That is a good write up MoM. It actually applies to both sexes. I actually keep a twenty and my registration and proof of insurance under my rear seat.

This is awesome!!!

Men should read this also. We all have to be smart on our bikes. If you are not aware of your surroundings then a lot of bad things can happen.

I wear a medical necklace and also have a medical I'd card in my wallet as I have an artificial heart valve.

Normally wallet goes Ito top pocket of jacket if I'm cruising around

First off, what a bunch of great pointers. My cpl class went over this a little bit. I think they should really emphasize these points to new drivers as well.

And personally I think her riding gear is perfect. There's no need for more gear.

Having worked law enforcement for 4 years in the "Great" city of Detroit, there is pretty much one thing I see or hear from victims that rings true the most.

LACK OF SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.

The first question I would ask would be, " Were you alone in the parking lot?"
And pretty much 99.99999% of the time the victim would state, " I don't know I was looking at the ground, the sky, my car/bike, in my purse, pretty much any where else but my situation around me."

Please people if there is one piece of self saving advice I can give is, keep your head up, on a swivel, be alert, and know who belongs in the area and who doesn't. If you see anything out of place or it doesn't feel right, trust your instinct. Fall back to a place of safety and watch from a distance.

Is that guy with the black hoodie with his hood up lurking the parking lot for someone, or is he just the nightly janitor that cleans your place of work in the evening taking a break?

Is that darkly tinted car parked next to yours occupied or believed to be occupied? Are those stickers on the side of car gang related?

If you still feel un-sure, ask a co-worker, friend, boss, who ever to walk you out to your car/bike.

We've all seen the Discovery Channel, about how the great predators of the world 99% of the time go after the weak, the sick, and the dumbest one that hasn't a clue of whats going on around them. Same rings true to criminals, easy prey is just that EASY PREY.
