Young people wanting to begin motorcycling should choose a safe and comfortable motorcycle upon which they can master the basics of motorcycle safety. A simple café racer with a less than 300 c.c. engine is a good place to start because it provides the thrill of the open road without too powerful of an engine. Too often, young riders purchase super sport bikes which can reach speeds reserved for NASCAR drivers. According to the senior vice president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), super sport bikes “can be deadly…These bikes made up less than 10 percent of registered motorcycles in 2005 but accounted for over 25 percent of rider deaths.”
Recently, a 21-year-old motorcyclist riding a 2015 Kawasaki EX250 died near the intersection of Martin Luther King and Oakey Boulevard in Las Vegas on February 8 at approximately 3:30 a.m. According to investigators, the motorcyclist lost control of his Kawasaki and veered off the side of the road and up onto the sidewalk where he collided with a street lamp.
