Quitting (Motorcycles)?

I have been riding since the age of 16; Mostly one version or another of a BMW GS. I, like most riders I know, am safe, conscientious, and prudent. I am also a daily rider 14,000 miles a year or so in the Pacific Northwest area. One of my close friends and fellow rider was just killed, while riding, by a driver who ran a red light. He was also safe, cautious, and in town 5 blocks from home. The news link is pasted below.

Have any of you ever seriously thought of giving up riding or actually done so? I would like to hear from some others who have gone through this. Thanks in advance.
