And a 2013 Belgian road safety report says the more motorbikes on the road, the safer our roads would be.
We agree that riders are the safest road users. We have to be. The consequences of not paying full attention, riding sober and being properly trained are dire.
We’ve seen how distracted drivers endanger us so we wouldn’t do the same to other motorists. We want to keep our fellow motorcyclists safe. We ride to enjoy ourselves, not to get from A to B, so we are concentrating on riding, not on distractions to pass the time.
Ok, some of us may speed occasionally, but we seem to do it when we assess the risks are low. We prefer to concentrate on the road and the conditions, rather than our speedos and some officially nominated speed limit.
