Default Re: For some it never wears off

I saw an article on those injuries. The steep tank backs on sportbikes stop you moving forward in a crash but also cause some real bad injuries like a split pelvis which ain't good in anybodies' book. I'm going to lay 'er down next time so I can be safe!

The data on accidental deaths among the military is legit. it is tracked very closely by the military safety centers (they have an entire command dedicated to improving safety through accident investigation and lessons learned). Motorcycle fatalities among service members is a big deal in the services right now. Air Force has been having some success reducing the rate of fatalities among airmen, which they attribute to their motorcycle mentorship program. This is not just sensationalist journalism at work.
