Post Motorcycle Accidents - Lower Extremity Injuries

This is a NHTSA report that runs 30 pages and can get kind of dry in lots of places, but it sure makes it very obvious that wearing our protective riding gear is very helpful in case we go down.

We can wash off the sweat when we wear our ATGATT, but those skin abrasions really hurt and don't go away so easy.

Any idea what they mean by weighted and non-weighted?

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

No, but it is a term used in statistics as relates to graphs.

I saw a group yesterday on the freeway, 1 guy riding with them was wearing a sleeveless t shirt, shorts, and flip flops, I thought to myself, he hasn't met the asphalt YET!!!

Joe,

My daughter and I saw a girl riding pillion last week, see thru blouse, head band, flip flops...

I commented that she has never tasted the asphalt yet and hope that she never does... all we could see was bare skin from ankles to bra line.

We see a lot of them around here. Mostly on crotch rockets, not so much on cruisers and tourers. Here in Ontario, there have been 30 MC deaths so far this year. All of last year there were 36 MC deaths. We have "maybe" another 1 1/2 to 2 months left of decent weather.
Some stats:

27 riders were driving the motorcycle
3 riders were passengers
10 riders were between the ages of 45 and 54
7 riders were between the ages of 55 and 64


All of the riders were wearing a helmet, (mandatory in Ontario).

Alcohol, excessive speed or losing control of the vehicle are just some of the factors in the collisions.

just today, I saw a news video of an officer investigating a multi-car + a motorcycle on a 4+ lane highway in Ontario... at the time of the video, they had Drones flying around mapping all of the debris for the Forensic Accident Investigators to figure out who dunnit.

IIRC, the m/c rider probably did not fare too well, he said there was "a fatality", but not who it was.

It was a fatality. A woman, 64 years old ran into the back of a car that was stopped for construction on the 401. It happened on Aug 18th of this year.
There's more, but that's the jist of it.

I recently read that about 30% of motorcycle accidents involve the bike rear ending another vehicle. If that's true, we are one of our own worst hazards! Heads up, eyes forward. Stay alive!
