I told one of my friends that I am getting a bike, she replied saying she would have to look out for me on the bike now. I think this is a good thing, as she will now be more aware of other motorbikers and hopefully this will mean one less car to worry about when we are on the roads. Now just to educate the others Personally I am in the belief that you should be checking for objects not no. of tail-lights as to whether you should pull out or not. What other ways have you found to help in awareness of drivers?
