I always maintain that you can't make motorcycling safe, but you can make it wafer by keeping your wits about you and wearing good safety riding apparel. There are too many other idiots out there on the streets and roads, and while we can be sure of ourselves, we can't ever be sure about anyone else. My riding mantra is, "ride with the notion that everyone else out there is about to do something incredibly stupid, and it will involve me." So far, it seems to be a good concept to ride by. But as long as we can't be 100% sure that nothing unfortunately will happen, we can't relax, tempting though it maybe. Even 99% isn't enough as there's no way to account for the marauding 1%. Be safe, brothers and sisters.
