Yes, I have seriously considered giving up riding due to tragedies of several people I have known. One in particular
I actually sold the bike I had at the time and quit for a while, but the desire to ride never went away. I talked it over with my wife and ended up getting another bike.
I don't know what to say. It seems smart to quit, but I chose not to.
How come I could walk away from skydiving with no regrets and not motorcycling?
