R U A Better Cager?

Well, I was driving to work today and I was cut off twice... well the first time wasn't too close of a call but the second one was close... It could have been really bad if I weren't assuming that the woman was going to pull out without looking... Fortunately since I began riding I always assume that people are going to do things like change lanes without looking or signaling, pull out into traffic when they shouldn't, and slam on their brakes they don't need to...

My question is since you have begun riding on two do you think that you have become a better cager too?

I've anticipated people doing stupid crap since I started driving, but since getting on a bike, I AM a bit more alert to dangerous drivers.

Absolutely. Several of us have said we think EVERYONE should ride a motorcycle at least once, just so they have an idea of what it feels like to be totally invisible... I honestly think it makes you much more aware of your surroundings, and possibly more courteous.

110% sure it has!

I have took several safety driving coarses thru work... and each time I tell the instructor that none of what he is teaching is worth half of what I learned on two!
