Why do I drive in 40s?

It’s more than a half-year since I bought the bike. I learned to drive thereafter and now I drive with more confidence. Day by day I’m traveling more distance and every traveled mile boosts my confidence. Every new day I drive better than yesterday. However, most of my friends think that I drive too slowly. Whenever they get to ride with me on my bike, the first observation they make is my driving speed which hardly cross 50 km/h in normal traffic and I often receive the comment that I drive too slowly. Well, to be honest I never mind driving in 40s. If speed has to be the measure of safe driving then I would come last. Besides that there are several reasons for I drive in 40s and why you should too.

  • My bike is quite new and I would prefer to drive slowly till it travels a certain amount of distance to make sure it will do well in terms of mileage.
  • Most of the time, I ride along with friends settled on backseat that is when I take extra care and prefer to drive slowly.
  • I’m still in learning phase and I don’t want to push myself hard.
  • I want to drive as safe as possible and with less speed safety increases.
  • The routes I ride the bike on have small roads spread in the city with lots of turns.
  • The roads I drive by are always full of traffic and crowd.
  • With less speed the probability of meeting an accident decreases.
  • With less speed I can control my bike better.
  • I would never be in hurry to reach the destination.
  • I am no crazy for speed.
  • I don’t like to create unnecessary race or competition on roads and drive faster than others.
  • I don’t mind if someone takes over my bike and leaves me behind.

This is why I drive in 40s. I like speed but not very often. I believe the speed should be used when necessary otherwise driving in 40s is always safe. With that speed there is always possibility that a girl will come speeding over her Scooty to leave you behind. Well, I have some experience of that but I hardly cared.
