G'day netriders, Since I got my learners and just bought a bike, my family and friends have been warning me of the dangers of riding a bike. In addition, some mates or mates of mates have told me horror stories of people they know who have had accidents while riding. And that's with my wife listening in on the same conversation... !! She doesn't want to hear those stories. Really bugs me. What do you say to people who bring you down like that? I mean since they are mates or family they do care for us but it doesn't help the situation. I'm sure you know what I mean. What do you say to them? Norm.
