When I was young, living in San Antonio I bought a huge-for-the-time motorcycle, and agree: automobile drivers made no allowances for me. In fact, a grizzled old biker I encountered in the Honda dealership told me, "Son, buy the biggest machine you can handle. Car divers will worry that if they hit you, you'd damage their precious baby."Most street riders I know stopped in urban setting because everyone looking at one screen or another.
Anyone ever driven in any of the big California cities? The "interlaneing" allowed there is insane, and I cannot imagine doing that myself. It puts automobile drivers constantly on edge, as you never know when you're going to look out your window and see a motorcycle a few inches from you.Hello; I wonder how many years it takes to ride a million miles on a motorcycle. Not sure i have driven a million miles in all my vehicles total. I have been driving since 1963. Might have if I throw in the miles of driving a school bus for 13 years. I probably have less than 10,000 on a motorcycle.
Never occurred to me to endanger others when riding a cycle. I understood from the start I would lose out in a mixup with a car or truck. The extra danger when riding a bike is part of the deal and should be taken into account before throwing a leg over.
