    New motorcycle safety report published

    The Motorcycle Safety Foundation paid the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute several million dollars to perform a multi-year motorcycle riding and crash analysis in order to provide a more current study of motorcycle crashes than the one that was originally performed by Harry Hurt in 1981. Here is a summary of the results of this 100-sample study: https://www.revzilla.com/common-trea...ur-motorcycles
    Richard - Current bikes: 2018 16.6 kWh Zero S, 2016 BMW R1200RS, 2011 Royal Enfield 500, 2009 BMW F650GS, 2005 Triumph T-100 Bonneville, 2002 Yamaha FZ1 (FZS1000N) and a 1978 Honda Kick 'N Go Senior.

    I wonder if this research started when CHP observed bad trends in motorcycle safety and opened up the motorcycle training contract.
