yes you are right riding a sportbike around here is dangerous, if u don;t know what you are doing, when u were hear did u notice the massive numbers of smaller 100cc bikes and scooters around? their more 2 wheelers on the road than cars, and about the driving lane thing, its not like that everything is exactly as it is in florida (i lived their 3 years) u can make a right at red lights and you stay on the right side of the road and yellow means 2 laned road and such, the problem is that most people don;t have patience and sometimes interpret a red light with a stop sign so they just slow down or honk their horns when at a small intersection instead of making a complete stop,
i thought about maybe just bring my mr2 down here and not my bike but i intened to live down here so their is no way im giving up my sport of riding bikes just because is a dangerous riding it down here, hell its dangerous riding it everywhere.
but i have seen a large numbers of sportbikes here so i know its possible i just have to be extra defensenve, to be honest with youy the most dangerous part of riding a sportbike down here is the it can be stolen factor....while your in it, im not too worried about traffic i have plenty of seat time under my belt
