    When I think riding is too dangerous. I remind myself of all the people I've known or heard about dying from some other random ass event or illness. I don't want to die but shit not gonna let the inevitable stop me from having some fun.

    Yup. Got it right man. I passed my bike test 6 weeks ago. I must have had advice from at least 20 people in that time. So obviously I'm giving up the licence that cost me £800 And selling the bike I bought that I always wanted
    Because advice from non bikers is ALWAYS right 😁😁😁😁

    They never have an answer for "How many advanced driving courses have you taken? Do you take road safety as seriously as I do with my yearly training courses?"
    So far no one giving those sorts of lectures has touched an advanced/defensive driving course.

    I think what it is people who are wreckless on a motorcycle are wreckless when it comes to the whole aspect of driving in general so when they have a bad experience on a motorcycle they tell other's that they used to ride and give them poor advice I think those people shouldn't be driving whether it's in a car or a motorcycle

    Some of us used to rode but succumbed to others fears, other responsibilities, etc. and don't pick it back up until things change. I won't give advice other than wear a helmet is the most important safety device. Yes, I had bad experiences back then, I lost skills in the 23 year time which is why I watch you and so many other guys videos. I bought a 20-year-old KLR 650 so I could thrash it and not be upset by jacking a nice cruiser etc. Not all of us thought it was something we would never do again, some of us totally realized that we had lost our skill level, but were not full of advice. Heck when I started again, it took me about 3 full days of riding to turn corners from a stop properly and to get close (but not quite where I wanted to be and remember being) on the clutch. Some of us totally remember and know that we are as unskilled as new rider brother. (BTW, I had a bad experience at 87th and Quivera also, but it was in 1991 on my uncles KZ1100, but it didn't make me scared, it made me know I still had skills to build even back then.)

    I agree! I hate it when I tell someone I ride a motorcycle, and they feel the need to tell me "oh, it's so dangerous! You can get killed. People die on those things" etc, etc, etc. What makes you think I want to hear all that shit!! hahaha!! But I agree with you, Dodge Rider - and I tell people - if you're smart, mature, don't do stupid shit, then riding a motorcycle is safe. It's the stupid people doing stupid shit, that give riding a bike a bad rep. Anyway, great video! Love the Concours... been struggling whether to get one or keep rinding my older 2000 Concours ZG1000. I dunno, that new Con is SWEET!!!!!!!!!!

    #Iusedtoridebut I dated a nurse for a while who referred to riders as "donors." Call me a pig, but I didn't want to donate anything to her in due time.
    #Iusedtoridebut a responsible parent will not inflict passenger torture on his future biker-chic daughter until she can kick over her own bike.
    #Iusedtoridebut I got fat. It's not pretty.
    #Iusedtoridebut western Kansas is too easy to leave behind, and south central Kansas is too much of a pit to escape.
    #Iusedtoridebut I was married. Not only was she tone-def and frigid, but she didn't like the bike. Put it another way: giving it up was not my brightest moment.
    #Iusedtoridebut the women my age that like to ride are taken. The older ones are worn our. And the younger ones are out of touch, crazy, substance abusers, or need a dad in their life. Partners on two wheels are rare if not fostered when both of you are in your teens.

    Ok, I get what you're saying, but don't be so dismissive. Why is it bad when people give you advice? Why be offended when people care enough to worry for you? Just say thank you and move on if you think the advice is below you. In the case of the old story that you don't really remember, the lady may have been sincerely worried about a young guy on a motorcycle. I DO ride, and acknowledge that motorcycles are inherently more dangerous than cars. Are you denying that? Are you seriously that arrogant that when people show some care about their fellow humans that it bothers you? Are you saying that you are so "attentive and intelligent" that you are above the risks somehow? I typically really enjoy your videos but in this one you just came off as an arrogant jerk.

    I can understand the concern or good intentions. It may be annoying to hear a lot, but it is good and heartfelt. I am an atheist so when people say merry Christmas or bless you I put it in the same category. "Thanks for the nice thoughts" and move on appreciating that they took the time to express kindness. Now if it is a lecture on how I'm doing things wrong or telling me what to do or what to believe then I will simply say bless your heart and move on. The people I think are a little out there, and so be it, that say they don't wear gear because they love to ride and fully expect and want to die on a motorcycle. More power to ya, but I can't understand the mentality.

