I wasn't taking bullet bikes into account. I hate the things, so it didn't cross my mind. The ninja 250 doesn't really have a preformace engine. Don't know about the ninja 500. I was thinking about the sub 2,500 cruisers. That's where you want the larger engine. I think we're on the same page, different paragraphs.

The fatality rates for cruiser and "standard" riders rank the lowest, at 5.7 deaths per 10,000 registered motorcycles. Touring bikes, such as the Harley example, averaged 6.5 deaths, with sport bikes totaling 10.7 deaths per 10,000
n 2009, only four of 24 motorcyclists who died in accidents were younger than 45. The average age of the victims rose to 49.5 years.
Nine people were killed in August alone. Eight of those were 46 or older.
Motorcycle safety instructor Dan Terry says most older riders now getting licenses either never previously rode a motorcycle or are rusty after decades without a bike.

Kind of like "most" OCers are looking for attention and mall security are "cop wannabes"

Went to the movies this weekend. Don't think the two harley's that left afterwards around midnight could have been any louder. The phrase "Loud Pipes Save Lives" originated from cruiser riders, not sport bikers.
