I been wondering does anyone know how to look up the fatality rate of motorcycle riders. As current info as possible, I just want to know if the numbers support all the negativity spoken-.:icon_stud

you can google the studies done in the states... the real facts are that the older generation on larger displacement bikes are at a higher chance of being involved in fatal accident then any other group and age of any other riders...

i had the page booked marked let me see if i can find it again..

I just keep reading clips that state that the fatality rates are up. Compared to what, and does that percentage represent the difference between riders and car drivers.

you should also compare how many bikes that are on the road now to how many there was 10 or 15 years ago.

Our local paper had stats for norcal, and like 95% were older folks on harleys. They don't react as quickly, dont handle as well, and usually its baby boomers with a lower % of M1 certs. Most sportbike riders in our area grew up on bikes, and have HAD to take MSF classes just to get a license/bike
