More like the South Carolina Department of the Obvious. Your tax dollars at work.

I hope that they didn't waste any money on that study. Anyone that rides could figure that out in about ten miles. What's the next study? Fish do better in water?

Phew!! Thank goodness South carolina comissioned that report.



When I'm in that state from now on I can ride relaxed knowing that the benevolent and wise SC government has made sure that all its concerned residents have also read that report and are actively adhering to it's conclusions.



....then I woke up and ate a hearty breakfast.

Default For those of you who didn't bother to read the story I have the W (condensed) version

"he SCDPS released its findings in September examining a rise in motorcycle fatalities that show more deaths among men over 35 years old. They found that the average age of a motorcycle fatality victim, during the time period studied, was 41 years old.



The SCDPS formed a task force to examine the facts behind each motorcycle fatality investigated by the Highway Patrol in 2005 and the first half of 2006. The committee analyzed 114 motorcycle fatalities from January of 2005 until June of 2006.



Of the number studied, they found that 103 (90 percent) of those killed were men; 75 (66 percent) were over the age of 35; 73 (64 percent) were not wearing helmets; 61 (54 percent) involved speeding.



The SCDPS attributes the rise in motorcycle fatalities to the fact that men over 35 years old are increasingly buying high-end, luxury cruiser motorcycles but failing, in many cases, to get the necessary training or licensing to ride such a motorcycle."

It figures that the onus of responsibility would be placed squarely on the shoulders of the riders thus allowing cage drivers to continue not paying attention to any vehicle smaller than a pickup truck.



It DOUBLE figures that YOU would secretly have a self satisfied smug look on your face because it seems to be mainly GPTB riders that are eating it on thier cruisers.

No smug look. But the numbers reported support my theory that cruisers are not as safe as sportbikes especially if driven by older new riders. If you ride a sportbike or sport standard and obey the traffic laws you are safer on it versus a cruiser.

Lesson in faulty logic for brain dead morons:



"But the numbers reported support my theory that cruisers are not as safe as sportbikes "





What numbers are those? Show me where it says that X number were sportbikes and Y number were cruisers. Here's a hint. It doesn't, so your 'theory' is a full of shyt as you are. Here's how your stupid logic works: 90% of men died in the crashes, therefore women are safer riders. See! The numbers proved it! Only 10% of women die in crashes, so they are better and safer riders. Agreed? Dumbass.
