  • The National Highway Transportation and Safety Agency (www.nhtsa.gov) has tons of stats and studies related to motorcycles and riders.
  • Insurance Information Institute has all the info. Here is the link http://www.iii.org/media/hottopics/insurance/motorcycle/?table_sort_739222=2

  • There is good reason the slang for a "motorcyclist" is "bonnet pizza"
  • 1/800 rides result in an accident. 1/5 accidents result in death. Cars are about 17 times safer but that's only because of the seatbelts/airbags. If you're not wearing your seatbelt you are no safer in a car than on a motorcycle.
