Since this is the new riders forum and it is a place where yo can ask the "dumb" question etc and grow into riding safely I though I might share what I do to keep myself focused and better prepared for the road.
There is a forum known as Adventure Rider that is a superb place to learn how to tour and travel but it also has a section Face Plant that deals with riders (and friends) discussing their crashes and sometimes what witnesses saw when their friend went down (or died)
There are 2700 threads and sadly that number is growing and 68,000 posts, enough to keep you reading for years
I read it every Friday to get my mind focused on the weeks riding and to remind myself that lots of riders who are far better riders than me are dying and/or crashing /or being hit daily. I suggest some of you might want to do the same
It is not morbid if it saves your life
