Motorcyclists all over the world are subject to so much risk compared to car drivers. Main reasons attributing to the dangers of motorcycle-driving are: lesser stability as motorcycle is so much lighter compared with the weight of cars which provides more stability on the road and decreased over-all protection as drivers as openly exposed on the road. Additional factor is the high rate of speed which only a motorcycle can achieve compare with cars and trucks on the road. It is true that speed is a killer.
