If you ride where drivers can’t see you, don’t be surprised if you experience a lot of close calls. Be as conspicuous as possible by choosing lane positions that place you where drivers can easily see you, either through their windows or in their mirrors. On the highway, this means not lingering in the area just behind the front doors, a.k.a. the blind spot. Make sure to ride through this danger zone and avoid changing lanes into a driver’s blind spot. Instead, accelerate ahead before moving over. Understand that you have blind spots too. Typical motorcycle mirrors aren’t great at revealing what’s behind you, so take a quick glance over your shoulder to be sure it’s safe before changing lanes.
