Just to share my years of experience in riding. From 150cc to 1000cc, there's always a level of confidence that you will need to prepare yourself each day: the road conditions, the traffic, the culture and even navigating yourself around town, cities and countries. Every part has its own complexity and diversity that you will need to learn and understand. Even if you know you are faster than others, there's always comes to an amount of respect that you should do. If you want to race, trash it out on the track or a short circuit.
Religion and respect other religions is a first, then learn to respect the road. Why so? Because everyday every where there will always be a story of how people died in horrible accidents or even small tiny mishaps that will cost your life. You might never know how fruitful your life will be if you live in a short straw. Always be alert and give 110-120% attention to your riding. Had 2 major accidents before and luckily it didn't cost me any legs lost and other bodily harm.
Also, check whether everything is fine before riding your bike. If there's something amiss, just stop at the side or slow down on your way to your destination. No use panicking halfway through the traffic if some things are amiss. Importance is your safety and your pillion if there's any.
Never rely on GPS too much. Sometimes it's better you memorise the way to your destination on the map rather than rely on gadgets. You will know your way around and backtrack it.
Lane splitting. Always take a reference from your mirrors or handlebars to measure the gap in between cars and trucks. Take note of the direction of their front wheels. It helps alot for you to judge whether the driver is swerving to your direction or overtaking other vehicles.
