What a story. We all know there are variables we cannot control. Simple as that. Put all the ones in your favor that you can, and hope for the best. Consolation is that the same is true in life. I continue to believe riding my motorcycle through downtown Seattle and on I5 seems less dangerous to me than riding my bicycle.
I'm lucky that here in the PNW, and especially around Bainbridge Island where I live, there is a critical mass of people who ride their bikes every day year round. Every ferry you get on will have a handful of bikes, and during commute hours, it is not surprising to have 20 or more bikes. So no one around Seattle should be "surprised" to see us.
And having just been in Tucson, it is interesting to note the differences among riders in different geographic areas. In Tucson, everyone seemed to ride choppers and cruisers. And did so without helmets or any gear on. Here in Seattle, most folks ride dual sports or sportbikes, with BMW being the most common and the 1200GS being like a dime a dozen. And almost everyone wears ATGATT. Part of this is economics, but part of this is climate and culture.

We sit together the mountain and me, until only the mountain remains.
