For Racers, Track Riders, Street Riders, Cruisers

If you are on 2 wheels this thread is for you and this was just an idea when I was sitting in the paddock. What we do on a motorcycle whether it be ride to work or hit turn 1 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). What we do is dangerous in alot of different aspects. This is something that I am researching because I was at the track alone yesterday with no riding buddy. Of course we all have friends there but when incorporating the risk we take people should know more than an emergency contact number. Im getting a sticker made for the back of my helmet with simple information such as my first name, any allergies,blood type,insurance info and contact number. I know that when I am laying unconscious on the side of the road or the track where have you I want to be transported with as little hesitation as possible. Please feel free to add your own imput on here as well.. But there are alot of riders out at the track that are by themselves traveling from a different city or a new guy in a group ride that doesnt know anybody. So please elaborate on this idea or suggestion to ensure the safety and well being of our fellow riders.If you think this is a good idea I will forward this to the track day organizations to notify there medical staff. Please keep this thread on topic

Just a couple of examples.

I dig the idea, it makes sense to have the ID easy to find. Of course theres always a chance it might get scratched off in a slide but still makes a lot of sense to have it there, easy for the medics to find. Maybe someday they can make it standard on all helmets and use RFID to be more specific about allergies and whatnot

There used to be a free service, (minus shipping), you got a plastic sleeve that stuck to your helmet, with an ID card with the info you wanted to put on it.


I forget what they call it, you might want to search for it on here.


It's a good idea.

I have Mil. dog tags and a red med tag with allergies and contact telephone numbers. Then I have the same info in my wallet and on my phone. Seems like this was just discussed a few weeks ago after someone went down and no one knew who to contact.

It was discussed a while back, I still think the dog tags are a great idea.

looking for a trackbike!!








find a different location

I like the general idea but have a few comments. 1. If your unconcious, there's a pretty good chance you smacked your head good and it will scratch off. 2.non-riders aka cops and gen public will see it on the helmet and generally think your a lunatic haulin and lookin for trouble. I like the dog tag idea but we need to make this common knowledge throughout the riding comm

The lower back of your helmet won't get scratched in a wreck.
It may not be seen either since every responder will want to lay you on your back.
Dog tag chains will break away

You could always tatoo the info on your forehead. I mean think how tough you will look to the chickas when they ask you about your blood type and stuff plus noone would ever forget your name what your name is.

standard dog tags will rip away without much trouble. They have been designed for and worn by the armed forces for a really long time and have not been an issue. I think the tensile load these things can take is about 10-20 lbs and would not do anything except give you a nice red line on your neck. Even if you wrap them in 550 cord to keep that nasty black oxide of your neck during showers you will still rip the chain before you get into trouble. My .02
