Motorcylce Rider Struck By Lightening on his Helmet riding his Harley Dies


This sounds like one of those times when you have to say "your time is up'. What are the odds that you're a re going to get stuck by lightening riding a motorcycle? Well there are NOT 0% based on this Washington Post article. "Since 2016, there have been 10 motorcycle-related lightning deaths, John Jensenius of the National Lightning Safety Council said, although only 10 percent of people struck by lightning are killed. (In several of the 10 cases, Jensenius noted that the rider was not on the bike when he or she was struck.)

Over the last three decades, the United States has averaged 43 lightning deaths annually, according to the National Weather Service’s Storm Data. More recently, since 2009, the average has dropped to 27, making the odds of being struck in a given year 1 in more than 1.2 million.
