From a new riders perspective, who has very little ride time or experience under my belt (and who is struggling with the "fear factor" every time I even contemplate riding), this video was both encouraging and inspirational.

Thanks for sharing Kuroshio!

Cheers,
Robster

I thought the same things after my accident years ago. Pretty much everyone I know hates that I ride, especially having two kids. You can try to explain the feeling to them forever but they won't get it.

The media and everyone always remembers the accidents and negative crap, but don't give media attention to all the bike runs and things of that nature every year, which are almost ALWAYS to raise money for charity.

We'll always have bad people shining a bad light on us, but thats not what we're all about. Going for a nice ride with friends is one the best experiences I've had in my entire life.

Stay safe and have fun out there.

Default Thank You!

I am going to immediately have my girlfriend watch this video... It's one of the hardest things to do, to describe a "feeling" with words, but they nailed it pretty darn good here. Great Job.
