From: Vince Hancock <[email protected]> Subject: Re: Theft Statistics ~WARNING: nerd at work! Ok, I chew statistics for a living so I had to take a bite out of this! The raw number of thefts is instructive only to a certain point. California has the highest population of any state so it would stand to reason that an 'average' ratio of MC thefts would put them at the top. With a little Google help, I found a listing of Motorcyle registrations by state (private only, excluded public-owned MC, like cops). I then did a simple ratio of bike thefts per bikes registered. Here's the 25 states in the Roadbike mag, in order by theft rate: Statethefts per MC registration And it is thefts per 1000 bikes registered.
COLORADO 22.6
OHIO 20.1
