the point of the thread is that respecting your bike wont do jack shit. i can go out, kick my bike right in the tank, never wash it, rev it up at the rev limiter at every light and that still lwont be what causes or prevents a wreck. . . when i wreck my bike it will be for 1 of 2 possible reasons.
1. i am not experienced enough and chose to ride faster or harder in the conditions than i should have
2. a car will come out of nowhere and cream me
you get the point. you can reduce 50% of your risk of riding by not following "friends" around on your bike and not trying to be a badass and pop wheelies for the bitches. its not worth it because aint nobody gonna sleep with you with a big road scab on your ugly mug. . .
im just rambling and i dont mean anything by it. just my 2 cents
