Being new to motorcycles, everyone I know is telling my I have a death wish. I took the safety course, I ride defensively on-road, and cautiously off-road. I wear all the gear all the time. I don't drink and ride, I keep my bike maintained fairly well, etc. etc. etc. BUT, I've seen a lot of very experienced people get seriously injured this year, and now I'm seeing stories about people getting seriously injured, arriving home on their motorcycle with no recollection of how they got there, laying in a ditch overnight because they were pinned under their bike, broken legs, etc. So, how many of you have have been injured, and how many have never been inured? If you have been injured, let's hear your story. If not, maybe some tips on how you've avoided it.
