motorcycle do's and don'ts

do you mind posting your personal do's and don'ts in riding motorcycle such as
example // I don't ride thats why I am looking for a few quick do's and don'ts

I will take Riding school , but I thought if I can just see what people think that will be great.

don't
- don't fix your mirror while riding

do
- get reflective gear so you're more noticeable at night / day

Don't go squid.
Don't drink and ride.
Don't stunt on public streets cause you think it is cool.
Don't ride sleepy.

Do get the best helmet that fits the best that you can afford.

Do not ride illegally without a liscence.
Do not let others influence how you ride.

I'm sure there are more, but I am trying to finish up to leave work early.

Do assume that everyone on the road is actively trying to commit vehicular manslaughter
Do take the long way if you're commuting (my 35km commute to my weekend job is ~75km every time i take my bike )

don't take a passenger with you until you have a lot of experience under your belt for your safety and theirs.
don't get road rage, just let it go if someone ie cuts you off

do get a full face helmet no matter what bike you ride imo
do take the nicer route to your destination if you have the time

Don't pop it in neutral at a stop light. Expect the person to rear end you every time, so plan accordingly.

Do warm up your bike and tires beforehand.

Don't swerve left and right in your lane, thinking that it will warm up your tires. Acceleration is key to tire warming.

DO: Assume everyone on the road is out to get you, and trying to kill you. Trust no one, leave nothing to chance.

DON'T: Assume others can see you, or have already seen you. Trust no one, leave nothing to chance.

do- always ride in your own comfort zone at your own pace
always keep your eye on the fuel and know exactly how many KM you have-always carry some CASH just in case for gas...
-AGATT

dont- trying to keep up with friends or other riders that you know are faster then you. if you are in a group ride, they WILL stop down the road and wait for you
- dont pass on double solid blind corners

dont crack open throttle or brake hard on either side of train tracks the plastic/composite is slick.
do have ur bike in 1st gear at a busy intersection when stopped,cuz if the guy behind u doesnt notice ur stopped its either rip outta the way or "rearender" which means splat.i had to run the redlight to avoid a guy not paying attn,i watched in my mirror and he didnt even slow down ,i just barely avoided him by accelerating QUICK
