At 19 I bought my own 1st bike, brand new, paid the insurance, etc., (a Honda 500-4) and it quickly went to my head. 3,000 miles later I'm in the hospital, had to sell the bike, and, well, nobody told me that people often don't see motorcyclists.
Now I assume I'm invisible and haven't been down in years. I rarely even bother to give someone the finger if they pull out in front of me...I just laugh...stupid driver with his head up his --- or his phone in his --- (you fill in the blanks)
(But I do really hate seeing a wrecked Thruxton)
