I guess that blows the whole "riding in the rain is dangerous" thread.The majority of motorcycle fatality collisions occur on dry roads, during daylight hours, in the spring and summer months.
Approximately 75% of motorcycle fatalities are single-vehicle incidents, with the inability to maintain control of the motorcycle in the lane of travel as the leading cause of motorcycle fatalities in Washington.
so if I get a sex change and stay sober, I might squeak out a few more years on two wheels........:eekInteresting stats, just shows that we can do lots to decrease our risk of crashing.
I did look at some death stats from the ride2die site for October. 11 times as many men died as women. Stats from another site show about 5.5 times as many male riders vs. female riders. So men seem to be involved in fatal crashes about twice as much per rider as women.
