It is also worth pointing out that braking distance is also the square of the speed. Around here we have two things deer and idiot drivers. I'm old enough that I heal slowly so I only ride on the track.' END quote

Douglas, I don't believe you have figured this out rationally. You say before this quote that the superior braking of the MC compensates the superior speed impact devastation.

NO Way! The moped's inferior braking at 30mph is nearly as good as a much heavier MC at 50 mph,although what MC just runs 50 mph routinely?

A moped can stop really quickly in a 30mph panic stop, and even if it doesn't stop,say just gets down to 15mph, the impact is WAY less than an MC.

Not convinced at all. Use your math to show these young ones how much HARDER you impact at 60mph than at 40mph. Or even 50mph. They can then see why they shouldn't try to make their moped run as fast as they can.

I don't think they teach physics in high school anymore.
