Quick Survey

Everyone,

4 questions for those who are willing to share.

1. Years you've been riding.

2. Number of accidents you've had.

3. Worst injury you've received in a motorcycle crash.

4. Did the accident(s) mess with your head so much that you thought of giving up riding. And did you.

Let me know your thoughts - thanks.

Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end; there it is.

8 months, two minor accedents, fractured shoulder blade. The first accedent, the more minor of the two, made me think about it. It was my 4th day riding and it scared the crap outta me. But I got back on and haven't looked back.

Four years. No accidents. Several close calls. All make me wonder if this sport is for me, but I cant give it up.

Dirtbikes since I was three, but streetbikes for 4 years. No accidents, no injuries, and would never give up on riding!

1) 1/2 Year - 4000 Miles
2) Dropped the bike once practicing figure 8s, crashed the bike once
3)Bruised cartilidge in the center of my chest, forgot what my doctor called it.
4)I considered stopping riding after my accident, however now I feel pretty confident that I am in total control of my bike, because I know what mistake I made, and I know I will not make it again. I am more afraid of being mauled by an SUV. A lot when I am not riding I am thinking wow, this is a pretty dangerous machine, however once I am in the saddle, all my troubles melt away, and I am 100% focused .

Bah! That's just your n00b side speaking out! When you're older, you'll realise that this was a dumb and dangerous hobby, and you'd have been better off staying inside the house all your life, playing solitaire on the computer!

1 small accident

didnt make me consider giving up riding, but it did make me be more cautious for a while.
