if balance is the only thing, you could get a trike...but i've only seen senior citizens riding those.

A dirtbike yes.
A street bike or cruiser for road riding? Not a chance.
I don't trust cars and have several friends that have had cars pull out and hit them. At least if I bail in a field or on a track on a dirt bike its my fault and not the fault of someone who doesn't pay attention. I like to control my fate as much as possible.
My 2 cents.
They are in AZ. Many of my friends have them legalized. Im doing mine soon.

In order to be fast, you have to know when to be slow.

I made a deal with the fiance, if gas hits 4.25 here, I get a bike the next day. already have the liscense, just never bought one. I do ride the quad everywhere close to home. The cops by me dont care as long as you're driving normal and use handsignals if there are blinkers available.

Not if your smart and wear the gear.

3 years ago I was riding my 2000 Yamaha YZF-600 on a 4 lane highway and somebody decided to pull out in front of me off a side road. I was going ~75mph hit both brakes and swerved but couldn't get out of the way fast enough and ran smack into the rear quarter panel of an audi A4 sedan. Got ejected from the bike flew over the car and landed on my head and shoulder first then proceded to roll down the highway stopping about 100 feet from the accident.

I was wearing a not cheap, but not expensive helmet (HJC $120), leather riding jacket, riding boots, gloves, and jeans.

Without the gear I would have probably been dead or brain dead. The helmet did it's job and I had no head injuries after smaking the concrete at about 50 miles an hour. Since I had all the right stuff I only ended up with a fractured shoulder and a Tib/Fib fracture right above my boot.

Three months later I had a new bike. I moved up and bought a 2001 GSXR-750.

Sold the Gixer last year and decided to try a little something different and bought a 2003 Buell XB9S Lightning.

As long as your not a dumb A$$ and wear the gear and ride smart it's the most exciting thing you can do EVERYDAY!

Just my 2 cents.

Gear wont protect you from being run over multiple times on a freeway.

1968 XLCH Sportster

Here's my classic !

Kick only, ( Yeah I have sportster knee ) !

It's a fun cruiser and I use it putt around town and go on Toy Runs, etc. Leather and a brain bucket is a good thing, when you go down, and it's not if you go down it's definately when. You must understand that a motorcycles natural position is on it's side, so you can ride as sensible as possible and still you'll eventually crash. You just have to ride very defensively, expect that cage drivers don't see you, adjust your headlight up and to the left so it shines in cage drivers eyes and always remember that "Loud Pipes, Save Lives" ...Mine are straight pipes, no mufflers ... heh, heh, heh !!!

But the majority of people dont wear stuff like your talking about an either get killed or end up in a wheel chair for the rest of there life, but its a good thing you had your stuff on or you could have been hurt alot worse.
