According to federal information you are 35 times more likely to die in a motorcycle accident than in a car accident.
The probability of being seriously injured or killed in a motorcycle accident is higher than in car accidents for several reasons.

Additionally a motorcycle is much smaller and lighter than other vehicles they share the road with.
