    I hope you are kidding.. The cars are deathtraps even more than the motorcycles. Really! I learned that from the motorcycle school class over 10 years ago.

    I hope you're kidding. Where are the airbags, seatbelts and ABS on a motorcycle? Not to mention Motorcycle VS Car...Car wins.

    I like motorcycles, I did my licens with 18 for both..just motorcycles are for sure not very safe, but still much more fun to drive.

    True but motorcycles are less dangerous than driving a car. Statistically, you are in more danger driving a car than riding a bike. If you practice safe, sober riding, there is absolutely no reason why you should fear death. Motorcycle riding is a safer, cheaper form of transportation and less harmful to the environment.

    I found one:

    There were 43,510 vehicle-related fatalities in 2005. Of those, 4,576 were motorcyclists, 4,892 were pedestrians, and 23,237 were drivers in non-bike vehicles.

    http://www-fars.nhtsa.dot.gov/Main/index.aspx

    In 2005 there were 6.2 million registered motorcycles. There were 232 million registered automobiles and light trucks.

    http://www.bts.gov/publications/state_tran...fast_facts.html

    For motorcycles there was 1 death for every 1355 registered motorcycles.

    For autos/light trucks there was 1 death for every 9984 registered autos/light trucks.

    If your anecdotal data is correct in regards to your 10,000-member, safety-oriented, motorcyle club having only three deaths in the last three years then the club is as safe as average drivers and six times as safe as average motorcyclists. See? [​IMG]

    well German statistics say something else, but I couldn't find a English version.
    At least in Germany and France, their are far more deads (in %) on motorcycles than with cars.
    could be that our roads are different than yours, we have like million of highways with 5-6 tracks and unlimited speed (germany) and ordinary road..well, very dangerous, cause you can't see if someone comes from infront if you overtake sb.

    One thing at least is world wide the same, if you have an accident with a MC youre dead, in a car you have at least some chances.

    I live in Florida and for every 15-25 cars I see one motorcycle, I think accident rates would be lower on motorcycles since their are more cars... From what I see anyways, but I do believe motorcycles are more dangerous, the fact they have no seat belts or airbags alone is enough for me to think that. I think motorcycles are more dangerous, that doesn't mean I think the motorcycle drivers are the cause to this, sometimes accidents happen. I rather be hit while in a car.

    You won't get much response talking about America here. GBAtemp is not a USA based website. Unlike say, GameFAQs.

    Whats your point? The data says bikers have more deaths than car drivers on a percentage basis. You're contradicting yourself.

    Who the hell cares to what degree motorcycle are dangerous guys ?
    War is far more dangerous, but I still like to play COD.

    What I like to know is, is this game any good ?

    Oops! Your attitude is showing… The only thing "unacceptable" here is your attitude. That is not nice to do. I want to be friends with you guys... Is this so bad ? And I just want to discuss it, but your attitude is unacceptable. Please don't, alright ? [​IMG]
