Default AMA Praises Motorcycle Industry for Funding New Motorcycle Crash Study

"The American Motorcyclist Association today praised the motorcycle industry for committing $2.8 million to make a new study into the causes of motorcycle crashes a reality. The motorcycle industry announced that it will provide the money through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. The funding will go to the Oklahoma Transportation Center, which is an independent and respected research center at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater." Read More

I'll perform the study for less than half the cost and refund $1.8 million:

1. A bunch of riders crashed because they rode over their heads.
2. A bunch of riders crashed because they're f'd up on something.
3. The rest of the riders crashed because some cager f'd up.

The scary part of your post, is that it's about 99% correct!

Yeah, I suspect there will be all the stats on rain vs. nice weather, single bike versus multiple vehicle, yada yada yada. The question always remains: how come some guys ride for years without an accident and others can't make it home from the dealer?

Well there you go: It should read: "KMooreMart Crash Research Fund." Apparently you've been victimized by one of those darn Internet scams.
