Yeh you should be more cautious with the bike. I lost two friends within one month about a month ago. They would ride crazy and fast over 170+ mph sometimes, but even when driving at normal speeds they got hit and both accidents they didnt survive the crash. So, even if you're the best rider and they both had 10+ years riding experience, all it takes is one mistake from someone else on that bike and you're life is either over, you're in a wheelchair, or you're a vegetable. Just think about and be safe. Ride in packs with other bikers or go to the track.
