Me too. I like both. But I choose not to smoke yet I ride. Who knows maybe i will quit riding one day too... But right now I think life is full of risks. The trick is to find a balance between the risk and pleasure. (financially speaking "risk vs. rate of return" ratio) In my mind cigs, although have returns, carry too much risk.

I don't believe comparing the two is fair. Sure there are risk of death in both the two, but they are on different levels.
