Topic Tuesday: Motorcycles

It’s Tuesday and I have a question for all of you.  Please remember to be respectful in your responses.

Motorcycles.  I know there are many of you out there that love to ride.  My question is, why?  I have ridden before and sure it was fun.  Here’s the thing though, the death issue.  I see so many people out riding and I wonder how they reconcile the chance of dying being so much greater. I hear a lot of stuff about how it’s the driver of other vehicles that cause the accidents that kill motorcycle riders and, though I have seen way more accidents where the only one involved is the motorcycle, I am wondering why someone would take such a large risk regardless of who would be considered “at fault.”  I am not picking on or accusing anyone…just curious what your thoughts are.

Just an FYI, I also don’t really understand jumping our of a perfectly good plane.  🙂
