The majority of motorcycle vs other vehicle collisions occur within 45 degrees of head-on to the motorcycle. How do you know if on coming traffic sees you, to avoid turning left in front of you or crossing into your lane? When you ride close to the center line, if on-coming traffic sees you, they will usually move right to increase the the distance between you and them. If they move right, you know that they see you. That is the only way you know.This does not work, if the driver thinks you are challenging them, or they are a wide load. Try it, and you will see how many times it works. I am 75 years old, with a million miles, most on BMW's and have never had a head-on near miss.
