don't let this thread stop you from having fun or cause you to fear becoming an amputee everytime you swing your leg over the bike.Damn, after reading this, I'm definitely going to be a lot more careful when I ride from now on. I'm a pretty careful rider (in my opinion at least, I've taken a safety course and all that.) but still, you can never be too careful when it comes to stuff like this.
Riding is an inherently dangerous activity and by signing on, you accept the risk that your ticket could be called up.
I wear shit tons of gear even just riding 1 mile down the road (leather pants, jacket, boots, gloves, helmet, spine protector) but I don't for one second delude myself into believing that this couldn't happen to me (knock on wood) or that I might not die (knock on wood, again) while the squid wearing nothing but a helmet lives a long life.
It's all about increasing your odds of survival, that's all you can do.
