There's some truth to that. However, saying "a lot" of people die on bikes may be a little much. There are a lot of people that 1)learned the wrong way to ride or 2)take too many risks, but not all.

Aye, it goes without saying being involved in a motorcycle crash has more risks involved than being buckled into a 1 or 2 ton steel cage. A lot of people do pull risky stunts on bikes, but then again a lot of people don't always notice a motorcycle either. I think people who ride ought to be more aware of their surrondings, but a major or fatal accident won't be avoided just because you aren't riding a bike either.

Indeed. And picking the part of the lane to be best noticed goes with being taught to ride the RIGHT way. for example; I learned to ride at Harley Davdisons Riders Edge coarse and having better situational awareness, knowing how to be visable, and having a plan to avoid an accident were some of the main parts of the coarse. But yes, it is inherently more dangerous than riding in a car.
 
nice traino!

Yup
My first bike was a Honda 90 about 1970 or so.

Next came a BSA 650 Thunderbolt maybe around 1972

I was bikeless for the next 12 years when I got my first Harley a 1982 Wide Glide.

In 1986 I got me a brand new Soft Tail Custom ahh my first belt driven. Sweeeet! My wife convinced me to sell it in 1991 for the down payment on a new and a bigger house.

But I got the pick of the litter in 1993 and I picked the love of my life a Wine Red Soft Tail Heritage. Sure was pretty. But atlas in 2000 we moved again to a bigger house and I sold it for $13,000, not bad considering I paid $14,000 in 93.

That will be my last bike. I don’t need a bigger house.

masterofpuppets*Agreed,Yeah although riding a bike is dangerous so is everything else for that matter really,it just seems people exagerate about alot of people getting killed on the roads are bikers.

My brother is looking at spending at least £1000 on safety gear alone but you can never out a price on your life.
