They are fun to drive. But motorcycles can be dangerous, especially during the summer months, when drivers of big four-wheel SUVs and other oversized vehicles tend to be more aggressive in heavy traffic and less willing to share the right of way with motorcyclists.
Four wheel vehicles provide far more driver protection than motorcycles. As such, bikers are far more likely to be injured while riding no matter how many safety precautions are taken. Falls from a bike on the highway often result in serious injuries and leave the rider with permanent scars and disfigurement.
