I despise and reject outright that ridiculous and often parroted donor cycle bullshit.
Is the cup half full or half empty?
I do not consider riding dangerous.
I do think it can be dangerous
for new and returning riders. That is why I do what I can to increase the road craft skills of every rider I sell bikes to. I ride with them, share knowledge with them buy copies of Proficient Motorcycling and give it to them.
I want every rider to arrive safely at their intended destination each and every ride. I do what I can to make that happen.
Like it or not... Good gear helps by providing comfort.
