  1. Other Drivers Can Easily See Motorcyclists

Many motorcycle riders feel that drivers in passenger vehicles and trucks can easily see their bikes since they have greater visibility and larger mirrors to assist them. This is false. The smaller size of a motorcycle makes it easy for them to hide in a passenger vehicle’s or truck’s blind spots.

What is the quickest and easiest way for us to grow as human beings?  I would argue that one of the most effective ways is by changing our rituals or improving our habits.  If your goal is to become the “Best Version of Yourself” then you must have solid rituals, ones that you do every day.  And they must empower you.  We all know of people who have disempowering rituals.  Some use drugs, some use alcohol, and some overeat.  None of these options are what we are talking about.

An example of a positive ritual would be working out each days or a number of days per week.  Another would be waking in the morning an being thankful for every gift in your life.  Still another might be reading a chapter or so of a new book.  I try really hard to incorporate these examples into my daily rituals.

Simple physics dictates that when two objects collide the object that is smaller in size will experience the greatest damage.  This places drivers of small cars at an increased risk of sustaining severe injuries in a crash.
