I was in my mid twenties when I sold my first motorcycle. I rode with some friends and we went fast all the time. I was afraid I'd end up in a wheel chair or dead. I knew 7 people that all died the same way, crossing the center line in the twisties and hitting a car head on. I really got into cycling at that time and have not known any one to die or be severely injured on a bicycle. I did get another motor bike, but had gained a little self control as well. Really enjoying cycling now, but wouldn't mind an SV650 for tooling around one when not on my bicycle.
