That is terrible. Sorry to hear that.
It shouldn't matter what you're riding, of course. That's a tragedy. As motorcyclists we're all susceptible to severe injury, and even death, every time we set out on the road.
My brother rides a "crotch rocket", but he is a safe rider. He also owns a dirt bike. Sport bikes and dirt bikes are just what he prefers. He likes the weight to power ratio of super sport bikes. He loves the fact that they are tuned for performance, and maneuverability.
It doesn't matter what you ride, just that you ride. More of us, less of the cagers. Being a motorcyclist has made me a more vigilant cager. I try to always be aware of my surroundings, every moment.
Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.
