The death and serious injury of adolescent motorcyclists is a major public health problem.
Effective preventive strategies depend on knowledge about target populations.
The attitudes and patterns of exposure to motorcycling of 73013 year old New Zealand adolescents are described.
Fifty-two per cent could ride a motorcycle, a further 13% intended to learn, 22% had driven on-road, and 60% had ridden as pillion passengers on-road.
Significantly more males than females were riders (P<0.001) and had ridden as pillion passengers (P<0.05).
