Hey all,

I just read an interesting report on motorcycle accidents/fatalities from the 
people who study such things. Their main point seems to show Supersport bikes 
and younger riders as a dangerous combination. It is even more so than the 
view that the boomers on Hogs are all running off the road. 

One thing that I found interesting was the claim that only about 50% of 
riders across the nation wear helmets. Is this possible or true? I'm a full gear 
kind of guy and the thought of arriving at the scene of the accident unclad is 
too ugly to think about.

Any comments?
