    Motorcycle fatalities decreased 29.6 percent from 560 in 2008 to 394 in 2009. The 2009 decline is the first since 1998, marking the end to an 11-year, 175 percent increase.

    Total motorcycle registrations decreased 1.8 percent from 824,244 in 2008 to 809,129 in 2009. (DMV)

    Motorcycle fatalities per 100,000 motorcycle registrations fell dramatically from 68 in 2008 to 49 in 2009. This rate had been relatively steady, averaging 68 from 2005 through 2008.

    The percentage of motorcycle operators killed with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.08 or greater decreased from 27 percent in 2008 to 23 percent in 2009.**

    The percentage of motorcycle operators killed that were improperly licensed decreased from 37 percent in 2008 to 32 percent in 2009.
