wow the stats wouldn't be so high if people wouldn't buy the biggest engine bike they can afford for their mid-life crisis, with little to no previous experience.

Not saying that is the only thing increasing the number, as they show increases across the board, but the largest increases were in the 1000cc+ range with age 40+

One thing i wish they could factor in is who was at fault...i bet the amount of car and bike crashes has also increased at about the same rates or more.

The 23-page report can be summarized with this simple equation:

Middle aged poser + no experience + no training + no gear + sloppy cruiser type bike = recipe for disaster

I'm not picking on any particular age group, the report supports this conclusion.
Age isn't the single demographic factor in these fatalities, but when you start adding the other factors in my equation, it's pretty easy to predict the future.

Seriously!

That being said I have the perfect beginner bike, it's not even a Sportbike, it's a Standard and lord knows they have no power, great way to learn how to ride:

I'll wait until I'm 40, then get the boss hog and take up poker runs. Lol.

On another note, I put on 8k on my Busa since November of last year. I ride once a day, and I RARELY ever see any sport bikes around here. I see about 100 cruisers a day though.

Really reinforces the fact that most sportbike owners are a bunch of curb posers. Guy across the street has a CBR that I've seen him ride once around the block, guy next to me has an R6 that he has ridden maybe 3 times for under an hour or less.

I love that fuckin Harley - But, after this past weekend, I remembered the joy that the SD can provide as I was coughing, sneezing, sniffling and smiling in my helmet the whole time she was leaned over
