A lot of older riders are also out of shape and fail to exercise. Exercising would help with stamina and alertness.

Newer (and older) riders will take the MSF course but will never go back and practice their slow turning so they really don't have as much control of their bikes as they should.

And yes there's always the story of the new rider that starts out on an 1800 and wrecks it the first week (happened last month). Too much bike too quickly.

I think people dying and that "alcohol was involved" is way to ambiguous to conclude that alcohol alone made the crash happen.

Personally, I think that fatigue plays a far larger role in crashes and is rarely ever addressed. In fact, I think the MSF doesn’t focus on the effects of rider fatigue enough.

This coupled with the ages in riders in addition to alcohol is probably a more accurate cause for a crash.
