If I am on the road and get a call the first thing I do is consider if I can do it safely due to traffic/weather ect. If I can I will take it. On the other hand just last week heading to the in-laws in VA I had to take the D.C. beltway. Of course, the phone rings. I have a wife that can take the call or let it go to voicemail. I will not endanger my wife or kids for a phone call. I will only answer if it is safe to do so. Now, your definition may differ than mine. I am sure it does but I am the one that makes it and no one else makes it for me.
Now as far as the motorcycle comments.....I had a bike for 16 years until my son was born. All cricket bikes/crotch rockets/rice burners....whatever you want to call them. I have taken the safety course and also took it a second time with my wife when she got her motorcycle license. I was also an instructor for 4 years teaching. I am in agreement with the "you see more on a bike" statement on how people really drive. You are taught to look for that. Being on a bike you are in a vulnerable position. That is why I gave it up when my first child was born. I need to be around while they grow. I just had a brother in-law die in a crash hitting the guard rail at high speeds on his bike. It was his stupidity but if he was in a car he would likely be alive today to see his 2 kids that are ages 17 and 12 graduate.
This thread could be argued to death......there is no winner. There wont be. We have to agree to disagree sometimes and on this thread that is continuous from one post to another.
Basically, I would never put myself, my family or others in danger.
