    Beard.
    To me that looks like Tony from Experience Motorcycles, Kingsland. Bike and his beard looks very familiar.

    Damn you and your logic Geoff! Still - The ads represent a welcome change of emphasis away from the normal 'Speed kills' drivel we've seen in the recent past. Nice MV Dragster in one of them too.

    Hahaha! Yep, sensible ads for grown-ups. Don't feel lectured to when watching them!

    Bloody old buggers...

    The group at greatest risk of a motorcycle accident in 2018 were actually men aged 45-59 - that is to say, the people who were aged 15-29 in 1988 are once again the highest risk group, despite being 30 years older.

    The older we get ... the better we were.

    Sounds right ...

    Well I am not sure what they are selling but I have decided to grow a beard.

    I saw the ad with the Ducati last night. Nicely done I thought. Not preachy and tastefully done to boot. Good job NZTA.

    Start on Monday. I'm not sure of the breadth of the role just yet. But lurking on here has given me lots of food for thought.

    Back in 1988 you were blissfully unaware of this as there was no social media and the Herald used to have actual news and articles.
    Would that age bracket also be the largest motorcycle ownership?
    If I was in the motorcycle industry I'd be worried about the next 10 years.
    I think the only electric vehicle I'll get is a mobility scooter....unless I get a job with NZ Post as their vehicles are kinda cool.
    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    What they don't tell you is that group has the highest population of riders.
    They're not more at risk, they simply represent the highest percentage of riders on the road by a fat margin.
    Great research Oatgo University, are you stupid, or deliberately trying to make one group look bad?

    Agreed. Most people riding these days are 40 plus, so its inevitable that the figures show them as the highest risk group.

    What would be interesting is the proportional analysis.

    Something that skews the figures is that the older guys ride bigger bikes, and spend more time on the open road. Crashes are more serious on the open road.

    That's a lot of words with no links, data or evidence?

    May I quote from the original Herald item? "You can access the original data here."
