Now i've been riding a 700 yamaha virago for about a year and a half. Thats the bike that i learned on and it tought me a lot! But about a month ago, i decided that i needed something more, and i chose a 2000 R6, racing red. I have no coverage because i am to young to afford it and am barely getting by as is. Now your probably thinking, "Well then you shouldn't even ride a bike." Now hear this, i crashed it 4 days after i purchased it. I was on my way to get new tires because the guy who had it before didn't know didly squat about bikes, he was a straight up poser. The rear tire was bad, but not critical, and the front should be changed. I now know that i should've gotten tires the day i got it. but the tires are besides the point. yes, they caused me to crash, my fault. But i learned two extremely large lessons after that crash. 1) Tires make all the difference, don't overestimate them cause they mean sometimes life or death. And 2) there could have been somebody walking right where i crashed and i would have been fucked royally. I got a lot of lectures after that about insurance and all that crap. So i now know that insurance is the greatest thing you could do for not just yourself, but for other people too. I sometimes think about it and i realize that insurance IS for other people. Because i don't care if i crash, i know that i'm gonna be okay, and if i get hurt, i did it doin a fat wheelie goin 95mph.
So i still don't have insurance because i can't afford it, and i still ride my bike because it's my only transportation, rain sleek or shine(definitly not snow, forget that!). But when i ride, it's purely defensive. The whole time, defensive. i only ride aggresive, really aggresive on the track, and i have yet to do it because my bike is still in my garage. But i will eventually get insurance, when i get the job, most likely the military. But insurance is probably the one and only thing they should think about before getting a bike. And if you don't have insurance and are not planning on getting any, i'm sorry but you do not deserve your bike because of you stupidity. But no worries here, yes i am a hypocrite for just saying that but i know my limits. I would just hate to see someone get sewed or put in jail for their stupid ass decision to not even think of insurance. So Reunin is so right, GET INSURANCE!
