Riding a motorcycle is dangerous. Statistics show that "per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists' risk of a fatal crash is 35 times greater than a passenger car. Motorcycle fatalities represent approximately five percent of all highway fatalities each year, yet motorcycles represent just two percent of all registered vehicles in the United States. One of the main reasons motorcyclists are killed in crashes is because the motorcycle itself provides virtually no protection in a crash" (Wikipedia).

If you ride long enough, there is a strong possibility you may be involved in an accident. If you regularly ride far above the speed limit, and have never taken a motorcycle training course, that time may come sooner than later. If that time comes, what you decided to wear that day may determine how much time you spend in the hospital - if you're lucky.

However, if you take a training course, wear good gear and don't treat the street like a race track, you may beat the statistics. And if you do have an accident, you may have a good chance of walking away from it.

The goal of this website is raise awareness of the dangers of riding, and provide tips on how you can ride safer. Look around, learn from what you see and read, and become a wiser rider.
