why even answer them? let the cliche-spewing crowd keep reeee-ing away

Re: Dying

Get good training. Wear good gear. You will always find people who will tell you horror stories. You can die stepping out of the shower. You can die choking on your food. You can live hiding under your bed, but why would you live like that? If you want to make a point, make up some horrific car crash story. Really gruesome. That's what I do.

I wouldnt listen to it.....i heard that many times from other ppl when i was your age....its your life and you love riding bikes and you are the one who made that decision....to me is important to be present, aware that you are riding, your surroundings..wear decent gear, helmet , respect your machine because you are the one whose riding it and it listen to your orders....

Re: Dying

It usually comes from a good place. I prefer to be politely dismissive about it -- yeah it's dangerous, definitely not for everyone -- nod, smile, and get the hell on with our lives.

You're not going to suddenly convince anyone who's been regurgitating whatever it was that got in their head N years ago about motorcycling anyhow.

Re: Dying

those are the people you need to look out for the most when you are riding... the ones that want to potentially hurt you for riding a motorcycle!

sure bikes are dangerous
take precautions
be smart about it
and hopefully you will have some fun!

Sorry if this is a morbid topic, but I have heard these statements countless times and was wondering if anyone else has people saying these bold things. If you have, how did you handle the conversation? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum section I am new.

You've had some great replies.

If you choose to Ride a Motorcycle arm yourself with as much help/Practice as you can and don't,"Throttle and Brake".Smooth is the way and Anticipation is better than Reaction.

Once or twice a month I still practice,"Threshold Braking/Emergency stops" on either a large empty car-park or a Straight Traffic and side road/Vehicle free road.
Check out this video,
