A little list of the lectures I get on a daily basis - add yours. "You're going to kill yourself" How? I follow the road rules.. I don't speed. Tell me how I'm going to kill myself, I'd be interested to know, fortune teller. "Cars can't see you" Why not? Unless I'm in their blind spot they will see me. I've never understood this one. "Motorcycles are dangerous, you don't have the protection you'd have in a car" Close to 100 drivers have died this year on Australian roads, compared to 30 motorcyclists. Yes - there are 10 times more drivers than riders, but at the same time, if the numbers were equal, people would be far more aware of riders. You're right in a way, but so wrong in many others. "My mate crashed his motorcycle, won't see me on one" My mate crashed his car, won't see me boycotting them.
