Like most riders I get sick of people telling me why I shouldn’t do it so I decided to create a set of responses to the most common comments. Feel free to use them yourself:

Q: Do you realise you’re thirty times more likely to die on a motorcycle than in a car?
A: Yes

Q: You might do everything right but it’s the other guy that’s the problem
A: Yes

Q: Motorists just don’t see you
A: Yes

Q: Dying’s not the problem, it’s ending up disabled
A: Yes

Q: Unlike a car, you don’t get a second chance on a bike
A: Yes

Q: Do you ever think of the impact it will have on your family if you’re in a crash?
A: Yes

Q: And you just keep doing it?
A: Yes

Q: Isn’t that a bit selfish?
A: Yes

Q: You realise you’re just using your motorcycle as an escape, don’t you?
A: Yes

Q: And that most motorcyclists have “issues”?
A: Yes

Q: Is there anything at all anyone can say that will persuade you to give it away?
A: Yes

Q: What is it?
A: Motorcycles are going to be limited to trikes

Q: Do you think you might be just a bit nuts?
A: Yes

I disagree with "Most motorcyclists have issues". I think most of us have FEWER issues because we ARE motorcyclists. Note my signature line.

Latest one….

Dude: I once saw a truck shred a tyre and bits flew everywhere….that was enough to put me off riding

Me: I once saw a tree shed a limb…. that was enough to put me off hiking

One of my favorite movie quotes, that never got its due, is when Clint Eastwood is first getting to know Sondra Locke's character in Sudden Impact, and they're at the bar:

Clint: "It's not safe to be alone after dark."

Sondra: "Life's full of risks, isn't it?"

That's what I say to everyone who's afraid of (fill in the blank).
