    Speed Kills but so does inattention to the road. Faster MC’s kill more people yet I wonder how many people are killed because of a lack of situational awareness?

    Motorcycles are more danerous than guns. Where are the organizations against motorcycles?

      Motorcycles shouldn’t be compared to guns. As motorcycles aren’t designed to kill. They can kill if they aren’t used properly just like cars, trucks, buses, and other forms of transportation.
