The Ultimate Guide to Motorcycling in New York State (According to Facebook)

We are a personal injury law firm based in the Hudson Valley that has obtained one of the biggest motorcycle injury settlements in Ulster County history. We love being part of the local motorcycle community, and with some help from Facebook data, put together stats about New York State motorcyclists: how many there are, their political views, their favorite motorcycle brands, the most popular rides, and their most common interests.

Feel free to re-purpose this infographic, just make sure you link back to our page!

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another party, contact us for a free consultation right away at 845-600-0000. The best and often only way a motorcyclist can be reimbursed for their lost wages and/or medical expenses is bringing a lawsuit against the person and/or company that caused the injuries. We are the Kingston, NY-based motorcycle injury attorneys who have recovered one of the highest settlements in county history; we also have a satellite office in Poughkeepsie.
