It is a scary world out there, especially on 2 wheels with all these crazy/distracted drivers out there. I find it humbling when im driving my car... I always look twice for motorcycles, but that's because I ride. There have been several times where i only noticed the motorcycle at second glance, and I think "wow, how did I miss that on the first look." When we ride, we are focused, and can see everything around us, especially vehicles. Unfortunately cagers cannot see us as easily, and just don't pay enough attention. We always wonder how they miss us, but i'm sure if you have driven a car, you have experienced a moment where you swore that motorcycle just came out of nowhere. Loud pipes, loud horns, and high beams are all great, but ultimately we need more than that to be seen and avoid accidents. We have to always assume that the car in front/behind/next to us does not see us, and prepare accordingly. I try to play scenarios out in my head, and try to think of a plan if a car takes a certain action. Glad everything worked out, ride safe!
