That sucks Bunny. Take a look at the link to the Hurt report for how most accidents really happen (alcohol, not trained, not paying attention). If you are going the speed limit and dressed properly, you essentially eliminate all the roadrash incidents. Because you already have the mindset of SA and receiving proper training from professionals, you'd probably do well on a bike (a Ducati may not be the best to start on, however). You can be killed/injured even being surrounded by a car. It's all about keeping your head and eyes scanning the area around you (including your mirrors), conspicuity (bright clothes, headlight modulator, etc), and playing the "what if" game - something cagers (car drivers) should be doing as well. While you're more exposed, if you are trained, you also have more accident avoidance choices.

I did that a couple of times myself, except for me I was going 145 MPH and 175 MPH. I would like to get another bike, but for me it would have to be track only and there aren't any road tracks here.
