There are those that have, and those that will.......if you ride enough.
Bull pucky....as long as we are talking on pavement.
I ride enough and for many years since the 60s.
The only on pavement drops were in winter on snow and ice...picked up the bike and rode on. If the weather was bad enough I sort of expected it.
I think it is very wrong to circulate the idea that an on road accident is inevitable.
There is luck of course ....riding a lot in animal turf ....I've not had close calls but what could have been had the animal done something different.
Near misses with cadgers ...sure - lots...even an ABS moment wth a cadger panic braking for a squirrel
...even the other day I was passing and another car pulled out oblivious..brakes on the KLR suck.....so does the horn.
I have dropped my bike at zero speed due to a mechanical failure but I don't count that as an accident. Just a tip over ( so common on ST1100s they have protective wings on them )
Clutch just failed at a bad moment stopped on a hill and trying to back around.
That was a fun ride home speed shifting a ST1100.
Lots of come offs off road and off pavement ...and I'd actually suggest that riding off pavement makes you a far better on pavement rider reducing accidents, ( unexpected gravel for instance )
But as the poll shows ....and there are many long term high mile riders here ....it is not inevitable and should not be circulated as being so. IMNSHO
