Just pull out the .44 and fire an AP round through the radiator, air conditioner heat exchanger and engine block as you pass. Problem solved.

Believe me it's tempting. Maybe one of the old Shovelhead tranny sprockets I have laying around?

Dropping one on the hood as I pass would be down right refreshing...

Am I the only one who noticed their 'study' is completely flawed?

they measured deaths per registered bike! not per mile traveled. The conclusion could just as easily be that sport bikes get ridden 3x as many miles.

Shame on the LA times for not doing their job and just buying into this study showing no sign of true journalism.

At least those were correctly read studies and there have been many of them so I think it's safe to say it's a fact that your safer with a helmet.
