I think we should should show more compassion to the guy that got in the accident.
Scissors, do you have a like to the stuff you are shoveling? You have a lot of statistics, none of which conform to the Hurt report, as I understand it. If there is important new information to be had, I'd like to get it from the source.

The Hurt report was put together in the late 1970s. Since then motorcycles, traffic, and especially helmets and gear have all changed. Which is why the median pre-fatal-impact speed is now something like 55 MPH instead of ~35 MPH as it was in the Hurt Report.
I listed some of the sources (CODES 2003-2005 and NOPUS). Much of it comes from the DOT report "Motorcycle Helmet Use and Head and Facial Injuries - Crash Outcomes in CODES-Linked Data", which came out in October of 2009.
Keep in mind reading through the report that some of the informatin takes into account all recorded wrecks over the studied timeframe, and other portions refer only to those who died or were admitted to the hospital (which by definition ignores those who were not injured enough to die or go to the hospital).
The rest is calculated out from these sources.
