so... what do you do when you tell your friends that you want to get a motorbike, and they all start whining about how dangerous it is? i mean, sure, it's nice that they're concerned about my safety and all that jazz, but how sensible are they being? seems to me that they're just going on what they've heard, all the urban legends about motorcycle accidents and what not. yes, it's dangerous, but is the danger enough of a reason to avoid the pursuit all together? i just can't get those silly bastards to understand! did you have any good convincing arguments with which to defend your choice?
