I had an interesting discussion with one of my Harley Ride passengers yesterday. She said, "There are more motorcycle deaths happening now, aren't there" or words to that effect. She seemed to be of the opinion that more motorcycle riders were dying or being injured that ever before. She was quite surprised when I explained that on a per-capita basis, it has never been safer to ride a motorcycle. I then went on to explain some facts about the TAC. She now understands - that all the TAC say is not quite true or accurate. And to cap it off I was able to demonstrate how a motorcycle is safer than a car - and that you can't fall off a moving motorcycle. Tick - one more person converted by demonstration and explanation.
