I didn't know how much experience you have riding bikes, so don't take it personal.
Back to your point, you can't remove all risks from your life, you can get injured or killed in a million ways, of course. It's up to you how big you want that risk to be. My joke-advice was because in my experience, bike riders get hurt much much more often than car drivers. I think we can all agree with that.
As long as you ride safe, I'm good with that.
