I love the idea of getting a motorcycle but know too many people that are hurt or dead. I think if I lived somewhere with more open or back roads it would be more reasonable, but NJ roads are just too contested and crazy. I don’t want to ride 50 miles just for nice roads ( I feel that it is different/not an issue when in a car). I just saw this new Ryker model pop up. $8500! I had to double check to make sure it is road legal. Seems like a reasonable enough price point. Question is, are these any safer? I feel these have more of a road presence and would be visible to oncoming drivers. The biggest issue in the sad motorcycle stories I’ve heard are people turning in front of the motorcycle, or in one case a truck trying to turn left from a right only parking lot exit. Seems motorcycles disappear into the landscape.
