    I leave the factory safety nets on and in use.
    I wear the factory seat belt.
    I wear a helmet.
    I wear goggles.
    I wear gloves.
    I pre-ride check.
    I post-ride check.
    I ride sober (as in a .000 bac)

    And most importantly, I try to keep the nut behind the wheel's ego in check so it doesn't write a check his machine and/or his own abilities can't cash.

    Accidents happen otherwise people would call them on purposes.

    I wear 4-Point harness.
    I will start to wear a helmet.
    I pre-ride check.
    I post-ride check.
    I ride sober (as in a .000 bac)

    And most importantly, I try to keep the nut behind the wheel's ego in check so it doesn't write a check his machine and/or his own abilities can't cash.

    Bad decisions definitely happen as well.

    Anyone familiar with the ladder of risk?

    Most people would jump off the 2nd or maybe even 3rd step of a ladder. By step 4 like 95% are out and wouldn't jump. But we all know that 1 guy that would jump off the top of it and break an ankle and then try it the next weekend from a taller ladder to see if the cast helps.

    I'm with @Eltobgi . Lights lights, lights. And I go over everything twice before a ride. And keep the speeds in check.

    I went retractable for two reasons:
    The manual Harnesses are a slight pain and I would be tempted to not use them for short distances or only use the lap portion.
    The retracts for the harnesses are mounted where they need to be mounted.

    So far they have caught when a sudden movement or shift initiated them to, but not when they aren't needed like the seatbelts on the 700, which if you were going slightly downhill they would activate even without a sudden movement.
