76% percent of all motorcycle fatalities happen after 2am on Saturday and Sunday morning. Seen another way, you only have 1 chance in 4 of making it home alive if your out riding then. Good Luck.

Whether the rider was right or wrong in his actions leading up to the accident, RIP. That really sucks for his friends and family who are left to deal with this.

What that shows is you have a poor comprehension of statistics. Assuming that your "76% of fatalities" number is correct, that just means that of all the deaths that have occurred while riding, 3 out of 4 have occurred during that time period. That says nothing of the proportion of deaths vs. total riders during that time period.

For the sake of numerical simplicity, assuming that there are 100 riders on the road during any given time frame, there could be 4 fatalities over the course of any given day with 3 deaths between 2am-6am on the weekend. That would give your 75% occurring during that time period.

With your assertion that you have a 1-in-4 chance of making it home alive, you're saying that 75 of those 100 riders on the road in that time period are going to die. Obviously NOT the same thing.

Yes, my statics are skewed, and I used probably an incorrect assumption. The best I found was 40-50% of motorcycling fatalities after 2am were due to alcohol. Trying to find just general numbers on all deaths after 2am showed old data in other states, but yes, not 75%, as motorcycles would probably be outlawed is 75 of 100 riders die every night after 2am. Makes for an interesting visual. But if my miscalculation makes you pay extra attention the next time your out late on 2 wheels... well then we all win.

Errors that glaring usually cause people to disregard the source entirely. Because of your "miscalculation," people will likely ignore most (if not all) of what you have to say. Unless it's to point out your mistake, I'd bet your post is forgotten as soon as it's read.

I think the stats being referenced are from the motorcycle training course that is required to get your M endorsement. Right about 50% of motorcycle fatalities occur between midnight and 3am on Friday and Saturday nights. Somewhere during that course they also mention that 3 out of 4 motorcyclists have some alcohol in their system between midnight and 3am.

Right about 48% of accidents involve riding at excessive speed as a factor, and about 48% of motorcycle accidents there is at least some alcohol in the rider's system. So watching your speed and staying sober helps a good bit. My rule of thumb is that I am rarely on the streets anymore after 11pm, especially on the weekends. I have a truck for a daily driver though. Watching your speed and being sober is a no-brainer. Be careful out there guys, and respect the fast m#th$rf&cker that you are riding.

That's why I am a big advocate of Funeral Expenses Insurance!! If you ride everyday like me, you owe it to your Family! In case you die your funeral expenses are covered and your Family don't need to deal with that. You get to choose what you want on your funeral service. In my case I got only the cremation and no service or ceremony of any type.
Sorry for going a little of-topic.
