Watch the car ahead of you, and the one ahead of that, and the one ahead of that. And the one behind you.

Own your lane - it's yours to use so don't ride in the gutter - aim slightly left of centre.

Horse shit on the road is to be avoided, so are the horses you'll find around the next bend.
+1 on that.

my bike has a rubbish horn, now as a fixed silencer so it not to loud, plus i only wear my hi-viz gear if i ride in fog.
