Riding deaths up 6.6%

New York Times online has an article up (free registration required) indicating motorcycle deaths rose by 6.6% in the past year.

Interesting snippet:
Quote:
At the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, which is financed by the manufacturers, Tim Buche, the president, said a person killed on a motorcycle was 2.5 times more likely to be under the influence of alcohol than a person killed in a car and three times more likely not to have a proper license.

“There’s risks in everything in life, but the risks can be addressed,” Mr. Buche said, by training, licensing, riding sober and wearing protective gear.
