NO no no.

Danger depends on the rider. NOT the bike. Anyone who blames the bike is rejecting his (or her) own responsibility for riding safely.

That's the wrong question to be asking. The right questions to be asking are:

* has the rider taken the MSF safety course before getting on a bike?
* is the beginning rider on a smaller bike (such as a Ninja 250) to get more familiar with riding a motorcycle?
* is the bike well-maintained (no bald tires, decent brake pads, etc.)?
* has the rider practiced riding the bike at a deserted parking lot to get familiar with the bike's brakes and handling?
* is the rider wearing safety gear (full-faced helmet, protective jacket, etc.) while riding the motorcycle?
* is the rider alert and scanning for possible dangers (such as left turning vehicles) while riding the motorcycle on the road?

Default Run at 100ft down, something real bright out by the point

My sense is "troll". Of course I could be wrong, in which case perfect answers guys.

looks like a chic to me...any way as with cars, it's the driver/rider not the vehicle/motorcycle

No, not a chick. It was obvious from the user profile. I've sent him on a long vacation.

Probably for the best, anyone who posts under "accident" and ask which motorcycles are the most dangerous is likely not here for our rapier like wit and profound depth of knowledge......
