No but seriously, both sides bring up very solid points. However, I am going to side with Richard Hammond on this one, despite his little comment about getting a motorcycle license by the time your 17, or just don't bother getting one. I've rode bikes many times before, and honestly, I knew I was hooked the second I twisted the throttle.
The big fear of bikes however; is that if you fall, your done for. So just make sure you know what your doing, and if you fall, make sure it looks good so you'll have a good story to tell one day.
Here's the real question, which is better? Cars or bikes? Let me know in the comments!
