UH, helmet, finger gloves, and yeah... you dont have to drive it that fast!
I reserve the power for getting out of sticky situations, if a mopeder passes me, than oh well, an ego issue i think maybe. besides if your bike doesnt have shocks on the front and rear and YOUR GOING 30MPH on it, prepare for death anyway if you hit a bump in the road or anything else for that matter.
I live in las vegas and traffic is crazy so every time i take my bike out, I think of my funeral, but more ppl have died standing at bus stops here in the last year than have died on motorized bicycles!
dont want danger? stay home and learn to knit~! (just a joke,dont flame me)