If it isnt illegal then F*CK OFF....mind your own business....if you want to talk to me about my bike or want to go for a ride GREAT....if you are going to be my MOTHER and tell me all the things YOU believe I am doing wrong or are bad choices....well RIDE ON!!....I am going to make my choices, and if someone cant handle that, well I REALLY wish they would jsut sit back and have a nice big bowl of "mind your business" and a side of "Shut the hell up"

    I'm pro gun, and I love them, but of course guns make it easier to kill someone, therefore of course there are more murders because of guns. That's obvious.
    However, if you disagree, try imagining stabbing someone - up close and personal v shooting them at a safe distance - an arm's length away from his knife.
    I've been in a knife attack situation in a foreign street, it was nasty. He and his buddies were all heroin users. And he came at me from behind. Only the look in the face of the one facing me, my alertness and the fact that he was scared saved my life.
    I've also been in firefights. The difference is stark. The option to strike from cover and at a distance are the greatest advantages, but the element of surprise (and therefore safety for the shooter) increases with distance.
    Finally, that saying about the road to hell being paved with good intentions is a two sides coin. I suspect it comes from the perspective of the one with the good intentions. The problem is not with them, it's with the lack of empathy in the recipient.
    I served in the military. I now work to convince young guys NOT to sign up for the next banker war. My success rate is 50% - with guys. It's ZERO with girls!!! Why? Because, like you, they distrust, reject my advice and assume some ulterior motive. In their case they assume I think they're not tough enough. They're wrong. I just don't want them to kill any innocent civilians on behalf of the banks and corporations, in a country we have no fucking business illegally invading.
    All it takes is a little empathy. Oh, and the eponymous guy at the gas station may only be projecting his fears, but they may be based upon some real experience. That wall we build to learning from the cheap (for us) failures and mistakes of others is too tall and too solid - avoid it bro.

    We must be running into (pun) different breeds of "I used to ride" people. I almost never get the dangerous lecture. It's more often the wistful nostalgia chat about when they rode and sometimes how much they wish they had not stopped. Maybe it's because I look too old to be saved lol. In my youth I did hear lots of stories about old Harleys, Royal Enfields, Vincents etc., etc., and a great story from a dispatch rider in WWII.

    Seems like the "I used to ride" part isn't the problem, so I'm not sure why you fixate on it. But I agree that strangers, especially strangers that have no idea about motorcycling, judge you and give unwarranted "advice", and this is super frustrating / annoying. Nice juxtaposition of the corrola lady story next to the almost getting hit while stopped at a red light story.

    +Dodge Rider I have a question unrelated to this video. What are your thoughts about having a big sport tourer such as your Concours, or FJR1300 as your main, or only bike. I sold my '07 V-Strom 1000 and am in the market for a new bike. I'm thinking about replacing it with a new Yamaha Tracer GT, Super Tenere, or maybe even an FJR1300. I rode both the Tenere and FJR at Yamaha's demo days. Loved both bikes. Do think an FJR or Concours is too big as an everyday, only bike?

    • Dodge Rider
      Dodge Rider  7 месяцев назад +1

      I used to ride a Concours14 as a daily. They only reason I sold it several years back was that I was riding daily in stop and go traffic and in Kansas summers the combination of the weight and the heat just didn't make me enjoy being on the bike. Now that I don't have a commute like that again I bought another newer Concours14. It puts a smile on my face everytime I ride it.

    If Henry Ford had designed a motorcycle for the masses to replace the horse and buggy, "the car" today would be too dangerous. They obstruct the view. They are full of distracting things. They are very heavy. They take up a lot of physical space. They are slow to accelerate and stop. They could trap an occupant inside! Autos are dangerous. Let's not talk about how much they cost and how quickly that money disappears. Dangerous! Autos are very dangerous.

I leave myself an out, I pay attention, I watch the other guys and gals on the road and I’m ready to react to most anything. I’ve been riding 45 yrs and have heard it all. Great video speaking a lot of truth. I just like to ride and try 100% of the time to avoid conflict on the road. Give me my lane, my space, and I’m good.

      On a motorcycle, you can make good decisions, but some a-hole can still take you out in an instant. I prefer driving my white GMC Sierra 2500HD crew cab pickup truck. I get seen, and I don't get hit. But if I did get hit, the steel cage provides far more protection than a bike. I hung up the helmet 8 years ago, and rarely look back.

    Ok your point about guns, you are basically saying guns don't kill people, people kill people right!
    And in essence you are correct but first off, why make it easy for someone to kill another by allowing them the ability to kill that person with such ease.
    It takes the time to pull a trigger to make a bad decision, however if you didn't have those guns then it would take much longer to make that bad decision and maybe even time to change your mind, with a gun it's done, with out a gun you have time to think. You still may make a bad decision as many do, but at least you give others an opportunity to defend themselves and you have to put in real effort to make that bad decision.
    So no it's not just a case of guns don't kill people because guns make it easy to kill people.
    How would you feel about your next door neighbour owning a nuke bomb after all it's not the nuke that kills people is it, it's the person that owns it.
    Em don't quite seem the same does it, but the principle is exactly the same.

