No, man, once a motorcyclist your odds of dying in a crash increase dramatically! I estimated for them to be about 1 in 5 (20%) for our lifetimes.

The only person that read the stats correctly is Jay! I am impressed

Look at how they figured. Its basing the equation off of the total people in the population. Just think of all the people in our population that don't ride or will never get on a bike in their lifetime. To get a real number you'd have to figure out how many people actually ride motorcycles and then compare that figure to how many motorcycle deaths there were.

I'm never going to be a passenger of agriculure vehicle or special construction vehicle but they are still using me in that stat to come up with a number of what the odds i would be killed in that vehicle.

B.S. stat page. I love seeing my tax dollars wasted.

...and therefore we must follow with some fantasy scenarios to mediate that somehow?

See including the women in the population for testicular cancer is throwing the number.

Lance Armstrong should only get counted for .5 too.
