Motorcycle on LA Freeways
February 16, 2014 5:28 PM Subscribe
So I've just moved to LA (awesome) and am thinking of getting a motorcycle as my primary mode of transport. Thing is, when I mention this to my friends (most of which aren't licensed to ride a motorcycle), I get incredulous looks and/or stern warnings as to how silly and dangerous a proposition this is.

Now, I'm an experienced rider and I've survived crazy Indian traffic where I was riding a bike for the better part of three years... in short, I think I can handle it.
But, it'd be great to hear from people who are riding bikes in LA.
Specifically, do you perceive LA traffic to be more dangerous to motorcyclists than other cities?
If so, how?
Also, any general tips you may want to share with regards to riding a motorcycle in LA would be much appreciated.
