The age old question
"In a crash, do you want to stay on the bike or get tossed clear?"

In my 3 crashes between 2009 and 2015, I think I'd been better if I was seatbelted down. The second and third impacts are what caused the major damages.

The Goldwing crash I went thru the windshield and hit the ground hard, the bike just laid over.

The 2010 Burgman crash when I low sided and then the tires caught and flipped me up and slammed me into the fender followed by the Burgman slamming into me it may have gone a bit different.

The 2015 Burgman crash after the first impact of the concrete barrier I hit the ground hard and slid over 450 feet on the rummble strips. A seatbelt may have changed things, may have been worse.

Doesn't look like too much fun driving in the rain.

Is any bike fun riding in the rain?!
Must be part of getting old.
I used to go OUT riding in the rain. These days I don't go out if it's going to, (allegedly), rain.
Not so much the getting wet. I have the gear for that. But the cleaning of the cr*p off the scooter afterward.

The weather man getting it wrong has cost me quite a few wasted riding days this year.
