I know you guys ride and just wanted see if you have gone through this and/or what to say to these people. I'am hooked and i love riding, still a little slower than the rest but i like to cruise.

any thoughts?

Thanks Guys

Why are you so concerned with what others think !?? If you enjoy it then do it....if your concerned with what others think then don't.....people that don't ride will never understand why you want to ride...... nuff said...

Of course youre more in harms way now that youre riding alongside vehicles without a metal shield and air bags cushioning you. Dont think of it too much; youll let Their fear control your life. Ride safely, anticipate drivers actions, be loud, be bright, be seen. Let cars around you know youre there--your life and limbs are at stake.

When I hear it and my gosh I hear it all the time, I agree with them that its dangerous and risky and Im probably shortening my lifespan but thats the choice Im going with. People choose to dive off mountains w/ no parachutes gliding in the air, swim and catch sting rays, wrestle alligators, and whatever else.

ACCEPTANCE of its risks and severity will give you a sound mind.

I think one of the most important things about riding a bike is being very aware that you could die or get seriously hurt and accepting that truth. It teaches you to have a tremendous amount of respect for the machine underneath you and makes you a safer rider. To ride and think that you aren't at risk is the mistake that leads to carelessness.

BTW wear your jacket even when its hot. That's just part of the deal, you sacrifice convenience and comfort for pleasure when you ride safely.
