[I was determined not to wreck, I'm a very contientious rider but I didn't make it through my first year. First time was below - not my fault]

Interesting that's the exact bike that I have. I've also noticed that Cavaliers and Sunfires with those flowers on the rear-view mirrors are deathtraps.

PoPo - let me know when.
Sounds like somebody needs help getting out of tickets.

Good input though. I can see a wide array of opinions and really wanted to get a feel of what you all thought since. I just hear it from both ends of the spectrum from senior riders. Thanks for the feedback.
Whenever that day maybe, better geared up and be prepared.

All the more reason to gear up. It is however, very very relaxing to get out of the shower on a humid Houston day with shorts and ride around the hood. Then again it wouldn't feel so good going down. Wearing gear can never be overemphasized I think, and hearing people say you will only does you good. Thanks for the input.

I've been told from very knowledgeable (at least I see them that way with their experience and years) that I'm "going to wreck my first bike" or did you "lay it down yet". And then I've been told that it "happens to everyone". Is this inevitable or what? I'm trying to ride with a clear conscience but this thought lingers in the back of my mind and I feel at times that it's eminent. So what's the deal? Is it healthy to anticipate bustin your a$$ cause this trips me out the more I dwell on this...
you dont have to lay it down,,, just know that it can happen anytime and be careful.. i dropped imine in a parking lot spot when it was wet after 3 months on my first bike... then had my first accident/lowside after 2 years.
