I think perhaps I misrepresented my point. I don't mean to say I fear the bike as if its a sentient being. It's a tool. I simply mean to say that I fear it's capabilities, and as such, I approach it carefully every time I ride. Not so much fear as caution.

Like a table saw. Respect it, and don't Fcuk around, and you'll be fine.

Don't pay attention, or mis use it, and you lose a finger, or are digging splinters out of your stomach

I personally take comfort in knowing what it can do. It's nice to know that in a tense moment the only thing stopping you from making that corner or stopping in time is you.

Lol just giving you a hard time. Good analogy though. Even a master woodworker can mess up and lose a finger.

Re: Ever been scared of your bike?

I'm scared(respective) of what this machine is capable EVERY time I ride...

There is ALWAYS the potential to be seriously hurt, or killed when you throw a leg over...
