Gather every oppurtunity you can to improve your skill set on the bike. Personal instruction, videos, books, track time, and on and on. I am not Rossi. You are not Rossi. Rossi didn't even start out being Rossi. The better riders we are the more likely we can turn the outcome to our favor. With that knowledge comes practicality. Gear choices, behavior, attitude, awareness all follow in step with the drive to be a better rider. We see it around us everyday on this forum.

The Rules of Riding

#1 - The first rule of riding is, you do not talk about riding.

#2 - The second rule of riding is, you DO NOT talk about riding.

Hopefully we can all have fun and return home safely. I know that riding in Houston we have to keep clear of all the people who don't signal while changing lanes, and that hot chick driving a surban while texting. Please just ride safe..... When you can.

Dude, seriously, #6???

You CANNOT ride like that ALL the time. Sometimes you gotta be the one doing the passing so you know whats ahead not being passed and worrying on whats coming up behind you all the time.
