Per a direct reply: I'd have to ride perhaps, oh, hmm... guessing at least 100 miles before i could find a parking lot that is empty enough for your description. I just happen to live a few blocks south of Koreatown proper here in L.A. Per the 2008 statistics, "42,611 people per square mile".
Per safe. . . what's "safe"?
That is exactly the attitude i am talking about. Thinking one is safe is the fastest way to ignore reality.
Maybe a picture will save a thousand words. . .
Hope this clarifies.

The one thing you can rely on as a certainty in any accident event is that instead of having the luxury of being a cop with a calculator measuring skid marks on the pavement, or an arm-chair quarterback watching a YouTube video is that it's YOU that are riding on your machine and you just happen to be human. During any such event, from the simple skidding on oil or ice to the outright head-on logging truck that just popped over the other side of the hill in your lane, you will only have time to react if you intend to survive. This is beyond the ability of decision. This is the simple facts that occur. Within those one or two seconds of control that you have, you will only do what you have habitually trained yourself to do, or you will rely on your natural instincts.
