What's the perceived danger vs real danger?
common sense tells me two things.
1. miles per fatality is going to be much higher for motorcycles
2. most motorcycle fatality s are single vehicle( i.e. riders fault) while most bicycle fatality's are auto/bike collision (may still be riders fault, but two vehicles are involved.
if you think commuting on a bicycle is safer than on a motorcycle you just aren't thinking
