White lining - surprising safety stats

Do you white line? Its not legal in my state so I don't.
I see the sport bike riders do it a lot here on surface streets.
Fear of retaliation also keeps me from white lining.
The report at the link compares frequency of accidents for white line riders compared to
all motorcycle riders.
For example, white liners are less likely to get rear ended, but they are more
likely to rear end a car.

They must have some wild slow motion wrecks as they are tight as sardines, humming down the street at 7 miles an hour, light to light.
I'd also be in a full face respirator.
No I'd live that way again, myself.
