I just ride like I don't trust anybody. Mostly because I don't. Always give myself plenty of space between cars and am constantly assessing the road like a general over a battlefield. This all holds especially true of intersections. I pay very close attention to those approaching from the perpendicular. I position myself in a way that anticipates them to not see me. Nearly every car that has pulled in front of me, I knew was going to do it. They're the ones that approach the intersection faster than anyone else. And don't let yourself get too comfortable on the road. Motorcyclists that ride like they're in a car (road spacing and expecting to be seen) are just as responsible for an accident as the car that hit them.
