life begins at 100

My head tells me that I've also got two young children and when I run the risk/reward equation getting back on a sport bike does not add up. If anything, I want to be driving around in a Volvo wagon.

My heart tells me that life begins at 100.

How to compromise?

How I compromised

A road racing bicycle is much safer due to lower speed and not being in the middle of the traffic stream. A decent one with 90% of the performance of the super expensive ones can be had for well under $1k.

The PERCEPTION of speed is higher than on a motorcycle. I like the feeling of being the crankshaft. The engine is silent and free of annoying vibration. The outfit is much more comfortable and the helmet only weighs a few ounces.

Instead of tearing you down, riding a bicycle can build you up. On a motorcycle, the wind noise alone can destroy your hearing. It seems to resonate and intensify inside a full face helmet. Those things are SO heavy....

You even countersteer a bicycle (push handlebar opposite curve direction to control lean) to adjust the line on high speed curves. Anything over 25 miles per hour on a bicycle starts to seem very fast. It's not that hard to get over 40 down hill, and fast descending can be very challenging.

For me motorcycling never lived up to the expectations. I had an ancient BMW boxer and a Honda 160 twin powered by an engine that sounded just like a chainsaw.

Zondor you reminded me why I now commute on my bicycle. Another bonus is the fact its easier to exersize if you can build it into your commute

For me, this is all a matter of form factor, and specs.

Anything on two wheels I love. Sport bike, trials bike, Super Cub, mountain bike, road racer. Razor.

Heck, probably the most joyous two-wheeling for me is to blast down the hill in front of our house riding tandem with my seven year old on the Razor kick scooter.

motorcycles are a blast

I'll just share my own personal experience.. I had a Honda 600 F4i which is a crotch rocket/sportbike type of a motorcycle and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had. There is a rush to it, its a release, its freedom, its meditation, it requires concentration, effort, awareness of your surroundings and potential dangers. The cruiser/touring type of bikes are very fun to ride too. I think its just something you'd have to do to understand the feelings it brings. You take riding safety courses, wear proper gear every time you ride, ride only when calm (not angry), etc, do everything you can in that is in your control to make it safer for you to ride and you have to be disciplined at doing that every single time you go riding because you never know when something will happen. There are ways to reduce your risk but there is no guarantee of safety, just like anything else. The other drivers which are not under your control and can definitely cause you serious harm which means always being alert and aware. Some of this sounds similar to trading

you know when you factor risk to reward, your skill level does play a huge part along with common sense... but I do understand your direction children are always number one, but how many traders have lost everything,houses family etc from trading...food for thought

Happy riding and trading to all

All good stuff here. Anyone on two wheels is a brother or sister. Ride a 2006 Honda 599. Life truly begins at 10,000 RPM. As with anything, trading, lane-splitting, fatherhood, corner entry... (informed) attitude is everything. Here in SoCal bicyclists ride on the shoulder of some freeways! To me this is much more dangerous than lane-splitting. I am so used to no-minders on four wheels that anytime I throw a leg over I view anyone on four wheels as either doesn't see me, doesn't care, or is out to get me. This works for me and I still enjoy to the max. I don't have statistics however, even on regular roads riding a bicycle on the shoulder, and surviving a collision with a 2 tons of metal and momentum is not likely. I hear of more bicycle deaths than I do motorcycle deaths. On a motorcycle, if you are wearing proper protection survivability is not an impossible scenario. Whatever picks your pickle I suppose. I just can't imagine beating the feeling (and power to weight ratio) of 90 horses and 400 pounds, than not! Happy New Year!!
