My vote...
All the above and then some.

When i am riding, all the above and then some except hoggging becomes major hazards.

How a rider can avoid those surprise change of direction?
Myself as i am about to overtake i will look thru the rear windscreen to see the driver (what the drivier is doing, where he is looking) then look at the rear lights just in case the driver signal at the last possible second before i overtake while keeping an eye at the vehicle front tire. Its going to look like i am about to rob the driver but it saves me multiple time.

Texting...driver just cant keep in the lane..all over the place. If i am driving i will make a gap just in case that car suddenly accident or brake. If i am riding i will positioned my bike in a way my headlight will shoot at the car side mirror to get the attention of the driver. Once i got the driver attention i will overtake in disgust.

Another bad habbit i hate very much be it i am riding or driving is que jumper. They just cut in despite seeing other user in their mirror. There is one very satisfying accident i saw at Krubong traffic light heading to Stadium Hang Jebat (Melaka). This Innove is cutting que on the left and the light turns red. The driver could not cut in thanks to defensive driving of obedient road users thus he became a blockade on the susur to left. A 40 foot trailer is trying to go left and and honk, Innova driver does not budge and 40 footer driver squeeze thru. I can still hear the satisfying 'crack' sound as the body of the trailer smashes the Innova side mirror and damages the front left door and fender. The looks of the Innova driver is priceless. He just try to looked cool as he drives away but i wal giggling in my helmet.

When I ride mcycle, I hate those people who speed to overtake you , get in front ,then slow down to exit left. I mean bloody hell why not just drive slowly behind me then cut left. That way you wont make me brake hard. Really , kena so many times.

Cant slow down lah...we riders are inferior road user compared to them. they must stay ahead of us. How many time does a driver die2 want to overtake u when u are following a car? They dont mind squeezing u out of the way and follow a car, as long as they dont follow rider.

Text while driving is the worse coz the most dangerous. Another similar one is taking photos at speedo to show off top speeds! They think it's cool and macho but it's actually stupid and highly irresponsible.

Some other bad habits:
- Double/triple parking, very annoying habit everywhere!
- Busy body slowing down a lot to look at accidents causing more unnecessary traffic jams. I always honk these people kaw kaw!
- Cornering not maintaining their lane, either cutting inside the apex on entry or going out wide on exit, like the road is a track, while not checking surrounding properly! Just total dumb ass driving!
- Too slow reactions on traffic lights, like the road belongs to their mothers and just taking their own sweet time to move, often also because looking at phones. Sorry to say too many Malaysians are guilty of this, very annoying.
- U-turn wide to the other lane and not maximising the steering lock, just lazy slow hands!
- Tail gating to ask for a way thru even at high speeds, just reckless and stupid. High beams and horns are there for a reason, use them please!
- Motorbikes squeezing and hitting side mirrors, very careless.
- Motorbikes going thru redlights or going opposite directions, again just reckless and irresponsible.
- Parking at OKU spots, I hope karma hit them!

Nope, I don't do any of those in my list! I do occasionally take corners out-in-out like on track but I make sure no other vehicles around. Many others are just having too lazy hands so they go more straight without realizing got other cars on other lanes, potentially causing accidents.

The only guilty driving I admit still doing is driving over the speed limits because they're just too damn ancient and slow! (But honestly even if the limits increased to 160kph I would still be guilty going over it, but just a lot less frequenty).

those double/triple parking real idiot and worst attitude. They are those always do it and treat it as a norm. Refuse to try finding a parking and just throw their car and walk away. Just place a number and expect you to call. When you called them, they don't bother to apologise and show you that mother fucker lan-see look "why the heck you call me... I'm busy" real retard.

I admit sometimes when i am riding i do run red lights. Its only done when it suddenly rain and its safe for me and others. I do that to get to the nearest shade be it building or tree. Once change to wet gear, i will stop at red light.
For those out there whom wonder why some rider ride thru the rain without wearing rain gear...its any one of the below;
1.we have save & secure critical item such as electronics and wallet.
2.we have done No 1 and we r riding home.
3.we forget our wet gear and the rain is not heavy when we begin..once we get wet as the rain becomes heavier we r like 'alang-alang telur dh basah'.

I hit a Nissan Serena side mirror once. It was raining in the morning and still dark. It was a gentle 'thud'. I stop in front of the car(it was red light), acknowledge my mistake and the driver nod his head.
For me, car and roads share the road. I kinda hate it when filtering thru car and suddenly there is one car stopping not in the middle of the lane causing rider to cilok to another lane. When i drive or stopping, i make sure i stay in line with the car in front so the gap between car on both side allow biker to cilok safely.

Oh and before i forget, drivers....please pay attention when a group of biker purposedly looked like they want to run the redlight despite seeing u coming. Most of the time they honk and rev their engine to get your attention. They are not thugs but there is an emergency service vehicle stuck way down the que at the red light. Please slow down and stop when its safe. I know its not the rights of the biker to do so but thats the least rider can do to assist emergency vehicle.

No, I meant we maximize the steering lock la. Of course our cars cannot make normal radius but the least we do is still maximize it. Some other buggers with small cars U-turn so big coz the hands so lazy to full lock even though their cars should be able to make much smaller radius! Often also happens with bikes! Those are the ones I call up as idiots!

No offence but I don't accept running thru redlights for whatever reason aside for emergency or authorized vehicles such as police, ambulance, fire fighters, or some one is dying. Rain is just water, no harm for you to get wet for just extra 1-2 mins. You may think you're safe enough until suddenly accidents happen, then only you know better. Not only you get injured but you bring misery to the one who hit you, is it worth getting saving just a few extra mins getting wet??

As for hitting mirrors, too many bikers did so but just run away.

Worse, you call they don't pick up or needs several attempts before answered! Then wait don't know how many minutes before they show up! Very egotistical dumb ass people like this and unfortunately it becomes almost like a custom here in Malaysia! Sigh...

- Parking at OKU spots, I hope karma hit them!
This one happened one time at shopping complex parking lot. That time my daughter still young. Was a weekend so we know the place will be packed, so we look for further parking and walk. As we reach the lift area, there was an OKU parking. A Mercedes came and park there and came out the driver, his wife and 2 kids. We just press the lift button and was waiting. As the family walk towards us, my daughter just said, they OKU meh? The driver heard and turn to use the stairs........lol
