Make sure you wear jeans, cause that protects you better than shorts in a tumble.

There's a lot more riders in the area I live in. How do I know this, because of the type of rider I come across. Women, who would never have been riding before, re-entry riders and lots of kids.



The kids, mostly under 30 and some older Harley riders are figuring disproportionately high in the accident and death reports in our local paper.



I'd guess that bikes sold is not a bad denominater in your calculation.

And it prevents your sack and frank from hanging out when you sit with them forward pegs.

I have also noticed that a lot more ladies are riding lately than I have ever seen before. Roads I ride on that was virtually deserted only a few years back now seem to have a lot of two-wheeled traffic.



There is definitely a strong correlation between motorcycle sales number and number of motorcyclists.

That has got to be the most naive statement I've ever heard in my life.

Default Wake up and smell the coffee

"The "Fatality Rate per 100 Million" (miles traveled), which has nearly doubled from 22.73 to 39.89 fatalities per 100 million miles traveled during the period of 1997 to 2004 (See Note 1 below). This is the chart that should be the focus of concern, because the numbers are sobering." from see more Facts and data
