This doesn't apply to everyone, obviously, and is less of a problem in some parts of the country than in others.
However, When Pulling Out Into Traffic, CHECK FOR ONCOMING TRAFFIC FIRST BEFORE MOVING! This morning, some idiot on a Pulsar Avenger pulled out from the side of the road without looking as I was going by, and rode right into the back of my car. I saw him start to move, as I was about 10 meters away, going about 30kph. He never once looked over his shoulder or checked his mirrors. I sounded my horn, and moved further right (I was already in the right lane of a two-lanes-each-way road) to go around him. Somehow, he managed to ignore the horn, and ride from the shoulder to the center of the road and into the back corner of my car. He wasn't going that fast, so the only injury was to all the tacky chrome he had festooned his bike with, and to his dignity. He didn't even have the level of riding skill necessary to do a panic stop when he must have realized he was about to hit something (I was already mostly past him when he actually hit my car, and my car is *not* small, so he had to have seen me by the time he realized he was going to hit).
All motorcycle riders should know that they have to take responsibility for their own safety on the road. Yes, there are circumstances where, in an accident, the other driver is at fault, but the rider MUST do everything in their power to be safe. You cannot assume that being the smaller vehicle is going to absolve you of any need to protect yourself, and knowing you were "in the right" does you little good if you're dead. Know how to handle your bike, so you can stop or evade when you need to.
You also cannot ride as though you are either
a) the only vehicle on the road or
b) some sort of VIP to whom everyone must give way.
Get out of the habit of "splitting lanes" i.e. riding up between cars, either at intersections or especially when traffic is moving. Bikes don't have some sort of special right-of-way privilege that lets them ride like the rules don't apply. Encourage other riders you know to do the same. With the ever-increasing volume of cars on the road, especially cars that can out-accelerate most Indian bikes, you are no longer the most agile or quickest vehicle on the road, and if you try to cut between cars, you are very likely to just run out of room and get squished. I have seen this happen, when a rider cut up between a bunch of cars leaving an intersection. Everyone was all bunched up, and there was no room to maneuver, and the rider ended up bouncing off the two cars he was trying to get between.
