Bloomin Cagers... some of these clips are scary!

Lots of vehicles being hit from behind!

My worst fear when out on the bike is being hit from the rear when stationary in traffic. So here is a good tip... whenever you have to stop in traffic, always leave plenty of space between you and the car in front and keep a little bit to the side. Visualise where your escape route would be if you see a problem looming behind you to quickly move out of harms way - and keep glancing in your mirrors checking out whats happening behind you.

Too many bikers get into a bad habit of stopping and waiting right behind a car, leaving you no escape route if the worst should happen.

On your next ride out, start trying to build this in whenever you have to stop in built up traffic.

Ride safe all.  :305:
