The reconstruction of motorcycle accidents requires special consideration of the factors involved because of the unique handling characteristics of these vehicles, their weight disparity compared to other vehicles on the roadway, and the generally higher power to weight ratio. Most motorcycles have independent front and rear brakes, requiring careful assessment of skid marks when relying on this evidence to determine the vehicle speed. In addition, the smaller cross-sectional profile of motorcycles, when approaching, can make these vehicles less conspicuous.
