Can someone please explain to me why people think a harley is safer than a sportbike? When people ask me what i ride i tell them a cbr. Their response is usually "oh my god they are so dangerous please be careful". But when my friend who is standing right next to me answers the same question with "A fatboy" they just say "oh cool". I get into arguments with people all the time over this. I stop in half the distance, accelerate way faster if needed, and handle 1000 times better. Is there anywhere where i can find statistics on this. Cruiser vs Sportbike accidents??
