Good for you and well done for making the fun and earth-friendly decision to commute by motorcycle.
I’d suggest getting some more experience under your belt before doing it full time though, as rush hour traffic and the freeway can present challenges that you may not be ready for yet. Maybe commute one day a week at first; Friday is good as you’re more likely to take it easy.
Once you feel confident, and I know it’ll be tough not to, but DON’T try to emulate the “good” (i.e. fast) riders who weave easily through traffic. Think *safety*, not speed; you’re only going to work after all I see one of those “good” riders lying beside a smashed-up bike at the side of the freeway about once every week or two here in the S.F. Bay Area. I’m not trying to scare you, just make you aware of the dangers if you’re not careful (and possibly even if you are). You might also want to fit a loud after-market horn, and use it to wake-up the car drivers who change lanes without looking over their shoulder to see into their blind spot (or don’t even look in their wing mirrors).
On the freeway (or anywhere), try to leave at least two seconds stopping distance between you and the car in front (four seconds on wet roads) because now and again, traffic will come to a dead stop when you’re not expecting it to and that can be fatal. If that does happen and you can’t stop in time (which if you’d left enough distance between you and the car in front you would have been able to), you can always lane-split in between the cars, legal or not, as a ticket is preferable to a crippling injury or death. Make sure you wear good protective gear too just in case. Also make sure that you get your bike serviced/safety-checked regularly. Look well ahead so you can anticipate trouble so that means don’t get stuck behind trucks or vans which obscure your view of the road ahead.
