Here are the best tips I can give you after 50 years of motorcycle riding ....
1: You are invisible. Car, truck, bus, tram and all other drivers can't see you.
2: Don't ride your bike like you drive a car. Use the bike to cut through traffic to get to the front, then go!
3: Aggressive-defensive riding is your best chance of survival. Be forceful, but courteous.
4: Never relax. You need to be 100% awake in traffic. Be aware of what is around you.
5: Ride like every one else is trying to kill you!
6: Get a good set of rear view mirrors so you can see behind you easily.
7: Look ahead. See the gaps. Be smooth, not erratic. Use your indicators. Don't let the cage drivers dictate the terms, slip through them like an eel and get clear road.
Hopefully, you will survive to be a grumpy old bastard bike rider like me...
