What superstitions about riding do you have?

a lot of us are superstitious about certain things:
1. how to avoid tickets
2. how to avoid an accident
3. having to take something "LUCKY" with you (in your pocket, etc.)

for me...
on my 2002 BMW K1200LT, the gear shift often broke from the factory secondary to the inherent weakness of a connecting bolt. after having it fixed, i always carried an extra one with me... i still carry it today whenever i ride... sort of a LUCKY CHARM for me

what about you?

I dont do this for superstitious reasons, but I have a little gremlin that rides along on my monster. Since I added clip-ons to the bike, the stock risers are empty. This gremlin rides in the hole of the stock risers... Most of the time I don't know he's there until someone pulls him out.... whereupon I snatch him out of their hands, and put him back into his hole....

I try to ride 5 to 10 mph faster than traffic, no matter what the conditions, so I dont get run over. I also will almost aways pull to the head of a column of traffic when sitting at a light, for the same reason. Lastly, I stay as far away as possible from minivans and suv's. Other than that, if I have faith, why worry?
