What is the main idea of the following passage?

 Charlie’s job didn’t get a lot of action compared to cops in
  bigger towns, but he did get called in on traffic accidents.
  With the long, wet stretches of freeway twisting and
  turning through the forest, blind corner after blind
  corner, there was no shortage of that kind of action. But
  even with all the huge log-haulers barreling around the
  turns, mostly people walked away. The exceptions to
  that rule were often on motorcycles, and Charlie had
  seen one too many victims, almost always kids, smeared
  on the highway. He’d made me promise before I was ten
  that I would never accept a ride on a motorcycle. Even at
  that age, I didn’t have to think twice before promising.
  Who would want to ride a motorcycle here? It would be
  like taking a sixty-mile-per-hour bath.

 A. Charlie’s job is boring.

 C. Charlie hates motorcycles.
