More dangerous for me were motorcycles. People on bikes always worry about other drivers (and rightly so). However, every bike wreck I was ever in back then was a "single vehicle accident" and related to some sort of fooling around.
I got my motorcycle license at 16. Nowadays, I know that's too young, especially since I have children who are just like me. I fully understand the saying "there are two types of riders, those who have been down, and those who are going down". Personally, I’ve never been down on a street bike. A dirt bike, oh yeah I’ve been down, but never on the street. Of all the guys I've known to be hurt on a street bike, there's really no specific rhyme or reason to them all. A few have been hit by cars, a few have had an accident because of their own actions, and a few have had freak accidents beyond anyone's control. I love riding, but often the odds seem to be stacked against you. You really need some angels to help guide you.
