Straight to the point with our online poll. Falling off – who's been doing it and how much? There's two out of five of you keeping it shiny side up – according to statistics from the Thai Motorcycle Manufacturing Association 40 percent of you have not fallen of in the past three years.

On the other hand, one in three have been off more than ten times. Eak! There must be a few mirror off-road spills and trackday slides in there methings. Just under a fifth have had one spill. And nearly ten percent have had two or three mishaps.

So lets see if how the percentage will look with our own poll....

  •  Never
  •  Once
  •  Twice
  •  Three times
  •  Four times
  •  Five times
  •  More than 6 times

Everyone goes down sooner or later.

I drive about 100,000 per year, more than most, and it's been a few years since the last time. A quick flat front tire on a Tiger CX going down Highway 1 at speed

It's interesting to see how the figure of an official research can differ from input on a motorcycle forum...

In the official statistics which was based on insurance and dealer information about 60 percent of all motorcycle riders fall one time or another. Statistics on our forum show that most of you never have fallen with the motorcycle...

The average number of crashes, according to the poll, in a 3 year periode is 0.788785. The ratio of people who crashed versus the people answered is 306 / 1070 ~ 0,28. I.e. you will have approximately a 28% chance of crashing in any 3 year periode. In two periodes (6 years), this inflates to ~49% and in three periodes (9 years) it's up to 64%. In four periodes (12 years) you have a chance of crashing of ~81%. According to the poll ofc. Assuming people driver bikes for about 10 years when/if they give it up, the chance of crashing, according to the poll is somewhere between 64% and 81% -- even higher than the insurance and dealer information.
