Motorcycle. Safety. Let's try to avoid using those two words together in the same sentence.

Lessee...



1) Stay off of Alchoholic beverages while riding,



b) Complete some sort of Motorcycle skills course,



Lastly) Maintain your bike in proper working order.



End of conference! Bring on the babes, beast and brew!

Good grief, are there any adults posting here today! Safety should be a top concern when riding your bike, if you want to live to be old. And alcohol and riding, that's just stupid. You guys need to read David Hough's book, "Proficient Motorcycling", it just might save your life.

a) we proactively determine our own safety standards and do reviews like this or ...



b) the government does it for us.



Hmmmmmm.

I'm glad someone is thinking about this safety stuff. Now the rest of us can carry on with reckless abandon. As you were.

What if I don't want to live to be old? Do I have to read the book anyway? If safety was my 'top concern', then why would I ride a motorcycle in the first place? And if safety WAS my 'top concern', then I am assured to live a long and happy life? I really need to know the answers to these questions before I die.
