For many individuals, riding a motorcycle is a way of life. With gasoline prices at an all time high, many new riders are switching to motorcycles and scooters. Unfortunately, motorcycles can pose serious risks as they lack the physical protection automobiles offer. Cars have airbags, seat belts, sheet metal and superior safety. For motorcycle riders, the protection is limited to riding gear such as a helmet and leathers. Motorcyclists are less visible, and more susceptible to serious injury posed by other drivers, defective roadway design, harsh weather conditions, and product defects. Victims may sustain broken limbs, road rash,brain injuries, and other harm, including death. In 2000 alone, 2,862 motorcyclists were killed, and another 58,000 were injured. If motorcyclists do survive their crashes, they may face large medical bills, job loss, permanent disability, and other hardships.
