agreed
also IMO...
A good rider keeps his bike road worthy
A good rider knows that insurance has a purpose and complies with legalities such as inspection and plates
A good rider also knows the why of "gear" and wears it all the time..


A good rider DOES NOT...
Run out of gas... pops wheelie in the same lane as the next rider.. rides without gear... flicks people off when blocked by another vehicle.. passes on curves... roars engine by the church..
rides on a flat.. gets his shoe laces chewed off by the chain..
rides without insurance.. spits gum off while wearing a helmet.. etc..

A good street rider is someone who rides responsibly, makes wise decisions, rides defensively, and doesn't endanger others on the road.

A good rider is rarely, if ever, surprised on the road. They are "aware" of both their surroundings and what the bike is doing.

A good rider is comfortable on the bike, and not at all worried about whether others think they are "fast" or "good".
Amen

I think it is when you are rarely surprised or put into an oh situation then you know you are starting to get the hang of it.

There are good riders in the aspect of maturity and there are good riders in the aspect skill. You can have an expert racer ride like an assclown down the freeway every time he commutes and he'd be considered a bad rider. Or you can have a mature rider that is always aware and takes safety first and he would be a good rider regardless of skill (to a certain extent). To me an expert racer with regards to the law and safety on the streets would be the best overall rider.

Attaching a label of a "good rider" is subjective and vague for the most part.
What I think makes a good rider isn't applicable to the next person, but it's interesting hearing the responses.

I think TexLurch and Godsuki's opinions are pretty valid though.
