I'm back on my bike after 7 years of not riding, and I love it. I just can't wait when the weather is nice and go riding.
I guess my question is, when you hear about a rider down (like the rider from last weekend - RIP), what does that make you feel like? I guess what I'm getting at is do you feel like you want to quit because you're afraid you "may be next"? Or do you go on and just keep riding?
I know it's a weird/tough question to ask/answer. I was so hyped up to get on the bike again, but keep in mind, I don't go "nuts", I take it easy on rides, etc. Although I know it doesn't take much do go down, or for something to happen quickly, even if you're stopped at a red light and some douche bag smokes you from behind (as read in previous thread) and it's not your fault... I just really never thought of all of that before buying the bike, until I came back onto BCSB and started reading about recent and past accidents...
