I've got one stat that took me 8 years of tedious surveying and field studies to compile....


.... if you never ride your motorcycle, you are never going to get in a motorcycle crash. Other than that, I've got nothing. ;-)

Don't feel bad, jander. It doesn't take much to sucker in the resident post whore. Starting a thread - any thread - is enough.

all statistics can be reduced to the universal statistic:

All events have a 50% probability: Either it happens, or it doesn't.

for all you newbies out there...


if you ride smart and wear your gear, your gonna crash... and sometimes crash hard! :Humpty: maybe now, maybe later!

if you ride like rabbit on speed, without ur gear.. your gonna crash, and maybe a good chance, die! :banghead:

out of everyone I know who has been riding for over 2 years, including people who work at dealerships, one hasnt crashed. Chances are you're going to crash your bike. people should come to terms with this before they even think of riding. All you can do is be alert, wear gear, and use common sense. Dont think about crashing, just enjoy the ride and worry about crashing when you're just about to.

Actualy, i would say the more you ride, the less likely to crash. You keep your skills honed and you abilty to detect problems gets better.

The weekend warrior is more likely to try to over do it in the short period of time they ride.

The only thing you're in control of is how you ride to reduce the possibility of accidents. Unless you're a dumbshiz, you're not purposely trying to wreck. The other side of it is out of your control, like a car smacking you from the rear.

very true, but the weekend riders are usually away from traffic and the commuters are always in it so that kind of evens things out i think.

only one crash to my record, bout 8 years ago. never dropped or layed down a bike other than that. almost highsided at about 70mph, recovered and tried to ride it out. then lowsided it in the grass. You know those neat video clips, where the bike flips up into the air and tumbles end over end. I got to watch my 600 F2 do that, as i slid it out. oh yeah, did i mention i was only wearing jeans and a t-shirt? no road rash, but lots of grass stains, even in my hair. (got very lucky)

I learned my lesson the hard way, didn't get hurt, other than my bruised ego and a swollen knee. Never outride your ability, ride safe. Wear your gear, take the MSF, yadda yadda yadda..... you know the drill.

You may never go down, for the whole extent of your life riding on 2 wheels. But you don't jump in your car expecting to crash it either, but you put that seatbelt on. Wear your gear, it's all you got.

i've been riding for over 9 years, and have had my own bikes for the past 3 years. i've only been in one wreck and it was on my very first bike, a Kawasaki EX250R, lol. i hit a patch of oil and dirt going through a turn coming off the freeway 3/4 of the way through the turn, and there was nothing i could do. slammed into the curb and the rest is just a blur. never wrecked or dropped anything since then, so as long as you ride safe and be defensive, you're more likely to AVOID crashing, and lessen your chances of getting yourself into one of those unavoidable crash situations.

be safe everyone, and take care!

Age and experience play a critical part in this. Here is a couple of statistics from a study done years ago.

20. Motorcycle riders between the ages of 16 and 24 are significantly overrepresented in accidents; motorcycle riders between the ages of 30 and 50 are significantly underrepresented.


24. The motorcycle riders involved in accidents are essentially without training; 92% were self-taught or learned from family or friends. Motorcycle rider training experience reduces accident involvement and is related to reduced injuries in the event of accidents.



25. More than half of the accident-involved motorcycle riders had less than 5 months experience on the accident motorcycle, although the total street riding experience was almost 3 years. Motorcycle riders with dirt bike experience are significantly underrepresented in the accident data.

damn, I thought I was going to see some hardcore # and statis analysis on the topic. Then I saw the original post.
