As our students know: Karen & I were saved by GOOD GEAR – the same “stuff” that Brittany tells of and shows in this video.
My bike was totaled BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO RIDE (Thought I was “GREAT”, BEFORE the crash and BEFORE I ever took a course).
—-By the way: We Were NOT SPEEDING at the time.
—-Actually I was going approx. 25 mph when it happened: SINGLE VEHICLE CRASH IN A CURVE. —– Bet you didn’t know that 4 out of every 10 motorcycle DEATHS Happen In A CURVE, average speed is LESS THAN 30 mph, single vehicle, 2 miles from home!
My crash FIT MOST of these statistics! Not fun watching your bike flip end over end 4 times while you (and your lady) are rolling down the middle of the road! —- GEAR Was Mangled! We Were Fine. Wished my bike would have been so lucky!
Valuable lessons were learned then:
* Ride your OWN BIKE (soon after the crash, Karen took a course and learned to ride HER OWN BIKE.
* Get TRAINING Even If You THINK YOU KNOW HOW TO RIDE. (My professional studies show over 90% of ALL Riders out there ARE SERIOUSLY LACKING ADEQUATE SKILLS, JUDGMENT, Proper TRAINING.
*WEAR ALL THE PROPER GEAR EVERY TIME! (Unlike what MOST People Think, Proper gear actually makes the rider (and passenger) MORE COMFORTABLE – Not Less!
Come to our classes & Hear the details “of what I did wrong”. Ignorance May Be Blissful But It Also Can Be Deadly (or at least HURT & Cost BIG $$$).
