The state of Wisconsin has been plagued by 102 motorcyclist fatalities this year, giving 2012 the state’s fourth highest death toll in the past 20 years. The Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety Program manager says that riders need to continuously hone their skills.

Nice weather could also be to blame for the sharp uptick.
