Browsing through the LTO Website getting reference information to update the LTO Penalties and Fines information for this website. I came across an interesting set of statistics.
I was mildly surprised that the information was online and updated to boot, so that in itself was a minor miracle. But the information inside was an eye opener when it comes to the growth of the Motorcycle community.
The statistics for New MC registrants for the year 2005 was 585,482 nationwide. This is out of a TOTAL of 760,580 vehicles of ALL CLASSES and TYPES. Now this is a glaring 77% of all new vehicles registered nationwide. Now that’s a LOT of new MC’s on the road.
I knew the MC community was in for a boom as early as 2 years ago, but I guess the rise in gas prices and cost of living has affected a lot of people and greatly influences the shift towards the MC lifestyle.