      +Scott Lee I'm sorry I thought you understood that.
      In the UK we do have violence and crime obviously but generally I would say we are better off not having the ability to own guns.
      Yes some criminals have guns and yes it may give them the upper hand at that instance, but the only people who cry for a criminal who carries a gun and gets shot dead are other criminals, and as much as we don't like the idea of people being killed I think most normal people breath easy knowing a gun toting criminal is now not longer at large.
      But even Americans who decide to stay in the UK feel much more at ease knowing that general citizens don't have access to guns.
      I was watching some videos of USA citizens who had made their home in the UK and they felt "so much more at ease" their words not my words even though they are not allowed to keep guns while in the UK.
      So why can we do but you can't? I don't mean you personally but people in the USA, why do you all feel the need to own guns to me it is madness.

      +flitsies Ah, you're from the UK. That explains just about everything.

      +Scott Lee Actually I would say you have that the wrong way around, it's not me that is scared, I'm not the one that feels a need to sleep with my guns under my pillow just in case, far from it.
      I have no problem walking the street at knight should I desire to do so, and I have no problem leaving my door open from time to time during the summer days.
      But you know what, I don't have guns, I don't feel the need to own them and I don't see any benefit by ordinary citizens owning them.
      In fact it's the complete opposite, the more people own guns the more trouble it stores up, so just to clarify.
      1/ I am not scared of my neighbours
      2/ I am not afraid of the people I meet or see on the streets.
      3/ I have no need to own guns as pretty much no one else has them other than criminals in the UK.
      4/ I rely on our very good police service to keep an eye and control the criminals.
      5/ I can understand why ordinary citizens in the USA feel the need to own guns, because of the fear that others having guns generates, one person has it so they all must have it or be at a disadvantage.
      But it's a vicious circle that brings terrible strife and harm.
      Guns do kill people with the assistance of the person holding it, they are not innocent items of fun, play with a gun and you stand a good chance of someone getting injured as that American police officer found out.
      I could go on and on about the problems guns bring to a society but you clearly are fixated by your weapons so it would be pointless.
      Be safe with those guns of yours and good luck to you, it's always good to get a different point of view.

      +flitsies there is no way that you are going to change your mind since your entire argument is emotional.
      So I am done with you. Continue to live in your little bubble and be scared all the time. I, and the rest of the millions of law abiding gun owners, will continue to enjoy our hobby and not killing anyone.

      +Scott Lee I don't dislike guns in the right hands, but there's the problem isn't it, in the right hands.
      Who is to say which person has the right hands to hold them.
      In the news today I read of a police officer in the USA who had been charged with unlawful manslaughter (or whatever it was) for the death of a colleague he was playing Russian roulette with, come on these are supposed to be police officers, playing with guns as though they were toys, one gets killed, what kind of society embraces guns makes the claim they are responsible, yet virtually every day you hear or read or watch those very same so-called responsible people shooting each other, or themselves, playing with guns as though they were toys.
      Come on get real, you want facts, just look at how many rampages on innocent people there has been.
      And you claim guns don't kill people right.
      Like I said and why I use the analogy of the Nuke is because it's ridiculous to think ordinary citizens are responsible enough to regularly hold and carry guns in public, one stupid simple mistake and people die.

    That guy in the red car gave you lots of time for you to take any necessary action.
    Ok second point you made about someone talking to you in a gas station, the reason why people do that is because they feel linked to you as a rider, they may well not be linked to you but having them do what they do means they look out for you while you are within view, this can come in handy when some idiot pulls across you or someone hits your bike while you are away from it, they often will connect with you and inform you that this has happened.
    So let them have their moment it's no big deal but could be for you.
    Also sometimes they just like to talk about bikes, reminisce about what they used to do, I very much doubt they are trying to tell you what or how to ride just that they want to connect with something they did in the past.
    It's not such a big deal really and as I said they could be very handy should something unpleasant happen and it's not your fault.

    Very presumptuous and a lot of what you are saying are exaggerations. Like i get some people are annoying but this can't happen more than once every 6 months, your just clutching at straws to make content for videos. Your so critical and that is visible when you are riding as well instead of enjoying your ride you just criticise drivers and make a massive thing about tiny mistakes drivers make. Honestly can not stand your videos anymore.

    These are the people who buy a rocket ship and scare themselves to death and then spend the next 10 years only riding it to the shop to get it serviced once a year. Covered with bumps and scratches as it gets shoved further into the garage with the occasional drop as it gets moved. I've been riding for 10 years........................

    motorbikes are just like guns you can shoot your self in the foot if you are not careful. you play stupid games you win stupid prizes. guns have a different use yes but they can still harm you or others just like your two wheeled machine. you can ride your motorbike safe are not, just like guns you can choose to go to the gun range or hunt or use it for protection or you can play duck, duck goose at schools and malls.
