As Greg said, motorcycling is a calculated risk.  Problem is some folks don't calculate to well. 

Best advice I can give is to dress for the crash cause odds are if you ride long enough it will  happen.  And always ride as if you are invisible because to some folks you are.  You can add all the loud pipes, lights (flashing or not) and brightly colored clothing you like but there will still be folks that won't see you.  Heck I've witnessed people running into huge brightly painted fire trucks with flashing lights all over them and sirens and horns blaring.  Some folks just drive along in a fog.
