With the exception of Rider, all of the above plus Motorcyclist, ATV Rider, rideamotorcycle.com, Friction Zone, and Backroads.I don't think he wrote for Sport Rider - I think it was MC Cruiser or Cruising Rider or Rider or one of those.
You might want to do a little research. The trends appear to be changing. However, until a dedicated study is conducted, no one can be certain.2) it has been my observation that people who ride cruisers wearing beanies are at CONSIDERABLY lower risk than the average R1 organ donor wearing full racing gear on the street.
EvansThese numbers have led to a lot of speculation about the causes. Sales of new streetbikes have more than doubled during since 1997, so it seems apparent that more people are riding motorcycles. Many of the patterns seem to run counter to those traditionally seen in motorcycle accidents. For example, the motorcycle accident caused by the driver of another vehicle who violates the rider's right-of-way at an urban intersection is apparently becoming less common than the motorcyclist who crashes all by himself on a rural road. Where riders in their 20s once formed the largest group in fatal motorcycle-accident statistics, older riders (over 40) have become the dominant segment. Alcohol involvement continues to be a major factor, but has declined during the last few years. More and more riders have received formal rider education even as the fatality numbers have risen. The apparent increase of fatal accidents as a percentage of the total accident pictures suggests that we are doing a poorer job of protecting ourselves--perhaps because fewer states have helmet laws and more riders are wearing non-protective novelty helmets that don't meet DOT standards in states where helmets are required--or that we are crashing harder. Cruisers are apparently a bigger part of the accident picture, but then they are also a bigger part of the bike-sales picture.
