|FloridaMx5||...i'd include statistics of death/serious injury between those wearing helmets and those not. Also maybe the percentage of crashes compared to the number of registered motorcycles in the US with the percentage of car crashes compared to the number of registered cars.|

Or point out a m/c is not like a tank or 18 wheeler so often cage drivers do not take note of a m/c rider PLUS that cage drivers cannot judge the pace, slow or fast, of m/cs.
There are a maze of things your can mention.
Probably you could point out when it comes to a 'fender bender' of a cage not noteing the m/c situations are entirely different for cage to cage means the two get out of their vehicles compare DL to insurance & such, but the m/c is on its side, badly damage & good change the rider was hauled off to the emergency ward of the hospital. EVEN though the cage driver was, as so often, in the wrong of not noticing the m/c rider at the time--as so many cage drivers suddenly realized even though they are not in the correct lane they will make said left turn creating the accident with the m/c being in the correct lane & NOT prepared for someone to hope over said two lanes. Man it is endless the wrongs we can pick up for some of us have been around longer then many cage drivers & yes riding m/cs---myself being a driver/rider for 61 yrs & not once had I had an automotive accident, but often accidently forced off the road or INTENTIALLY, or finding a cage on MY lane comming at me & only alternative for me to possibly surevive is hit the ditch, or shoot off to the left of a farm or whatever often incountering the fence. In most casses the cage driver will try to scoot along being obviously a Hit & Run incident as the rider is DOWN.

|shifterx||Perhaps explain why it's not always the motorcycleists fault. It is often because cars and trucks on the road have no respect for what you have between your legs.|

How about information related to gear. Or schooling (MSF, track schools like CSS/Jason Pridmore/STT). How about crashes impact outside the rider himself, like the damage done to family and friends?
Boy, this one's an endless topic

|Rundog||You could compare the performance of an average bike to an average car, or you could theorize about the future increase in riders due to high gas prices, and what changes could decrease the rise in crashes.|

How about the unjustified dislike cagers have for bikers, based on the stupid actions of a minority who do stupid sh*t on the street?
