You can not sit there and tell me that each person that has owned a motorcycle, has crashed in some form, at one time. That's just entirely not true and I wouldn't want people telling me that my first time on a motorcycle. It's just stupid and I would think anyone with common sense would know that can't possibly be true.

Sure, motorcycle mishaps are common, and easy to come by. That's about as far as it goes.
OK OK, you win. GO through life thinking that way and let us go through life assuming the worst.

Live and let live or crash and let crash or not....

Or you could just die an old man who used to ride motorcycles and never wrecked

It's fine. It's not that big of a deal. You go on like tejano said, assuming the worst and waiting for your turn to hit the pavement and I'll go on riding alert and aware like I do... not awaiting the pavement.

tell you what. talk to as many old school bikers and tell us how many have been riding 20+ years and never had an incident. I'll bet you can't find 1 old dude that doesn't have at least one mishap. I have yet to meet one. I though I had, there was a guy who had been riding for 20+ years without so much as dropping his bike. then one day he got hit by a car and killed him. lost his lucky streak.

Well you're like... one person, in the entire world. So, I most definitely wouldn't use you, or even motohouston as a whole, to based statistics off of

There are millions of people out there you know....

That's besides the fact. I'm not arguing that it's likely you'll wreck, but I don't understand why to some of you it's more of a waiting game to go down... it's like setting yourself up for failure. I have known people that have ridden for 10+ years just like some of you guys, and have never had one mishap. You don't have to become a "statistic".
No, statistics can be abused and twisted... the problem lies in the people not the data. You're pretty frigging stupid to just blow them off.

Some REAL facts.


You/We are NOT superman.
We do NOT CONTROL the enviroment around us.

You/we can only try to be observant enough, to try to reduce the risks present in the environment around us. The statement
Quote:
it's not if you go down it's when
is a reminder of that fact. Nothing more, it's not meant to scare or intimidate, but remind and prepare someone for the risks involved...because like it or not, the risk riding is greater than 'caging'.

You're right about everything you've just said. I still dont see where any of that has to mean, "you will crash one day, so just know that ahead of time."

regardless of whether it's true or not, I hate it when people tell me that .

Sure, our sport is riskier than others but most of us are aware of that already. I don't need you dipshits to be in my ear all day telling me if I haven't fallen yet, I'm going to. It's like someone telling you that you're gonna die eventually every time they see you. It's true but we don't need to hear it. No one stops me before I get in my car and says, "you know, there's two kinds of drivers, ones that have wrecked, and ones that are going to wreck".

I have noticed that the ones that say that are usually the ones that wreck often. be alert, don't be scared. and look for the escape route, not the route to the pavement. I hope all of you other wreck your bikes and stfu.

and yea, somebody in my Cheerios and the milk was already old so you.

There are too many scrubs that believe they're the exception to the rule, a large portion of which tends to make a big mess when they do.

You're born, you grow up...the longer you live, the greater the 'chance' that you're going to get sick or get injured.


(btw tough versatile)


Put it this way, make it 25 years... then come back and tell us that the statistics are shyte and us 'old guys' don't have a clue.
