I agree with your point in theory, but in practice for a simple poll like this it is better to keep it simple. It is just to get a general idea of how accident prone we are here on ADV Rider.

Observation of those around me suggests that a few people are involved in quite a few accidents, while a large number seldom, crash, if ever.

Right now I work at a university where at least 99% of the students and probably half the staff ride motorcycles daily....... and not an ATGATT among them. I see the odd one turn up on campus a bit bandaged up, but not often. However it does tend to be the same few more than once.
