The largest INCREASE in fatalities was the 40+ age group on large bikes. (my bad). Something like 300% in the past 10 years. Here's some stats which I'm sure have gone up even more since '04.

Hmm....40+ years old, no helmet, wonder what kind of bike is this person riding? Cruiser, chopper, or street? Shouldn't be weaving with these type of big heavy bikes. Besides, if he was last in the group and chances are that his buddy won't know until they got to the meeting spot. Rider's error. RIP.

Yep. That's what I was looking at.

20-29 went from 909 to 1041. 40-49 went from 359 to 971.

These stats were from '04. So at that rate 40+ could be the highest by now. :eh:

yes, but from the chart, the highest fatality of the age groups would then be the <40...but keeping to the original thread...what a crappy riding group...

Those stats are old.. I believe they passed the 20 age group in 05. Where is Ed when we need him?

+1.. who wants to be old anyway?

I would like to see stats on how many of the older crowd was wearing gear (helmets) vs how many of the younger ones were.

He is right. I have read the report but can't find the link to it.

Not sure if this completely related but when we had the insurance adjuster out for Skid's track incident, the guy told us that he has the most claims on cruiser bikes. They have the most accidents. Sportbikes may have more damage because they get really messed up when they do (he was also the adjuster for the incident on Frantz Rd where the guy raced a Cadillac and chopped off his head in a tree - that CBR600RR was totalled) but cruisers have a larger percentage of claims.

The reason for the cruisers' accidents he said was mostly failure to negotiate a turn - and we are not speaking high speed. :eh: He said most of the people that put in these types of claims are mid-age or older and only ride a few times a year.

So did you tell the adjuster it happened at the track?
