I think this discussion calls for a prayer at this time. So please pause for a moment of silence and the reading of the prayer.

grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.


PS. it is amazing that if this website was an office building that everyone came to work at and this was said, what would be your reaction? I watch CNN and have seen it reported. Oh, Bobby said a few months prior that he thought about........... and everyone just thought he needed hugs and time to himself.
Then RayRay said, Yeah right....time to himself to plan the Halloween massacre. I'll be working from the house, boss.


Anyway, who is up for a group ride, to help the guy out.

At least that's the idea, I am a delicate flower so it doesn't always work for me.

Also bear in mind it's an age thing, I went through it at about 32, lasted a year or so. This is good news, means we're only about a dozen years from our mid-life porsche and mistress phase!
Wheres a rugby club around here, in college i played for a bit, but college was the only place ive ever seen it played. Also ive kinda noticed its an age thing seen alot of older guys go through mid life crisis but im only 24 lol. Also i want a fiddy bad but since i just bought a house it may be a while till I get one unless I find a helluva deal.

Yeah chief I hope your not serious with what you think. I think you may need to spend alittle more time in your psych classes and talke to the proff more instead of concentrating on the book. I mean if you serious think anyone who puts them self in harms way, every smoker, drinker, police and firefighter, motorcycle rider, pretty much anyone who is alive at the moment should be in the looney bin according to you.

You should read my statement again, as I didn't say that. I did not say putting yourself in harms way, I said, "The human body is wired with a safety switch to prevent harming your own self." Those are two different meanings. ie. If you put your hand on an open flame, your brain automatically makes you pull it back, so as not to "harm" the body. If you can somehow put your hand on an open flame and keep it there to see if you can get it roasted to between medium and well done, then I'm saying the wiring to your brain is faulty. Stepping on nail , etc , etc. You don't continue talking to friend while standing bare feet on a sharp nail.
The examples you gave are not the same because some of those are occupations and you are "TRAINED" (not in 1 day) to overcome the brain's natural reaction and carry out a "mission" whatever it may be. The so called going into harms way is normally referred to specialized profession, either military or civilian. Smoking, drinking etc, not in same class.

Ok so everyone know smoking and drinking are harmfull to ones body and could ultimately kill them in severe cases, so the people that still choose to do these thing apparently have some kind wiring flaw according to what you think

To consider getting on motorcycle going into harm's way....please. I can't think of someone "that goes into harm's way" that doesn't get paid. Can you suggest 3??
Ummmmm, fighter pilot, front line soldier, nuclear plant worker, submariner, sewer diver, SWAT, miner, and I could go on and on. If you want to know the difference between the folks and everyone else on the planet. Their paycheck and contract for starters:
1. isn't under $25/hr
2. it says somewhere in it...HAZARD PAY. that's extra.

If your check doesn't say HAZ Pay, then you don't go into harm's way.

Keyword here is Volunteer meaning a person who performs a service willingly and without pay. So please give another suggestion.

This is a healthy discussion, where do you see that we are arguing?? I haven't cussed, so all is good.

I feel like that sometimes cause ofcourse the more u ride, the more u r at risk, and thats with anything but more the same with a machine built on two wheels. What I do is take random breaks , which builds up a want to ride when i feel like it and not so much the paranoia

riding should be a hobby, not a way of life like some make it. take a break, sell the bike, but dont sell your gear!!

riding has become much less enjoyable for me recently, b/c it's my only mode of transportation. rain/shine/cold/hot whatever. i started to notice that after a couple of weeks of back and forth to work i wouldn't touch the bike on the weekend.

just give it a week or 2 off, enough that you start looking forward to it again, and then get out there on a group ride.

I don't think your problem is depression, but anxiety, or the fear of the unknown, since in your case, you fear crashing because you haven't done it. I don't, by any means, suggest finding out. there are just to many uncontrollable variables in a crash to intensionally cause one and determine the out come accurately before hand. before i got my bike i came to terms with the fact that the possiblity of a spill will always be there, so i dress for the crash not the ride, and i know that its not a matter of if, but when.

I would advise to take a break and think about what riding means to you, weigh the pros and cons and decide if in YOUR opinion if your life would be better or more enjoyable with or without having two-wheels in your life, I think that you will find that you enjoy riding more than you know.

just my .02

oh and read my sig.

Not sure which part of town you're in but there are several men's rugby clubs in Houston.
www.bayarearugby.com/
www.houstonrugby.org/
www.woodlandsrugby.com/
etc., etc.

I played 2 years college, 2 years union, 1 year semi-pro (I made almost one hundred and sixty dollars!), and union off and on for about 12 years now.

Amen on the fiddy brother, and good response to the projectionist dimestore psychoanalysis.
