very informative. interesting reading. the numbers for multiple vehicle accidents is much higher in this report than government conducted, national reports (75% vs. 60%). i.e. these guys are reporting that it's more the car's fault than the cyclist than the govt is.

interesting; definately shows a certain pattern in several areas. along those similar lines, more than 70% of passenger vehicle accidents in america are caused by the less than 1% of drivers who have suspended or revoked licenses. wich is why i say if your license was taken, " STAY OFF THE ROAD"

Good reading on the "HURT" report and made me remember the night I was coming home at around dusk. Just coming off extended high-speed highway cruise on Yam FZ600 and as I approached the first slow down entering town I relaxed and took one hand off the bars to give it shake, when suddenly from my left I saw a blurr and felt large whack in the left hip that nearly pitched me off the bike. Being curious as to what slammed into me, I did a quick u-turn and all the while thinking I may have hit an owl, due to the time of day. To my amazement, I actually collided with a flying squirrel!..poor little guy. Could not believe how hard this little guy hit me and the force felt so much larger. Thats my 1%...it can happen.

I'm surprised that it is not included in the Summary

-- one of the most prominent (and practical) conclusions of the HURT Report was that the single most effective strategy for a motorcyclist interested in avoiding one of those cager-motorcycle collisions is to equip his/her vehicle with one of those headlight modulators that flashes your headlight on and off at a set frequency. The frequency is actually specifically designed so that even if the cager is "lost in space" it will have an impact on his brain circuits.

My #(&(*&#$ m109 already looks like I have one. First time riding in the dark was tonight and I could tell by the road and signs that my loose headlight setup (way to go, Suzuki) was imitating one rather nicely :eek:

p.w. where'd you get that nice looking seat cover dynamos2000? she really spices up the bike.
