    Totally. I would love to ride again, even if it was only occasionally by renting a big bike for a few days, but we all see how these fucking imbeciles behave on the roads and you just know you'd be maimed or dead in no time at all

    I recall watching an interview once with Mick Doohan (5 time Moto GP world champion for those who live under rocks) and they asked him what sort of bike he rode at home, which was Monaco at that time. He replied something along the lines of "Oh I don't ride on roads very much, on the track we're all pros but who knows how much skill or experience other road users have that surround you in public". And he was talking about Monaco, not fucking Thailand!.

    This.

    I always found it was mostly bellends on their Honda Dreams and whatnot that were the issue.

    Car drivers for the most part stayed clear but those fuckwits would pull right out in front of you probably assuming you could stop or maneuver as quickly as them.

    Car drivers don't have eyes, just last week I was riding to work and this lady who was on the extreme right hand side of the road all of a sudden found it necessary to check her smartphone notification. She literally changed the lanes diagonally and came right in front of me. Thank God I was not so fast at that moment, or the crash wasn't inevitable.
