What your replies do mean is that your mind work about as logically as a toaster.

YOU SHOULD EMBRACE FEAR EVERY TIME YOU PUT A LEG OVER YOUR BIKE.
So, if you guys are telling me that you dont have any fear when you ride, then that must mean you think you are invincible and that nothing can happen to you.
So, I ride with fear in my heart and an honest appreciation of everything that can go wrong. This fear tempers my actions and keeps me riding safer.
Ive been down 3 times on the street and everytime I enter an intersection I cringe. I know what wrecking feels like and I know Ive been lucky, but I still fear what could happen.

Tell me that Im going to become a "statistic" because I dont let fear prevent me from riding is idiotic.

So, let recent moto deaths keep you off your bike for a week, and go ahead thinking ill be a statistic soon, thats fine. Im going to keep my fear in check, respect my bike and cherish my life.

If you let fear make your decisions then you are not free nor are you free thinking.
Whatever you say, but when something in the back of your mind say's "maybe not today" and you do it anyway...........sooner or later you'll become a statistic. Ignoring it and saying I've got my fear in check and all that other BS is stupid.

No need for the popcorn here, Im mature enough to stay away from the drama. Me and Brutus obviously have differing views, and it should be left at that.

The day I had my wreck, I felt that same"bad feeling" I was far away from home and was with my friends....so i said "**** it" and kept going.....I later paid the price with a broken ankle. Luckily, that was it, could have and SHOULD have been alot worse.... Since then and Brianna being born, I dont ride like that on the street any more.

+1 and I am sorry if the following is too wordy but here it goes...

If I am not 100% into it, I dont ride. But I will tell you now that fear will never stop me from riding. I am not afraid someone is going to do something that will cause me to react, I know when I turn the key on that it WILL happen and I am not afraid, I am accepting... I try to be ready.
No, I have yet to seriously go down on a bike... 4wheelers yea, I have to say I have had some serious pain from those accidents, but never a bike.
One thing I do know though is that it is ALWAYS a possibility and I accept that. Same as I know that each shift I begin at work could be my last.

There have been many times I have pushed my limits and thought holy what just happened. I have always chalked that up to not panicking/skill and prayer (it comforts me o.k.).
I used to be the biggest squid... no helmet, no gear what so ever. Just my jeans, tennies and a muscle shirt and Oakleys. It took me doing 135mph+ around the loop and pulling my bike out of the garage the next morning to find my brand new front tire flowering from dry rot (from have set too long on the shelf at the dealers). That is when I thought I had pushed my last limit. THAT actually did scare me and was probably the first time I ever felt fear from something other than a human. So I took the advise of Noctem and Train460 and started wearing my gear. (THANKS GUYS!) But I was wrong, I still on occasion find my limits at edge and then I will back down.

I really just want to say this...
A rider is only as good as his skill, If the skill limit is pushed (whether it be by choice or not) there is a possibility of a problem.
You CANNOT tell people where THEIR skill limit is, only they know this.
You CANNOT tell people to stop riding just because some people have pushed THEIR limits and are now a memory.
You CANNOT tell people that they will become a statistic because of the way they ride or that they choose to ride at all.
But you CAN understand that WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT and have our OWN riding styles and set our OWN limits.
My only suggestion to anyone is that If you do not like they way someone rides... stay away from them, who knows you just might be saving your own life that day.

Don't let fear control you, but don't think it can't happen to you too.

RIP to the rider

I think the world would be a much happier place if everyone gave up their 600 and liters and just bought an EX500 :icon_bigg . jk, but honestly, this happens every time some kid runs into the back of a vehicle or gets t boned going 100+...we make a thread about it, and the old riders shake their fingers and say ", young uns, when are they going to learn" then some other guy gets on and says "well, im a noob, but i dont ride like that", then someone else says "well, this is why street riding is stupid, go to the track". As long as there are motorcycles, or vehicles in general for that matter, people are going to get killed. Sometimes they could have prevented it, sometimes they didnt have a way out; until we abandon all forms of transportation and go back to walking our happy around like this is going to happen. People are people, some die, some don't, some live to go on to convalescent homes once they turn 80, some get smushed by a car in their mid twenties. im not looking forward to my first accident, but i know that by using my bike as my daily driver im very likely to get into an accident before my higher education years are over (especially since I live in a college town). happens, all that I can really say is ride like there IS a tomorrow and you want to see it, maintain your bike, and wear your ****ing gear.

Motorcyclist dies after slamming into 18-wheeler

Police say three men on motorcycles were weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed. One of them ran into the back of an 18-wheeler near 43rd.Street. The motorcyclist was pulled under and dragged by the semi for about 100 yards. He was killed.

A second motorcyclist also crashed, but suffered only minor injuries. The freeway was completely shut down for more than two hours as a result.

Another one bites the dust.
