It is too bad that the interview was lost, as I'm sure it would've been a good one to read!
I have absolutely nothing against motorcycle riders, but I do have a request that they not ride the center line. That is extremely dangerous and a LOT of them do it. I understand you don't want to ride in the tire ruts or where all the leaked chemicals are, but please then choose to ride along the white line instead. It would be safer for you and make us car/SUV/truck drivers feel safer, as well. Though you may not have to worry about your own driving skills, but you do have to worry about other people's skills.
Those of you who ride crotch-rockets and other types of bikes, just because you are on a speedy little bike does not mean that you can weave in and out traffic because you think you can squeeze yourself in there. You have to follow the rules, just like the rest of us!! You give all of the other bike riders a bad name!!
Regardless of my two cents, please be safe out there... and enjoy your ride!!
