Riding a bike is as dangerous as fighting a war
A new book on risk (cannot remember the name of the top of my head)by well respected risk analysts pointed out that statistically spending a day riding a motorcycle (400 miles)is a little more dangerous then spending a day fighting in Afghanistan.
Obviously we all have different risk profiles but that was quote sobering to me at least having 2 small kids.
I ride daily but would still describe my skills as only average. I have had my share of close calls but I thought it was just my personal experience.
I won't stop riding but it is a scary idea for sure.
