Helmets l.jpg
HELMETS

  • Helmeted riders have up to a 73% lower fatality rate than non-helmeted riders.

  • Helmeted riders have up to an 85% reduced incidence of severe, serious, and critical injuries than non-helmeted riders.

  • Motorcycle helmets are 67% effective in preventing brain injuries.

  • Non-helmeted motorcyclists are over three times as likely to suffer a brain injury as were those who were helmeted.

Clothing designed for riding and conspicuity provides the best level of protection for the rider. Jacket has retro-reflective piping and pants are made of retro-reflective material.

Slide15 l.jpg

MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE

AROUND US

  • Motorcyclists are much harder to see than automobiles.

  • Motorcycles must obey all rules of the road.

  • Always be alert to your surroundings.

  • Expect the unexpected.



How safe is motorcycling17 l.jpg
HOW SAFE IS MOTORCYCLING?

  • Motorcycle fatalities represent 5% of all highway fatalities each year.

  • Just 2% of all registered vehicles in the United States are motorcycles.

  • The main reason for motorcycle fatalities is the motorcycle itself does not provide no protection in the crash.

  • 80% of motorcycles reported result in injury or death compared to 20% for automobiles.


The 2 second rule l.jpg
THE 2 SECOND RULE

  • The ‘2 Second Rule’ means that in staggered formation there is a ONE second spacing between each bike, thus a TWO second spacing between bikes in the same track.

  • The ‘2 Second Rule’ should constitute your fundamental safety margin while riding in a group if you use it as a minimum spacing distance.

    Note: This does not mean it is impossible to hit the guy ahead of you if he loses control of his bike.


Stopping distance factors l.jpg
STOPPING DISTANCE FACTORS

  • Other Bikers and Automobiles

  • Terrain and Obstacles

  • Wet Road Conditions

  • Gravity-Incline vs. Decline

  • Lane of Travel with other Bikes and Autos


Other drivers l.jpg
OTHER DRIVERS

  • When following a motorcycle double the 2’ Second Rule.

  • Motor vehicles and Motorcycles all share the same road.

  • Size Difference.

  • Different Vulnerabilities.

  • Double check mirrors and blind spots.

  • Some cyclists weave in and out of traffic

  • Danger may come at you from unexpected directions

  • Take care when turning right at intersections. Riders often move forward next to the motor vehicle when turning right.

MOTORCYCLE SAFETY

Always be careful of sand, dirt, loose gravel or poor road conditions,

especially when going around corners. One simple rule is as follows:

  • When turning corners remember to:

    • Slow down

    • Look through the corner

    • Lean into the turn

    • Roll on the throttle

Always Ride Defensively

More facts l.jpg
MORE FACTS

  • More than 80% of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclists.

  • Head injury is a leading cause of death and serious injury in motorcycle accidents, which is why helmets that meet or exceed federal safety standards should always be worn.

  • Research studies show that motorcycle helmets are 29% effective in preventing fatal injuries and 67% effective in preventing serious brain injury.
