    Distractions on the road

    We all know just how easy it is to get distracted while riding your bike, and how dangerous it is when you allow yourself to take focus off of the road. What do you do to avoid such situations when you're on your bike?

    One rule that I never break is to never, ever look at my phone while riding my bike. No matter how important I think it might be, I never check my phone till I've reached where I'm going.

    The best tip that I could give anyone is to never let your guard down. You should always practice situational awareness and always be alert. Don't get in other drivers' blind spots. You should always be ready to react in a split moment if you have to. Try to maintain a safe distance and ample space around you so that you have time to react safely in case someone changes lanes without signalling, for example.

    Make sure your bike is in perfect working order for riding at night. Your headlights and tail lights should be in working order and you should make sure that you can be seen by other drivers by upgrading to brighter lights.

    These are all really great pieces of advice. Put them all together, and you have one very safe rider. I always put safety first, and I'm proud to say that I've never been in an accident since I started riding a bike.

    Consider your surroundings. If you're in the city with a lot of traffic, constant attention is mandatory. If you're out in the country with little to no traffic, you can sight see a bit.

    You cannot afford a single moment of absent-mindedness while on the road. I always tell folks that riding a motorcycle calls for more awareness and responsibility than being a motorist. Safety comes first, always. I always ensure that my concentration is at its peak.

    Nearly hit a wooden pallet that fell from a truck.
