I feel for the ones they left behind, but I am sure there is not a section of paved road anywhere near here that is the problem. Almost every crash I have read about on here could been easily avoided.

You don't want to be lumped in with the rest of the motorcycling community. Or you're special because you have not been the reason for a for a R.I.P. thread.

I understand your second point, most of are avoidable. Just because they may have made a bad decision or were a less experiance rider does make them any different then you or I. My heart weeps for any motorcyclist who dies riding, maybe because they did'nt live long enough to become a wise motorcyclist before a mistake took their life.

Maybe I have become jaded with my distance traveled via roadways....somewhere in the nature of 3 million miles, no,not one of those are passenger miles. No I am not joking.
I have had ONE, crash in the last.......25 years. There was no way I could have avoided it. Yes the woman had her head up her . Cost me one front end on an XT350.


I have watched all sorts of stupid. I have watched good people get killed because of idiots....LOTS of idiots. 99% of every crash can be avoided if they take their head out of their . I have held dying kids' hands.

So, yes, I am "special". And NO, I rarely feel for the idiots, just the ones they left behind or the people they dragged into their stupidity.


Plus, I would rather die riding than any other way. If I die on a bike, it will be because I was doing something stupid, a mechanical malfunction, or both.
Don't ever weep for me. Throw a party, because its been a helluva ride

RIP - always sad.

I have to agree with Thumper. I'm not saying cars don't come over in my lanes, my wheels don't wash out in turns, or I make idiotic decisions occasionally, but I'm always expecting it, watching for it, adjusting my riding accordingly. There are close calls every day; there don't have to be accidents with every close call.

There are ways to slow down in a turn without standing the bike up and going wide into the grass/fence. There are ways to handle a washed out rear tire. And there are ways to alleviate most of the bad decisions that you or I may make on a motorcycle, such as going too fast into a curve, missing a stop sign/light, locking up brakes, etc.

It's all in how you react to and handle each situation.
