Those stats are always misleading, for example one year in Daytona the death count included drunken bikers falling off hotel balconies and guys wearing leather who were run over on cross walks by AARP members.



Frankly, given the amount of liquor consumed and testosterone present I'm surprised 100's don't die!



BTW, after they repealed the helmet law in Florida, the next Daytona meet had a lower casualty rate than the preceeding helmeted ones....go figure!

Come on KPaul, imagine that, a lower toll after the helmet became a person's choice. Funny how that works. Sure, if you hit your head during a wreck that helmet might save your drool maker but I maintain that people without the helmets pay more attention to what they are doing. If a person is out doing stunts and the like and wreck then who the heck can feel for them if then crack their brain pan open helmet or not. If that biker is out there racing his sport bike at twice the speed limit then he'd better wear all the protective gear he can put on. When he wrecks and maims himself or others then the stats should be seperate. Sport bikes are cool and all but they are the real reason all the nonbikers insist on helmet laws for the rest of us. Riding under the influence is also part of the equation.

The second photo looks like it was taken in a den of vampires. Check out the eyes. Very scary.

Default Symptom, or cause?

I have a question:



Do fat people gravitate towards cruisers, or do HD riders start off looking normal,

and develop enormous bellies following some Harley Dream (TM) of 'crusin' for beers'?



Just curious...

Is sniveling about other folks taste and enjoyment a requirement here, or is it an option? Sure is a lot of it for whatever reason!

If you are really curious, go up to one of those guys with the enormous bellies and ask them personally. Get real close so you can hear their answer. Go fish another pond dipshyt.

Dude. I think you are wrong if you are saying that most riders are hurt because of speeding, or because they ride sport bikes.



Most bike accidents actually occur at relatively low speeds. This is one of leading arguments for the anti-helmet crowd. Check the Hurt report.
