We like to be precise, not that broad

Woah sorry to hear about the accident 99nasha..

That is the #1 reaso0n why i will never own a motorcycle is because i don't trust them.

Don't get me wrong, i think they are fun to ride, but just don't trust them enough to own one.

Also i would never feel safe riding one on the highway's out here, the way people drive it would make me feel intense.

1 oz. of weight at 60 mph = 200 pounds.

I used to have a little suzzuki RM 125, and we used to razz that, (and anything else we could find, including old scooters and mopeds) around a little dirt track not far from where I lived on a disused railway embankment)

I don't really think that's a fair comment...

A bike is as safe as the rider, and the people around them, the same applies with a car...

Nine times out of ten when a car driver hits a bike rider (for example) it's because the driver cannot see the rider whilst they weave in and out of traffic, very close to cars, riding in the drivers mirror blind spots.

as for going that little bit faster, the same thing can be said of cars.

for me I'm really considering getting a little road bike simply because it took me an hour and twenty minutes to drive 20 miles to work this morning. if I had a bike then I'd be able to get here a damn site quicker...

But I really need to keep my car, (for doing the grocery shopping at weekends). and the missus doesn't like the sound of me getting a bike, because she is also under the impression that they are dangerous.

If you hit a car head on in another car you'll survive...This happens on a bike you die. Im just saying that if your involved in any accident at all you have a huge chance of death or injury
