Motorcycle into car accident
It's not nice seeing these kind of statistics, specially when you're on holiday. In Belgium, according to the authorities, this summer, a motorcycle rider died every other day on their roads.

Since June, when the weather cleared up, many took their motorcycles out of the garage for the first time this year. With no honed reflexes and built-in danger warning systems, the bikers became easy victims of the deadly roads.

It's not that the bikers were at fault, since the stats show that only 20-25% of the accidents were caused by the bikers themselves, but with inactivity comes the non-ability to "see" the traffic situations up ahead. If you ride your motorcycle everyday, then you can see the cages making stupid and lethal mistakes, but if you've lost touch, you will not.

So the moral of the story is: keep on riding.
