  2. The crash survivor's dilemma: Should I continue to ride?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I'm faced with a pretty serious dilemma, fellow bikers. Please give me your opinion on this matter. If you don't want to read all of it, then simply scroll the bottom and read the last two questions. On September 29th, I was involved in a life-changing motorcycle accident. I was in the hospital...
  3. People suck (don't know what else to title this)

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    My daughter and I were riding to a friends house about an hour away along a long 55mph country road today and I got stuck behind a bunch of cars just stopped in the road. Being in a hurry, I pulled onto the shoulder to go around them. As soon as I got on the shoulder I saw that a motorcyclist...
  4. How many people have not crashed, wrecked or fallen.

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I couldn't find a thread in this forum about this and am curious. Reading through the threads I read about all the "incidents" people have and for a new rider it makes it kinda nervewracking to start out. I am wondering how many people, through skill, luck or actually listening to the MSF...

    First Bike / New Rider

  9. Motorcycle Crash Causation Study

    Motorcycle Training, Safety, and Riding Techniques
    The last motorcycle crash causation study, the Hurt Report was done in 1981. It led to many benefits for bikers, including improved training courses and bike improvements, and the rate of fatal crashes went down in the years up to the mid-90s. The replacement study was announced in October...
  10. What was your worst accident, and how could it have been avoided?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    Haven't gotten my first bike yet - doing some reading and preparation before I even start the MSF course. But I'm curious to hear about some of your worst spills (even if your worst wasn't horrible). What happened? Whose fault was it? Was it preventable by you (regardless of whose fault it...
