  1. Many find motorcycle riding to be very sporty and exciting. Top of all one cannot ignore the fuel efficiency of motorcycles. With increased fuel price, vehicles that offer extra mileage are becoming more popular these days. Hence, motorcycles are gaining more popularity all over the world. But motorcycle riding is risky. Motorcycles are not as safe as a four wheeler; hence chances of accident are higher. According to the reports published in FARS Encyclopedia of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,810 people were injured in motorcycle accident in 2006. The figure is frightening! Besides, there are the pedestrians who were injured in motorcycle accidents. Hence, the total number of motorcycle accident victims is likely to be higher.
