I owned and worked around horses for a good number of years when I was younger and I'd have to say the horses are a tad more dangerous than motorcycles. At least when I walk past my bike in the garage I know it's not going to try to bite or kick me and if a kid on a big wheel comes near the bike while I'm riding I know it won't throw a hissy and bolt in the other direction. I've had more close calls in the stables than I've had on the road, I think I'll stick with the iron horses.

Re: Motorcycle Mania

I have a Goldwing and I like to take road trips of 2000 to 6000 miles. I've ridden about 250,000 miles and was in my first accident last fall... an SUV didn't see me and pulled out in front of me. If I wouldn't have gotten on the brakes hard... I'm sure I would have been hit in the side. The Goldwing was totaled so I have gotten another one. I had some road rash and 3 fractured ribs... I was wearing helmet, gloves, leather jacket. Maybe if I had a jacket with armor my ribs would have not been injured!

I rode by myself last month from WI to Key West putting on 4600 miles and riding in 16 different States. My DW and I are leaving later this week for a ride to Page, AZ and then to Death Valley.

I just love to ride... but I very seldom ride just locally... I walk a lot.

Well, now I understand why you choose the screen name you did.

Re: Motorcycle Mania

My Mom is 85 but on her 80th birthday my uncle took her for a ride on his 51 Harley. Quite a gal.


Happy Mothers Day to all the biker chicks out there
