Only 229 motorcyclists were killed in 2001? Bet it's much higher for 2008

I think that number is wrong...

http://www.clutchandchrome.com/Articles/Safety_2008.htm

" Indeed, the hard data does show motorcycle registrations jumping 63 percent, from 3,826,373 in 1997 to 6,227,146 in 2005. But unfortunately, fatalities have increased disproportionately to the rise in registrations and sales. Motorcycle fatalities have increased each year from a low of 2,116 in 1997 to an all-time high of 4,810 in 2006. "

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/bott...ad-deaths.html

"However, there were 5,154 motorcycle deaths in 2007 -- the highest number since the federal government began tracking deaths in 1975. That was a 6.6% increase from 2007 and represented 13% of all fatalities nationwide."

1/2 as many people died in a motorcycle crash than from alcohol related incidents in 2007.
