There are so many cars and trucks with loud mufflers now that drown out the motorcycles, especially Hondas.
I have had a few close calls with motorcycles. One without a headlight on when it was dismal and rainy and I didn't see it right away, the others because the rider was doing something stupid like passing me when a car was coming toward me in the opposite lane. I watch for them closely, maybe because I used to ride a bicycle in town.
Hubby watches for motorcycles. He rode one until he was forced off the road by a car that was passing another car on a blind curve, on a very narrow gravel road. He was very lucky, the bike was scuffed and his pants shredded. He had no permanent damage.
