I rode 3 different ones in my youth. Then one day I realized motorcycles are INVISIBLE. Because motorists have a mindset that they are looking for cars and trucks. When the human mind focuses on ONE thing... it will not easily see other things. Many motorists crash into cycles and they say, "I didn't even SEE HIM !!" I personally was headed off the road 2 different times by old-timers... not because they hated cyclists... because they didn't SEE me. Then I was spit-on by an old man in a BIG truck. The spit landed on my hand. He didn't do it on purpose. he appologized at the next traffic light. I am sure he DIDNT SEE ME. so..... if you ride... just remember you are INVISIBLE !!!
