My younger brother has a motorcycle and has had at least some form
of motorcycle ever since he could drive. He is currently twenty-five
years old, and my parents hate the fact that he owns a motorcycle.
What they don't know yet is that he is currently planning on going
back to school to get a degree in aviation so that he can earn his
commercial pilot's license. Yikes. http://www.idealhere.com
So, do my parents have any real reason or cause for concern? Um,
yes, I would say that they do. Famed female hip hop artist and
actress, Queen Latifah was extremely close to her younger brother
when he was tragically killed in a horrific motorcycle accident.
When I was a police officer in the Raleigh Police Department, there
was an incident right before I was hired where a Raleigh police
officer was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle after
hitting an unseen bump on the road. At times, it almost seems silly
to have a helmet law in certain states when it comes to riding a
motorcycle because what sort of real protection is a helmet going to
afford you when you are driving a motorcycle at speeds of over 80
miles per hour on an open road?
When I asked my brother why he wanted to own a motorcycle and more
importantly, why he would want to ride a motorcycle, his answer was
very typical of a guy- especially one at his tender age of 18 years
old (back then): "because it's a little dangerous and very freeing
". He said he liked the feel of the wind in his face when he was
speeding down the road. If that's the case, then why couldn't he get
a boating license or purchase a convertible car where he could put
the top up or down? Why choose a motorcycle? I still didn't
understand it. That's when I started to notice something.
Motorcycles attract a certain type of people.
When I first joined the police department, I noticed that the vast
majority of police officers had or owned some form of motorcycle.
Most of the motorcycles that were driven by police officers tended
to be of the Harley Davidson variation. However, there were a few
who enjoyed the sport bikes (similar to what my brother has). I
thought it was really odd that there was such an overwhelming
majority of men (and women) who seemed to really enjoy riding
motorcycles. When I talked about it with some of my friends, some
speculated that all people who owned motorcycles had at least one
tattoo and were extremely short. I'm not sure how true this is, but
I do know that there is something about driving out in the open with
nothing surrounding you to protect you really- that motorcycle
enthusiasts alike seem to find especially intriguing.
I still cannot quite put my finger on what it is about motorcycles
that really excites the owners, but I do know that they are much
more dangerous than driving in a vehicle.
