    Riding motorcycles on public roads is way too dangerous

    In summer 2018 I decided I was going to get a bike as soon as I was ready, mostly because girls love guys on bikes. My first choice was a ninja 250 second choice cbr 250 I was ok with 125 depending on what was available. I got most of my gear, but after spending some time on instagram bike pages it became easier to decide to ride on track only. Too many stories I feel sick after reading.

    My 2 cents

    I would have agreed when I lived in the city but not anymore. I live in the sticks now and a lot of people ride here so the drivers look out for you and you're not invisible. Way better feeling than dodging traffic all the time.

    I've always thought about getting a motorcycle but all the stories about accidents really makes me reconsider. I live in California and people here can't drive, they drive reckless, they don't pay attention, etc. I've already been in 2 car accidents because the other driver on both occasions wasn't paying attention. Had I been on a motorcycle I would have been really injured badly.

    Firstly, girls don't care about motorcycles. They're not attracted to them in any regards. If you can't get girls by yourself, a motorcycle definitely isn't gonna help

    Second, it's good you decided to not ride. It's not for wimps like you.

    Third, you sound like a poser. I hate posers and many motorcyclist also hate them.

    Yep, can concur, they don't care about bikes. They care about guys who ride them though.

    Outside of general curiosity among acquaintances, the only female attention I've gotten for riding my motorcycle is from women who ride motorcycles. All admiration, thumbs up, comments etc has come from dudes.

    I started riding March of this year and have put on 10k miles since, a whole lot of those spent in and around Boston - not exactly known for having the best drivers. The only time I dropped the bike was going like 5mph in a muddy off road trail section a couple weeks ago. I've follow the road rules, ride smart, and have never felt in any real danger. I have seen a whole lot of people do stupid dangerous and/or illegal stuff. Tons of people want bikes to be idiots on, and go figure idiot stuff happens to them. Obviously anecdotal, but if you treat it like a vehicle, not like a toy as so many do, I feel the chances of anything bad happening are a fraction of what the statistics suggest.

    Imagine risking your life for women who care that you ride a motorcycle.


    As someone who works in the OR and sees motorcycle deaths, and worse (You wish you were fuking dead....), on a daily basis I’m going to advise you to stay off of public roads...

    The people who think they are superhuman and invincible make me laugh. You have NO FUKING IDEA what I’ve seen. They all felt the exact same way. Life is not a video game. These are REAL RISKS. That soccer mom on her phone with 3 kids in her car? That’s half the drivers on the road.

    You are fuking soft meat son against 2,000 lb vehicles. You can’t even lift 20 lb dumbells with your shoulder muscles. Drag your knuckle on concrete for 1 foot and see what happens.

    Respect yourself.

    you gonna ride that 250 on the track only? Yes it's more dangerous than cars but
    1)wear a helmet and protective gear
    2) Absolutely no booze
    3) No speeding

    This will cut your chances of an accident by like 90%

    You're getting a bike for the wrong reasons.

    This isn't a game, like others have said above, a lapse of judgement or not constantly scanning your surroundings and you're done.

    Just get a husky like the other ***gots who need it to get girls.

Then sometimes, just sometimes the crow could bring that soul back to put the wrong things right."

    worst possible thing you could do is ride in areas with alot of illegal immigrants.

    not only are they horrible drivers they are also uninsured. cant get any worse.
