Superbikes, Superboomers

Stat of the day, courtesy of the WSJ: Ultra-high performance sport motorcycles represent 10 percent of sales and 25 percent of motorcycle fatalities. Who’s buying these bikes? Baby boomers. Kids can’t afford them. Sure, young squids die on motorcycles. But a lot of middle aged folks are returning to bikes, can afford the best, and hop on after 20 years of not riding.

Apparently, teenagers aren’t the high-risk age group these days: their parents are.
