    • MOTORCYCLE PARTS AND SEAT RECALLS 80 percent of all motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclist. The number of motorcyclists 45 and older killed in crashes nearly quadrupled from 2001 to 2005. Oddly, the number of crashes among younger motorcyclists remains steady. More Information About Motor Cycle Accidents. Why are there so many motorcycle accidents with baby boomer motorcycle drivers? Perhaps baby boomers have always lived life in the fast lane as radical risk takers and may not be taking the precautions they should. Perhaps, baby boom- ers are slower to react; more impaired from alcohol and prescription drugs; and not as physically fi t as they once were.

    • ALCOHOL IMPAIRS A MOTORCYCLIST’S ABILITY Alcohol greatly impairs a motorcyclist’s ability to search for and evaluate haz- ards that might lead to trouble. Even one beer can impair your vision, your decision-making ability, and definitely slow down to dull your coordination-re- action time. Motorcyclists should never feel mentally relaxed. A mind without alcohol will be astute and acutely aware of what’s going on and how to cir- cumvent any emergencies. Drinking may give motorcyclists a false sense of bravado but without the judgment to back it up. No one advocates drinking and driving but even though there are more pas- senger vehicles on the road, motorcyclists have the highest percentage of driving while intoxicated.

    • BMW R1200c BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE Vehicle description: motorcycles. The seat backrest can be adjusted to two positions, horizontal or vertical. In the horizontal position, the backrest acts as a seat cushion for a rear passenger. In the vertical position, it is used as a backrest for the driver. It is possible for the leaf spring mounting bracket, if overloaded with the backrest in the vertical position, to crack or break. Danger: If the bracket were to break, the backrest would detach from its mount, causing the driver to lose his balance, increasing the risk of a crash.
