Walk the dog, move one of the cars out of the garage, pull the bike out, start it, let it warm up while I put my gear on.

I think of my Uncle who was killed on a bike.

If you're not nervous, or don't think twice about the dangers of being on a bike, you will probably go out too confident or cocky...

I rub a pic of valentino rossi all over my body, drink a 1/2 glass of flat bud light, put super glue on my left boot (no reason I just have extra superglue and need to use it somewhere), turn the bike on and start it, sniff superglue from boot, stretch (while only wearing a cycleskin right boot) in very disturbing manner so others are uncomfortable watching, take off right boot, put on suit, put right boot back on, helmet, left boot sniff and then put on, zip suit, gloves on left first, state "Iam a glorious pony rider" very loudly, take off warmers, and go ride.

Seems to work well...

Sorry I couldn't resist.

I just get on and ride

Yep, very true, that's why I think most have some sort of rituals... I know personally I say a prayer, doesn't matter to me who's up there watching, even if no one is watching.

I check my brake lights, with the foot and the hand switch almost every time I ride. I'm just paranoid of getting plowed over, and it eases my mind some knowing I at least have half a chance of being seen lol.

stop being butthurt when your thread discovers a tangent line it wants to follow, it's how they all are on here.

I'm not religious, I don't pray. I think about how gross road rash will look on my body, and try to make sure it doesn't happen.

...and what jim said. I take a piss.

I go over my bike periodically to ensure it's in safe working order, but I don't do it before every ride unless it's been ages. I put on my boots, my helmet, my jacket, my gloves, start that pig up and motor off.

The morning dump. Lifelong ritual.

As for riding rituals, stretch, put on jacket and boots. Start bike, put in ear plugs, toss on lid and gloves. Ride.
