Just a coincidence?

Has anyone taken any notice of the tyres on bikes at are being auctioned off (stat write offs)?
I have - mainly pilot roads. Hmmmmmmm interesting.

Stands to reason that the majority of people are lemmings so they're the most popular and likely to be fitted at a higher frequency rate to written off bikes than anything else. 
I'm no fan but are you suggesting they cause crashes?

maybe the hype of unbeatable wet grip - people thinking hey lets try this out (insert family feude "wrong answer" bow bow noise)
I knew a bloke once who said his new tyres were so great in the wet that he could give it the beans off the lights in the wet and get the front wheel up. Astounding that people actually try that out.
