Something we should all do before a ride...

Alright guys, I keep seeing a troubling pattern. I know there is a sticky somewhere else for this but I want to pass something along. I work alot of motorcycle wrecks near where I live and I have some advice. I know keeping a In-Case-of-Emergency or ICE card in your wallet may be unlikely and will probably not happen. Something I do with people I ride with that I may not know very well is exchange Names and Numbers before a ride, just in case I go down, so they know who to call.

As with any forum, on MotoHouston you may not really know the people your riding with very well. Please try and swap REAL names with a couple of people before the ride. When someone is about to go into shock and we are trying our best to keep them alert, one of the best things that can be done is to talk to them, stating their REAL name when trying to get them to respond. Many forum usernames are just something that was picked out that somehow relates to you but it is not as important to you as your REAL name. Someone's REAL name is something they have responded to ALL of their life, so it is a much better anchor to keep them alert.

I just wanted to try and help some fellow riders out. When someone goes down, it doesn't help to give their screen name and it can actually be confusing. Something as simple as a REAL name and a phone number can make a difference, because at that point we have a name to go with in conversation with the patient and we also have someone to call which can give more info. When it comes down to it yall can do what you want but I always exchange some very basic info before I ride, Just In Case...

Same from me. Really appreciate alertness that was displayed in getting there. As for Kem, he's still in surgery and probably will not know more until tomorrow.

Good advice, I have a little address sticker on the outside of my Shoei X-12, and several on my bike....thanks! Maybe we need dog tags, like my dad wore in Europe in 1944-5...

I have an ICE contact in my phone that has my moms number, my brothers number, and my roommate who knows how to contact both of them. granted having my moms number does no good as she is 2k miles away, its best they are told.
