More middle aged former motorcyclist are returning to riding:

  • Between 2005 and 2007:

    • The number of motorcyclists 50 years of age or older increased by 11%.

    • The number of motorcyclists 49 years of age or younger decreased by 5%.

  • Part of this increase can be attributed to the return of the re-entry rider.
