I was out riding today and I made a realization about my riding style: I basically ride with the assumption that any driver may, at any given time, do the stupidest and most dangerous possible thing to injure or kill me. I've been riding streetbikes for about 7-8 years and I've found that this mindset has really helped me avoid some nasty situations. The one thing that I do that may be considered unusual, though, is to ride through an intersection where, say, there's a car on my right waiting to cross. I keep a close eye on the driver with my hands over the brake and clutch in case the cager decides to pull out and T-bone me, but I also keep my legs tensed so that, if there is no chance for me to avoid being hit, I can jump onto the hood of the car and avoid having my leg crushed. Does anyone else do anything like this? Am I being overly cautious? Or foolish?
