    Motorcycles are perfectly safe, it's the morons in cars that kill motorcyclist.

    5 grand will buy you a Kawasaki ninja...faster than a corvette, better mileage than a civic. Yeah, not a good grocery getter, but perfect for commuting to work.

    My biggest fear would be driving between lines of stopped cars on the freeway. All it takes is one person to open their door at the wrong time and bam.

    I was just in Calif and I saw guys going through 5 lanes of traffic like a slalom course. Traffic was doing around 30mph while these fools had to be doing 60mph My brother is a fireman down there and says they scrape up what's left of those idiots all the time.

    I always wondered if it was actually legal for motorcycles to do this? I always wondered about parking too.

    Seems like a pretty good bonus to owning a motorcycle if you get to skip traffic and you never have to worry about finding a spot.

    What makes it even more hilariously dangerous is that car drivers stopped in traffic jams (aka "all of Los Angeles, all the time") resent motorcyclists for swerving through the traffic and will actively move their cars to stop them.

    Are they potentially very dangerous? Yes. Should they be illegal? No.

    The government should build roads just for motorcycles. Think about the weight demands (much lower), width (right of way needed), and they already tax bike owners enough (well in California they do). They should have their own roads in peak commute areas to make them more attractive, safer, and affordable.
