Startups and the art of motorcycle maintenance

As more than one biker has told me when pressed on the danger question: don’t ride unless you can’t imagine a life without motorcycles. For that person, the risk calculation might just work out. Likewise, most startup founders I know can’t imagine living otherwise, and many continue on the startup ride even after initial successes.
