Hmmm. I do the common ones:
Tank drum at stoplights, sing, blinker cancel, see if I can dead stop with feet up, crack my neck, weave back and forth if the road is too straight.

Mostly I sing really loud to the the heavy music I have blaring in my ears which makes me concentrate even harder on my riding. I also "dance" and headbang, especially at stops :slide: :slide: :slide: :slide: :slide:

Yea, I always think it's on when it's not

When I change lanes I purposely avoid the reflectors in the lane
And when there is no traffic what so ever I swerve in and out or the dotted line.

For some odd reason I sing "Peaceful Easy Feeling" by the Eagles. It calms me down and helps me concentrate if I am pushing a little. I used to race BMX and I would always sing it to myself while racing...oh and I also sing the Cheerios cereal commercial theme song..."you got go with Cheerios..."

I mess with the mp3 player all the time changing songs really makes my wife upset when I am doing that instead of paying attention to the road. I also keep a listerine spray bottle in a pocket on the wing and I refresh my mouth regulary.

Sing when I'm cruising, play the drums on my tank at redlights, and when I'm hitting long sweepers I scream really really loud, like a war cry or something

I like to turn my head from side to side and move it lower than the wind screen to make different wind noises around my helmet.

I'm guilty of this as well! When I'm cruising I'm always looking for that extra gear!
