ok so a few hours ago I was sitting at work pissin and moaning about the weather outside. Was nice and sunny when I left home today at 1300 but when its time to leave at 2100 it starts to rain. No biggie happy to ride in the rain but would still like to poke murphy in the nose for his troubles. Anyway when someone kindly mentions that its pourin out and that Im gonna get all wet on the bike a near by worker asks me if I mean motor bike. Of course I answer yes. At this point she starts to share the tale of her BF's friend who had an accident on one and pretty much had the skin ripped off his leg like a glove. That and other nasty details. I got to thinking that when ever someone finds out I ride they always have some shitty accident story that they feel the need to share. Im not easily bothered by this stuff and its more of an interest to me than anything else. Im aware of the risks but don't really need to here about every god awfull event that involves a rider being dismembered. Just a little consideration would be nice is all. Why is it so ??
