According to statistics, those modern motorcyclists still have some leeway in terms of time that they enter the Broze Botten Zone. But they are enveloped in security systems in such a way that they are likely to be invulnerable or simply terrified.
And fear is man's greatest motivation. That is not sex.
The trade has responded fantastically to the fear of the motorcyclist, who is getting older and more frightened. He was already optional on the Honda Goldwing, but is now also available for Ducati: the airbag or crash balloon. A somewhat modern engine nowadays has an anti-lock braking system. That's handy. But how to make a block so powerful that traction, acceleration limits torque and power at specific speeds, speeds or road conditions? That is not added security. That is a pity.
Motorcycle clothing has become immeasurably better than at the time that a tight-fitting leather race overall still guaranteed the height of safety and speed. And the technology of that motorcycle clothing, including boots, gloves and helmets is no less than high tech. Impressive.
But when you see a fully collision and fall proof motorcyclist, including a green vest sweating eating an Italian ice cream ...
When you are punished by an almost indignant modern motorcyclist because you come to the local motorcycle shop to get something in your jeans and T-shirt.
Then you really happily swing your leg over the buddy of your classic. Your motorcycle 1.o. Your motorcycle that you feel and smell that your motorcycle is driving.
The current safety hype is a bit like the fear of sex because if you have bad luck you can get very scary diseases.
And has that ever stopped you?
