Updated as of Feb 2016. Some interesting bits here....

Illustration for article titled IIHS Motorcycle Fatality Report

The ones that stand out to me:

- 28% didn’t have a license

- The fasted growing group is > 50 yrs old

- 36% weren’t wearing a helmet

- Standards / Cruisers were the biggest group (1,441), then Supersports (989), then Touring (718)


- Only 20% of Supersports fatalities weren’t wearing a helmet, compared to 43% for Standards / Cruisers and 47% for Touring

- 30% of all fatalities involved a rider with a BAC of > 0.08%. That jumps to 43% for single-vehicle accidents, and 55% for those that occured between 9pm and 3pm.
