Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
That's why there are single vehicle motorcycle fatalities.
Once I hit an oil slick, invisible on the asphalt, while I was making a turn in town & hardly moving. Bike went right out from underneath me, leaving me unhurt but facing a wall of traffic. Luckily for me, I didn't get run over. My biggest problem was trying to pull the bike back up, when I had a hard time even standing on that slick surface! But every time I see a photo of a bike leaned over like this, I think of that oil slick- and what might have happened, if I'd been going fast. Don't think I want to take that chance anymore; but it was sure fun when I was younger!
Regardless of the danger, the photo does capture the essence of THRILL.
That IS how to commute. So...when are you going to join the club and buy a Ducatti? I suggest the Diavel.
