Does this happen to any of you? While I'm riding I am totally confident and I really enjoy myself. But when I'm not riding I worry about getting hurt. Every morning I hear of at least one motorcycle accident on the radio. Let me say that this bike is my 10th. I am a very competent driver and always on the lookout for the idiots on the road. I've had about a thousand traffic tickets, but no accidents. I don't commute or drive in rush hour traffic, I avoid the freeways and usually ride on the weekends and never consume alcohol while riding. Its just that if something did happen, you are not protected.
