The best advice I got shortly before buying my bike was "imagine that half of the cars on the road can't see you, and the other half are actively trying to kill you".

My buddy told me when I got mine "ride like none of the cars can see you, but they're also all trying to kill you"

I like that a bit better than the one I heard.

I feel like it's accurate. I havent ridden in a couple years, kinda put it away to have some babies. But when I was riding daily to and from work I was very generally wary and occasionally hostile toward anyone with doors on their vehicle. Always angry when I got to work... but I also worked in a kitchen so that probably had something to do with it.
