I don't have any links and I'm too beat to look for any, but last I knew, the majority of fatalities were middle aged guys on cruisers, most either new riders or riders returning to the sport after a long hiatus.2007VTX said:does anyone know the percentage of wrecks from crotch rockets as compared to cruisers or touring bikes? Also, is there any info on deaths as far as the percentage of what kind of bikes were used (again, crotch rockets, cruisers, touring). I'm curious because for a while I was hearing about a motorcycle death it seemed like twice a week if not my in San Antonio. When I would read up on them, 19 out of 20 were crotch rocket guys going 80+ MPH. I guess it's just for my own peace of mind but I would like to find statistics on guys who drive like me. Got a cruiser and sometimes use it to commute, but mainly use it to drive on country roads where I rarely see too many other cars. I know anything can happen at anytime but would be curious to see the trends at least. Thanks if anyone has any info. It sure seems like more motorcyclists are going down in all parts of the country these days and that's a little scary regardless.
