I'm not a motorcycle rider because I need more than two points of contact with the ground and I really don't care for making my head the third point. I know a lot of riders and they always tell me there are certain things to keep in mind when on the road. Here's a partial list:
Carry a spare key.
Check your bike carefully every morning on the road.
Eat at weird times. Everyone else eats at 8 a.m., noon and 6 p.m.
Pack extra bungees and zip-ties.
Stash a little hidden cash on your bike or yourself so you can make something happen if you need to.
Now, you will notice that the bike in this photo is carrying one extra item. A bomb! He must know something.
