Well if that's your only criteria, cruisers have far fewer accidents than supersports.

Well, I think statistics would say Cruiser riders. They are generally more laid back when they ride.

As a rule yeah - we're not trying to get there as fast as possible. Doesnt make us "better riders" though. Just means we have fewer wrecks. There are a lot of other issues that come into play with it.

Too many variables for too poorly worded of a poll.

I was specific about the bikes for a reason. Most cruisers don't find themselves in the same binds as sport bike riders sometimes do. The speed related issues are less likely on cruisers. For example let me see a chopper pull a stoppie to avoid a wreck. In reality the chopper my not ride fast enough to get in that bind. Its a case by case and rider vs. rider issue mostly.

You can't ask a question like "who's a better rider", basing the question off of the kind of bike they ride. There's no real answer.

track junkies who do not wreck at every track day make better riders on the street if they have not given up the street all together when it comes to avoiding wrecks or wiping out imo.

My mom has never wrecked (knock on wood) or done a track day. One of her rides was from Upstate NY to Alaska and back
