I guess you don't keep up with the stats as well as you think. Nothing about any GoldWings. I took this off the Dragon site:

"2008 - As of August 11 Three deaths: One sportbike went off road and hit tree near Thunder Road Bend. One cruiser went off road in Ron's Run with rider suffering heart attack. One trike went off road and struck tree."

I am sure if I went there are counted ALL the crashes and not the ones that are reported, they would be nowhere near evenly divided.

The other 40% or so is about evenly-divided between "Sportbikers" and "Cruisers".

Gotta tell ya the above picture is the reason I'll not go.... I know, I know statistically blah, blah. I'd rather lose it on one of my back roads and just not get discovered than that.
