5 Reasons Why Being A Motorcyclist Sucks

If you're thinking about getting into motorcycles, please watch this video. If you already ride a motorcycle, please watch this video. If you used to ride, please watch this video. One of the most difficult things about following your passion is the realization that you may be alone. Motorcycling is no exception.
People will tell you that motorcycles are dangerous. They'll tell you endless stories about how they knew a guy who died while riding his Harley. They may even look at you differently afterwards. Every which way you turn, those naysayers will constantly remind you that your passion, is either ridiculous, stupid, dangerous, or all of the above.
Listen, if you enjoy riding a motorcycle, don't let other people stop you. Even if those people may be the ones you love. To me, motorcycles have become my way to escape this world. When I ride, it's really just my meditation time. Maybe that's why people always describe me as a happy child. I have found my peace and don't sweat the little things in life anymore! I hope that you all will find your peace as well.

  • Why insult motorcyclers when they just enjoy driving? Not every motorcyclist dies every time they ride a bike. Pray for them to come home safely instead of wishing for them to crash terribly. 1:30-1:50 ugly, wretched stigma.

  • I am a car guy and I never consider myself driving a motorcycle, it's far too dangerous. I'm just gonna be honest I respect these riders cause of what they do, doing something I never think myself doing and am sorry for who lost a close person because of this hobby. Try your best not to get injured or worse

  • 1:20 Similar thing happened to me, i slid out on my bike and messed up my ankle (constant comments from the car riders) a few weeks later one of them ended up going too fast around a corner. He slid out, rolled and hit a wall in a tow truck, dudes dead. Personally i feel much safer having the ability to bail out if i feel things are going south.

  • If people were honest from what I've experienced, most people buy a bike and then sell it because they are broke. They buy a bike when they shouldn't of. Whether its college or bad financial habits they get a bike that they really couldn't afford and then tell people some bs reason why they quit.

  • if riding was "safe" everyone would ride. the danger is was makes the passion a passion and the motorcycle community is the icing on top. I've met some of my best friends from riding. Don't let fear stop you from riding but do make calculated decisions and risk management. if I have kids id probably start track riding only because of idiot drivers but I can't give up my passion.

  • Oh man I'm glad I found this video. I rode for around two years before things tapered off. I sold most of my stuff late last year and early this year. Not gonna lie it was painful watching it all go, but in the end it was the right decision. I still see bikers on the road sometimes and miss it. I think back to the few times I got a knee down on track days. It truly was the most amazing and visceral experience I've ever had on any motorized vehicle. The high you get from all of it is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I know exactly why people love to ride and keep riding. Unfortunately some of the reasons to quit rang true for me. I had less time with a SO to enjoy it, and less money too. The cost on top of everything else was just hard to justify, especially with other interests I have. I'd be lying too if crashing didn't also play a factor, but for me personally the stakes were too high, as I have a chronic illness too. In the end my other interests in life and the lifestyle creep were hard to justify. Still love seeing other riders out there. I'll always have that appreciation for riding, and I just want you all to be safe while you enjoy it.

  • My dad bought me my first bike at age 11, I’ve been in love with two wheeled vehicles since. I’m 53 years old now and I’ve had a couple of wrecks and countless close calls while riding a motorcycle. I’ve had more than a few friends severely injured or killed while riding. I get the “riding a motorcycle is dangerous “ speech from friends and family on a regular basis. My typical response is this: If I die while riding my motorcycle, know this, I was the happiest I could possibly be up until I grabbed as much brake as possible and started cussing profusely.

  • I get everything said in this video and i have no problem with bikers who ride decently. However, i really detest riders whose behavior are accident causing. People like to say BMW drivers like cutting people off, that's decent compared to riders. They either ride slower than a bus or weave in and out of traffic when the flow is already at least 10 km/h more than the speed limit. If everyone around you is driving above the limit, it means no one is hogging the road. There's no need to overtake just cause you have the size of an insect. Of course, i guess the reason is cause speed cameras have difficulty picking up bikes so riders think they can be lawless without consequence. Another accident causing behavior from riders is rushing out from stop lines just cause bikes have a higher acceleration than cars. Cars on the main road you are entering have the right of way no matter what vehicle you are on. If you can't get out of the way without causing a reaction from the oncoming driver, you are not fast enough. Riding a bike doesn't make you look cool, just more irritating cause it's more difficult to judge the position of an insect.

  • My dad tells people to stop riding when they ask why he lifts his leg. After his accident after a year of trying to save it his leg they had to cut it off. He’s in his 50s and has the energy of an 80 year old. I never got a real dad in my life we couldn’t do anything together. I wanted to learn how to hunt and fix cars and bikes ect. And he just can’t.

I Have been mpre stressed while driving tham riding. I only took the car twice to school and got enough of it. Finding any parking space is a masterpiece, while on my bike i just park it in front of school. My virago 535 is much quicker and funnier than my octavia 1.6 TDI. I feel like i have much more control over everything and can make better decisions on my bike than on my car since i have much better visibility to everything around me. I only think the car is better when i need to carry a big thing or a lot of luggage, but still there are saddle bags for something.
