Ok, so I'm not a bad ass rebel rider like you but give us a fair go... lol I've ridden a motorbike about 3 times, I'm planning to get a learners licence by Feb next yr since I will need to ride 25km to get to school. Except I'm really friggen scared by all the whole talk like "Doctors call bike riders organ donars" and "You are 20x more likely to have an accident in a bike" It doesn't do the confidence any good. I'd just like to know for sure how risky it is. I'm not the kind of guy that is in to going as fast as possible, I think I'm pretty cautious. I only plan to go 50-60 kmph. The things that worries me are the factors which are out of my control such as hitting a rock on a gravel road and flying into a tree or having a car tailgate me, that would be really frightening on a bike. I'm not asking you to lie and tell me what I want to hear, I'd just like to know the truth from experienced riders.
