Pretty Interesting.  Thanks, it is a good article.

I found this very interesting;Over the course of the study, 30 of the 100 riders crashed. That’s a rather big percentage, but it makes more sense when you consider that over half of the crashes (17) were low speed falls. Past studies didn’t include mundane tipovers, because nobody reported them.

 A good argument for Gymkhana from this.

That was my thought too. I was wondering if anyone else would pick up on that.

Within a few months of buying my first bike I dropped it.  I forgot to put the kickstand down ::) 

Interesting study but everyone needs to identify their own risk factors.
