The last thing my driving instructor told me when he dropped me home after my (car) licence test several decades ago went something along the lines of:

"If you cannot see that it is definitely clear to go, DO NOT GO".

You are not looking to "see if any cars are coming", as we've all heard mothers say to their young children.

You are looking to "make sure that NOTHING is coming".

Also, I have had a single nasty burn to my right arm from every bike I have ever owned except my new Super Sherpa.

I paid someone else to change the oil on the Sherpa - all the others I leant on the exhaust pipe at some time or another when removing the drain plug or filter. None of them ever got me twice.
