Motorcycling in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.

45N right out of downtown is worse. I thank every time I drove on 45 that when the wife and I moved from Louisiana, we chose the west side and 59S.

Think of the squids and how they'll turn out if swiped. What about the Asians that already cant drive slow!

That will make them(asians) panic more and drive slower. They tend to draw back like a turtle when they are in fast traffic. Also they are too busy trying to watch their speed gauge.
