It's about time. Seems like almost every other 'crash statistics' report will omit this...

After seeing the stupid bevavior this past weekend of kids on hyperbikes doing wheelies down the local freeway without helmets I can see why we have this increase..

I seriously doubt that it's the power the old folks are having trouble with on the new HD's, they don't have much. More likely it's the weight of all that chrome and leather.



Not a good stat no matter how you look at it.

The report seemed pretty balanced to me, -fatalities increased because number of riders increased-



No "motorcycles are dangerous" hysteria, no "ban them all, make them pay" nonsense



Are you sure that's a legitimate news artical?......

I think this is really simple.

The first 6-months of riding after you get your license shall be on a Royal Enfield Bullet of up to 500cc capacity.

Any infraction during the first year and you are restricted to a 350cc Royal Enfield and daylight hours of operation only.

Repeat offense? Your motorcycle endorsement is suspended, your Royal Enfield is impounded and you must complete 50 hours service on Royal Enifelds during a 6-month probationary period.
