It's probably high time for a graduated licensing system, whereby a novice would be mandated by law to a maximum displacement motorcycle he or she could ride I believe such systems are common place in other parts of the world. I'm not entirely certain of the statistics, but I would gather the majority of the serious accidents are caused by youth with vast excess of exuberance and insufficient skill. I've been riding 20 years and it sickens me when I see some (not all) young guns weaving in and out of highway traffic at obscene speeds. You don't have to have a fast bike to be obnoxious and disrespectful to the safety of other road users. It's a culture and mentality of these type of individuals and unfortunately I think the lawmakers have no choice but to protect these types of twits from themselves.
