“The future’s uncertain and the end is always near”, some great writing by Jim Morrison.
I missed hitting a deer running across the road by inches one time while on my motorcycle, and my wife hit a deer with her car and did thousands of dollars of damage to the front of the car, and the deer died.
Every time we drive or ride we risk our lives. I minimize the riding risks by limiting my riding to 2,500 miles a year, mostly on roads I know very well during the day when it is dry. I have a will and life insurance, just in case. Riding is dangerous, which makes it more exciting. Another reason to start on a less expensive bike- you may decide the risk is too much for you and decide to sell it and give up riding.
