Yup! Those are all good tips.
Letting larger vehicles run interference is also useful on four wheels in bad weather. During a snowstorm, for instance, I like to follow a semi-truck. If some fool up ahead does something stupid and causes a multi-car wreck, then that truck will clear a nice, safe path for me. Not that I really want any such thing to happen. I drive careful and I'm not likely to cause any chain wrecks. But if someone ahead of me does, then I don't want to be in it.
I also agree with scanning not just the roadway, but all around. Keep an eye on traffic approaching from cross streets, for instance. Looking those people right in the eye is a good idea.
