    Lightning used to bother me. Then, I became a sailor. The first time you're offshore in a sailboat with an aluminum mast sticking up above you and lightning striking the water around you, its either accept the risk or leave the lifestyle. Same with bikes.

    Well we've come this far on the subject. This about sums it up from my experience with lightning.
