Now I want all young and old people (who reads LTWWL/B )who are learning or just got their license to ride motorcycles to take HEED to what I'm writing.
Motorcycles always have been very unforgiving machines, you input what you ask of it, it will do just that. Many times I've seen people not understanding the power they have beneath them, you pass that limit or your experience limit, I can guarantee hurt and sometimes death will visit you quickly. I have been driving for years and to this day there are instances where I've come close to an incident.
All too often I've seen drivers zoom past me like they're in the Indy 500, SLOW THE HELL DOWN, a rock, a twig, dog, cat, you name it, it will get you when you least expect it.
Your new licence doesn't come with experience and common sense, that I'm afraid is a learning curve.
Please, motorcycles are fun to ride and experience, don't try to impress your new love or family member by being an idiot showing off, you only scare the hell out of them to never want to step foot on one again. How would you feel if they got hurt as a result of your stupidity? Could you live with your conscience ? I know I couldn't.
Think carefully next time you ride, the life you save may very well be your own. Happy Motoring. —Klyde
