Everyone that I talk to, when they find out that I ride, the immediate question is have you crashed yet? Or how many times have you kissed the pavement. Or I'm too old I cant take the pain of sliding down the highway anymore. Or if you haven't crashed yet...you will!!! I have not crashed or laid my bike down, but I do realize that an accident can happen all to quickly. I'm kind of frustrated that the mind set of all is you must crash at least once but more than likely multiple times if you continue to ride. I'm somewhat of a rookie and have only logged up about 15,000 total riding miles. Please tell your story about crashes or safe miles you have rode.
