totally agree..but . u just cant expect the unexpected just prepare for it if it happens. gut feelin are when u think to much of what can happen or have other things in mind, we ride motorcycles is bound to happen with some.

I have to disagree. We control 96.72% of what happens. Each percent left after that can also be compartmentalized.

After 6 years of racing, I got that gut feeling one day at Cresson...I bought the farm. In 20 years of riding, that's the only time I've ever gone down hard and it took out my left shoulder and right foot. Listen to that gut!!!

You can make a choice to ride everyday and learn the roads at a slow pace so that you know what roads are good and bad and which ones have the potential to be bad and what percentage of the time they are fcked up.

thats deeeeep

I will admit for the first 3 years that I started riding I had doubt, and I wrecked.

Now 12 years of riding, If I were to have doubt I would have been dead a long time ago.

All you need to do is have serious respect and trust in the laws of physics and gravity and you will be a good rider. However become one with your bike and you will be a GREAT rider.

sometimes ghosts tell me to drink beer and smoke blunts. so I listen to their awesome wisdom. after that I just tell them to off, cuz if I didn't do something just cuz I got a feeling I'd never leave the house.

Yeah Sometimes I get a un easy feeling before a ride.
Usually I just supress it and make a note to self to be more cautious.
Had it real strong on the day I had a misshap on my Busa, I also failed to be more cautious that day.

Actually I have more of a fear of getting a ticket though than an actual incident.

But I do not ride on Mothersday or my Daughters Birthday.

Good luck.

Bikes should be put away on special days / holidays. No one wants such a black cloud looming over everyones head and forever tainting a holiday with such sorrow.

Youall need to stop smoking yourselves retarded. hahahah. Drive everyday. buy diferent bikes so you can get a good understanding of what your bikes can do. each bike can have different characteristics.

I never have a gut feeling about whether or not to ride. I mean do you ever have a gut feeling that maybe you shouldnt take sht today. I didnt think so. Riding a bike to me is just as important as brushing my teeth, taking a shower, eating some cereal. Its part of my life.

that's a really lame theory. a lot of people commute on bikes, are they supposed to just walk cuz some people embrace superstition or being spooked out by a case of the Maybe's comes along?
totally illogical.

Only speaking from my perspective mang. That doesn't apply to me because my bike isn't my only form of transportation, I have 3 cars to choose from as well. The bike is a toy, as it is for the majority of riders. IMO you shouldn't own a bike unless you have a cage as well... Just my .02.

My mom once told me not to ride to my friends house.It was night and she had a gut feeling.It almost spooked me.When I got to my friend's driveway I dropped the bike.It caused the rearset bracket to break.It was an uncomfortable ride home...

I use to have a car and a bike now just a bike.I could sell the bike to have a car but fuc it I love riding.

When its time to go you're going rain or shine.
