Hey, you got your bike up to 75...for the first time, that takes guts. And you got your first drop out of the way--and not at speed. That's fortuitous! Sounds like a win to me! Just wear your gear all the time and have fun on the bike...

didn't understand the op, but what I got was he went 75, made a Jump on highway, and failed it landing in a mall parking lot injured, if this is true, sucks for you.

75 you are an idiot, care less about what other people do with their lives, and live your own........... Motorcycles been around a long time, and each and every rider knows the risks every time they saddle up. If they don't then they get what the deserve.

@31 Its alright at that speed. =) Adrenaline rush! 90miles per hr, THATS scarier. But considering that OP is probably new to riding, ITS PRETTY DAMN HORRIFYING.

Enjoy your murdercycles. Those damn things are deadly. Take it from a trauma surgeon. There is something very comforting about having 3000 pounds of steel and fiberglass surrounding me if I'm in an accident.

75 on a motorcycle isn't too bad. I can hit 70 in first gear easily. I regularly hit triple digits on the freeway as long as the roads are open, there's a lot of "oomph" behind a street bike if you lay on the throttle....

I've been a daily rider for 6 years now. 13 000 miles a year. There's absolutely nothing scary in going at that speed in a straight line. Scary is going fast in a mountain road, with lots of curves. Scary is going fast on a racetrack. But speed itself ? Especially with the quality of the chassis of modern bikes ? If 75 on the highway is scary to you, then you are not made for this.

I agree, he's a N00B!!!! Why have a bike if you're skeered to go 75mph? I'm a GIRL and have DEF gone faster + never layed my bike down in a damn parking lot. idiot. Methinks OP needs a MSC.

@ 38 so, ok, true, they are quite dangerous, more than a car is, but how about the fact that they are better for the environment since they go faster and longer on less gas? :) And about people dying.. You know the whole world is getting overpopulated? lol ok ok, that's cruel, but true.. if ya think about it :P

YDI for having the nerve to take your cycle up to 75 on the freeway. you shouldnt do it out of nerve, do it when you feel you are ready. even though you didnt fall on the freeway, you mightve. idk

#53 - it's not about who causes the accident. It's the fact that you're generally in a much worse position after getting in an accident when you're on a motorcycle compared to when you're in a car. Even if the person in the car caused the accident, that's not going to lessen the motor cyclists injuries. Believe Doc when he says those accidents are nasty - I've seen some of those victims myself, and there's no way I'm driving a bike anymore.
