I found these analyses of motorcycle crash figures. http://www.michigan.gov/msp/0,1607,7-123--135253--,00.html And for once they contain useful information. Unlike one study which concluded "Kawasakis and Suzukis are overrepresented in motorcycle crashes" (not very useful) this contains some surprises. For example, I wasn't expecting to see such a large number of riders crashing into the rear of stationary vehicles. If you can spare the time to plough through it, do.
