Motorcycle Statistics

http://www.fz6-forum.com/forum/main-...dds-death.html

Do not concern yourself with the first post, but rather the second post. Yes, it can be said that motorcycles can be more dangers (up to 5 times more dangerous), but look how low that percentage is. Other hobbies such as base jumping (according to an insurance agency) can have up to a 1.8-2% risk; while motorcycles only have .00068% chance of death.

Of course this percentage is purely hypothetical. To really evaluate death percentages, you'd have to individually do it for each person.

What I'd really like to know is the chance of permanent injury.

Just Rambling. Feel free to jump in or not

Yes, but there aren't 5 million people doing base jumping in the US so that number is quite skewed.

I don't base jump so I'll never die from it unless I start base jumping.....

The time spent at risk for base jumping is typically less than the time spent riding so that has to be factored in--a motorcyclist will never die in a motorcycle accident when they aren't riding. And also as jbaz pointed out far less than 5 million are base jumpers.
