In comparison to a regular passenger vehicle, motorcyclists lack the safety features that can prevent serious injuries. Motorcycle fatalities are 26 times higher than the number for cars. Even without another vehicle involved in the accident, motorcyclists can still sustain serious injuries in a solo crash.
While using proper safety features like antilocking brakes can reduce the risk of serious collisions, accidents are never predictable.
