How cognitive are we? Without pills and coffee, do we have to think where and what is what on the bike. Time to park it.
Personally you have to be 100% each time out. I just ride slower, stay out of everyone's way. When no one is around with the funny lights, cough, you only live once, so everyday is a few seconds of yeehaw, wipe my rear end when I get home, yep, still can scare the .... out of me doing it.

Cash waiting for the next 'worlds fastest production bike.' Knock on a black box, but once a car changes lanes and I see it out the corner of my eye, I don't have to shift down. Bye the time it's beginning to happen, the car is a dot in the mirror. E-Bike is the way to go. I'll take Mag over compression. More like WATT car?

Remember that arm drop guy TV show? Hundreds of cars show up, down to the top 16 qualifiers. Usually they were old farts winning the show. That's a lot of concentration if you ever dragged race, and all that happens in just a few minutes of staging to the end crossing the lights. Some guy at another site is in his 80's and is still drag racing bikes.
You're all a bunch of youngies.

Smoker admits he's green on bikes. Well, Smoker let's put it this way, you might as well be in a fighter jet once you enter the motorcycle scene. Lots of hand/eye, lots of coordination, and 100% concentration, this is combat fighting in the air, call it a street. Your only wingman is the cranium talking to you or you talking to it. Choose income stream.

The hypnosis on the road is for sure dangerous. Twice I have nodded out on the bike, both times it woke me up. It was that push to get home. Not smart. But those were extreme kind of events if I recall. But to just jump on a bike and dream this or that went by is more safe in a car if something happens. The bike riding is more a T-type person with a touch of those traits.

I mean, we a talking about a sport. This is the ball [bearing] on two wheels. You sort of have to know this going in. A game, you get hit, you'll most likely get up. In a sport, you get hit, it's lights out, you don't get up kind of sport. Die in a boxing ring? Yep. Die in any wheel, prop, blade machines? Every year. Mountain climbing seem like a game or a sport? Right chew are tumbling off those body shredding rocks.

So it's full steam ahead are you about to find a fender with your name on it. Get my drift... (heading for that wall if I recall)

I ride like a ball in pinball machine. I am dodging one car running a light, a car pulls out in front of me, a car moves in my lane, a car turns left in front of me, the car drifts out of his lane and into mine, head on as she goes. I must admit, I love and live for the action. A big NOTE... On the right bike that is.

I wouldn't count on all those years of driving experience, the safety record, the bad habits [if any-if applies], it's more a wakeup call, not to be so kocky as to here, hold my beer, watch this wheelie thru the intersection 500 miles in me pocket already.
