the arguments have all been secured..
there is, a significant risk to riders
from cars and car drivers..
there are, risks in riding a motorcycle,
even when there are no cars about..
my single off - with no car involved -
was hitting road kill on a blind low traffic
mountain roads reducing radius corner [ridden
daily to work].. what odds a cat or wallaby
being flattened at that exact point...
motorcycle cornering leaning over
was the other risk component..
so we do have additional risk factors..
on the other hand i avoided a head on
with a semi thru an S bend which he
could do nothing to avoid, yet my motorcycle
could [just] fit bye scraping the armco..
so we have advantages in size and escape routes..
anyway, both sides of the riding risk coin
are real.. differences being in degrees
and specifics.. both realities remain..
