My Ride: 2001 330ci
I rode since 2005, when I bought my first streetbike. (I grew up riding dirtbikes). I commuted 50miles a day and put over 76, 6++ miles on it..until June 27 of last year. I was hit by a 19yr old girl while I was almost stopped-(overheard a cop say she was going 45-55mph). I'm very lucky to be alive. Would I ride again? YES!! First I have two daughter's I want to see grow up and move out, then I will want another. Will it be to commute on?? Hell NO!! F'N idiots out there paying more attention to their phones.. It will be for enjoyment. All you can do is make sure, and I mean SURE, that he wears gear all the time...no exceptions! Gear is what saved my life (and crumple zones of newer cars..2009 camry-trashed the front end). It was this wreck that is the reason I am on this forum.. I had to have a convertible, and the Bmw fit the bill. I'm still needing surgery on a tendon in my right ankle, but I'm here....it could have been very different.
