I have rethought my ownership of a motorcycle after seeing that collison. I don't know how much more riding I will be doing. I think it is time to keep it on the track. I'll be hitting the NESBA and WERA sites tonight and tomorrow. Ride Safe???...It doesn't matter, if you get hit by another car, you are dead or paralyzed. Riding safe will not do one thing. I'm out.
WSE do what your heart and your head tell you to or you'll never be happy. If your hit by a car and survive your LUCKY plain and simple, I've been hit twice
1st time: Had my front wheel taken out from under me as I watched my buddys disappear behind me, 8 months rehab, 19 surgeries, 2 pins,6 bone plates permanent nerve damage to my taste and smell, had to learn to walk again, fused vertebrea...
2nd time: rear ended at a light, whiplash, broken vertebrea, dislocated shoulder, broke both collar bones...
I myself couldn't wait to get back on a bike, but thats a decision only you can make for yourself.
It's a dangerous hobby, and as such the first time YOU dont want to do it... DONT do it.
