Guess what object fatally injured riders in Europe hit the most often?? :-k The study the visor down article references is the MAIDS study. Google it. Not that long ago, MUARC produced a study that identified that 50% of fatal collisions were with another vehicle. Recently CARRS-Q in Queensland released an information brochure that spells out that 2/3rds of motorcycle collisions are with another vehicle. = = = = = = = = http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle...eres-what-youre-most-likely-to-hit/12204.html A EUROPEAN study of 921 motorcycle accidents reports that you've got a 60% chance of a car being your collision partner during an accident. The study shows what the collision partner was and not what the cause of the accident was. In 60% of cases, a car was the collision partner. The collision partner breakdown is as follows: 9% roadway, 8.4% Truck/SUV/Bus, 8% Fixed object (sign post, tree), 6.9% another motorcycle or scooter, 2.7% parked vehicle, 2.5% nothing, 2.1% bicycle/pedestrian, 0.3% animal. The study has been produced from data taken from accidents in Italy, Holland, Germany, France and Spain. Last month, Visordown published a news story on Where you're most likely to get injured during a motorcycle accident. = = = = = = = = .
