Motorcycle collision/theft data by city

The following article (which I found on the GS Resources forum) provides interesting information on collision and theft data collected by Progressive Insurance.

The body of the article lists only the top ten or so in each category; further on in the text are links to more comprehensive lists.

Be interesting to see how many of the high crime areas are near military bases.
I just read an interesting research paper stating that bike gangs and other gang land activity is heavy near and IN military bases.

High military concentration at 1, 3, 4, 6, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 28, 32, 33, 40, 41, 42, 43, 45, 47, 48, 49, 56, 64, 65, 66 at which point I got tired of checking.

I don't know if correlation = causation on this particular point. Most of those are large metro areas.

I hate to hijack the thread, but I wonder if this has been caused by the lack of enrollment in the armed services?

Since voluntary enrollments have declined (perhaps because of the WAR?, thank you Prez Georgie), recruiters have lowered the bar and have started to reach out to the disillusion gang bangers.

Gang graffiti, drug dealing, violent beat ins/outs- another set of reasons to hate us.


It sickens me that these scum bags dishonor the others in the service.

Certainly an eye opener to me. I know the UK police have a back patch and military have 'The Patriots MC', BUT they are not (as far as I am aware) in the HA league.
To see HA logos on tanks in Iraq! Boy, that is strange.
Different contries treat the back patchers differently. In the UK last year we had a top policeman praise an HA guy as an 'upstanding member of the community', he worked for HD in London and was shot while riding from a bike event. I can not see Canadian police describe HA members that way.

Notice that the areas in the U.S. where a motorcycle is least likely to be stolen are all under snow and ice for 5 months of the year?

Hmm, Oxnard/Ventura ranks #80 in the Least Likely to be Crashed category and we keep our snow up in the mountains where it belongs.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Darn.......
Look at OHIO especially Columbus-followed by Cleveland......

HUGE per capita bike ownership (top 3 I think by state) and fewest accidents??????????

I woulda never guessed it by the local driving habits

I guess when you are the best of the worst that's cool too???
