Iv'e got 35+ years of riding and I agree to take a motorcycle riding course. In the meantime, here are a few obvious tips. Drive defensively, don't drive in drivers blind spots, watch out in intersections for vehicles turning left. Make yourself highly visible (you already partially do this with the color of you bike), black bikes, black cloths and helmets look good but there not always easy to see (especially at dusk). Bright clothing & helmets, lots of lights on bike are all heplfull. Learn to use your front brake, it can be your enemy if not used correctly in certain situations, but don't depend on your back brake if you have to stop on a dime. The last thing I'd say is pay attention to what the other guy is doing because he probably isn't paying attention to you. I'm sure other people here can give you dozens of more tips.
