why is it

Recommended Posts

Since i got the Ducati i tend to get people coming up to me for a chat when i park up,which is fine,i dont bite BUT why do the non bike riding people always start off with "nice bike blah blah then at some point tell me that they would never get a bike because somebody they know got killed on one.sorry but i dont need reminding that this is a dangerous hobby, i'm fully aware that people get hurt and even lose their lives for the love of riding a bike and i'm sorry you lost a friend but i get fed up with people telling me.If i go up to someone who plays football i dont say i know somebody who had a heart attack while he was playing football so why tell me you know somebody who died riding a bike. confused

Get the same statements off people Bladerunner but I'd rather do something I love than stagnate for 50 years wishing i'd had a life. We all balance the enjoyment we get from motorcycling against the dangers involved and I for one won't be put off by someone who's never had the experience we get every time we ride, starting to rant now arn't I, sorry!
