I realize driving a motorcycle is much more dangerous than driving (or riding in) a car. No problem there.
Cliff and I try to cut our risks by staying off freeways, out of city traffic when possible, and avoiding night driving. Still, we know we're at the mercy of stupid (or drunk) drivers.
What gets me is this: People tell about their friends or relatives having an awful motorcycle wreck, and say they'd never ride one. And advise others, "Don't get a motorcycle".
Yet, when they have a friend or relative who gets involved in an automobile accident, you never hear them advise folks to stay out of cars.
Somebody help me with this. Would you call this a double standard?
