Default Re: Gov. Schwarzenegger never had a motorcycle license

Unfortunately, the Sacramento Bee newspaper had a sidebar story to the report of his accident that called his accident part of a "trend" of increasing motorcycle fatalities. The article quoted a bunch of raw figures of the number of injuries and deaths on motorcycles last year and compared them to the number in 1994. The article didn't attempt to compare these injuries to the number of bikes on the road or as a percentage of miles ridden.



I also just saw a story saying that the Governator has never had a valid CA motorcycle license. This was acknowledged by his spokesperson. On the other hand, it's a moot point as apparently the operation of a motorcycle with a sidecar doesn't require a motorcycle endorsement in CA, just a regular class "c" passenger car license. Though I'm sure he's ridden without the sidecar quite a bit as his motorcycle enthusiasm has been well documented over the years. Oops.

Yawn... More of the same generalization about motorcycling from an uninformed press.
