Guys, while anything can happen and sometimes does, the fact is that public street traffic violations and prevention laws are based on the averages of what really does happen.
Most 16 year olds want what is "cool" and in their mind the fastest crotch rocket out there is the coolest. I have been in a bike shop when a Dad trying to please his son was getting him a new cbr1000. I asked if it was his first bike and the Dad said yes. I told him he was making a mistake and he said that was what the boy wanted. I asked him if he had insurance to pay for the funeral.
What percentage of the RIP threads are for riders who have years of experience and were behaving responsibly at the time? It is not real high here, and I think because of the age and experience of our average member, it is higher here than in the general public.

Same here lol

Also you can die by anything. Even getting out of bed is dangerous.

Should states adopt a UK license strategy?

Funny you mention that. Two years ago on the rig I was assigned we had a fire drill. 3rd party service hand forgot he was on the top bunk, rolled over the bar that's suppose to keep you in the bunk, and broke some bone around the shoulder (I forget what it was exactly) when he hit the floor. So, yeah, getting out of bed can be dangerous.

Motor vehicles and powered machinery are very much the business of the state to regulate who is qualified to operate. Nobody would argue a no-experience 15yr old should be allowed to swing a 2-ton wrecking ball or control a construction crane. 185HP 250mph motorcycle should be no different.
I agree with you that motor vehicles are the business of the state to regulate, but I've gotta many "250mph" motorcycles have you seen on the street?
