From article: Reduce drunken motorcycling. About 30% of motorcyclists killed in wrecks are legally drunk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) saysOr HD riders. I have heard from a couple of members that poker runs were more like bar crawls.
:agree: I'd guess that right now you have fewer "new" riders coming on the road if bike sales numbers are anything to go by. So part of this may be down to that fact.Personally I think the two biggest reasons for "fewer" deaths last year are the first two bullet points in the article. Deaths will prob. go back up when bike sales go back up. It's just that simple.
