There is a lot that can go wrong when driving a motorcycle. Motorcycle riders are more exposed than auto drivers. So, the injuries they sustain can be more severe. Also, there is somewhat of a stigma attached to bikers that doesn't help your case. Overall, there are characteristics unique to motorcycle accidents that are helpful to know if you're ever in one.
Motorcycles are a lot of fun. You are riding a vehicle that doesn't leave you so isolated from your environment, typically is more responsive than a car and uses less gas. And last but not least: You look cool! But the unfortunate tradeoff is that it can be a dangerous or deadly proposition if you get into an accident.
