Yeah, but what it says is that 3% of the 97% lived with helmets vs 5% of the 3% without helmets...You can't just compare the 3% vs the 5% without looking at the bigger question: 3% of what number vs 5% of what number...There were far more helmeted riders in this study than non helmeted, so the 3% looks much smaller in that context than the 5% of 3% number...

Yeah, for someone who's constantly *****ing about other people costing him money, he's been responsible for at least two insurance claims that we know of.



My total motor vehicle accidents to date: zero.



I subsidize cellphone-yakking branch-whackers.

Ed: No way for a man to die.



Frank: You're right, Ed. A parachute not opening - that's the way to die, getting caught in a combine,

having your nuts bit off by a Laplander. That's the way l want to go.

Or the slight problem with the young guys still accounting for 3/4s of the wrecks.

Here's a statistic. Nearly 100% of motorcycles get better gas mileage than cars! Maybe there is somebody out there trying to scare the cr@# out of people so they won't opt for more fuel efficient transportation. What was Exxon's profit last year?



Here's another statistic. Ninety percent of motocyclists killed never took a motorcycle safety course, according to the MSF. Being stupid hurts!
