Not everyone feels safe riding on a motorcycle. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:09 Explanations: 3:19 Fast dialog: 16:53 Bernadette: When you offered to give me a ride to work, I didn’t know you rode a motorcycle. I’m not sure about this. Pawel: Come on, put on this helmet and get on. You’ll get to work much faster. We can zip around cars and go between lanes. Bernadette: That’s what I’m afraid of. Pawel: I’m an experienced driver. I rode a moped when I was a teenager, had a scooter in college, and got my first bike when I was 22. I ride with my motorcycle club every weekend, so you don’t have to worry about safety. Bernadette: I’m sure you’re a good driver, but one wrong move and I’m road kill. Pawel: Get on and I promise to behave. I won’t pop any wheelies, spin out, or do any other tricks. Bernadette: If that was intended to put my mind at ease, it didn’t work. Pawel: All right, last call. You want a ride to work or not? Bernadette: Okay, I’m putting my life in your hands. If I die, it’ll be on your conscience. Pawel: No worries. If we wipe out, it’ll take us both out, so I won’t be conscious to worry about my conscience. Hold on! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
