My wife is just getting into bikes, she is the shadow 200 rider elsewhere in the forums. She is always saying everyone she tells that she rides a motorcycle has a bad comment to say. Its always that they are unsafe and kill people and they knew someone that died, but they are never people that have ever ridden before that say it. With proper training and lots of practice,i Know i have a feeling of saftey on a bike because i am so aware of my sorroundings. Have other people had this experience with non riders?
