Let’s talk about something today as popular as it is stupid.
Motorcycles. If you ride a motorcycle, you will die in a fiery crash. It’s a guarantee. Guys that drive motorcycles have this manly macho air about them, at least that’s what women seem to think. When I see a guy drive by on a motorcycle, I think “Gosh, it’s too bad he can’t afford to buy a car.”
We have vehicles that have air conditioning, protection from the elements, 4 wheels. We invented a 4 wheel vehicle because it was a stable design. It doesn’t fall over when you stop moving. I’ve been at a stoplight behind a motorcycle and watched it literally fall over on its side and pin the guy to the ground. My car never does that to me.
And then we have the super-macho crotch rocket guys, who think it’s great fun to drive 100 mph on nothing but the rear tire. At least most of these guys wear helmets, so they can live as a cripple for the next 60 years along with their uninjured brain.
I’m not going to sit here and say that choppers aren’t cool to look at. They are. But as a mode of transportation they suck. They have all of the safety features of a moped, but they also go fast. Not a good combination.
So guys, if you think that driving a motorcycle makes you seem macho and worldly, just remember, those of us in our cars are laughing at you.
