but either way, im going towards your way for some classes. so i can get my confidence back.. I really dont feel so confident on a bike at the moment, so how much would this class run me, by any chance do i get a MH discount..loll

not out there, i would bet 99% of these accidents are avoidable. it's the riders that make it dangerous.

My cup is half full yours is half empty...

This happens every year, I hate this time of year...

With people buying new bikes in record numbers and not going through proper training it will happen more.

Maybe there should be a mandate that people take MSF before they can remove a bike from the lot. I doubt this thread will affect anyone other than the people who's names are on the list or the people who cared about the names on the list.

Focus on the other threads new riders, the ones with safe riding tips. There are quiet a few of them on MH and other forums. Take MSF too, you will learn to be safer.

New riders can me more than a statistic.

Not everything is avoidable, I believe there are paths we take that cross other paths and that will change your live forever.

then there's that whole riding at a reasonable speed to be able to see the gravel and adjust for it.

which would mean he was riding too fast for conditions. he crashed right? what would the ticket have been? failure to control vehicle.

yup, 1x, similar to yours in a sense, i think it was either radiator fluid or slippery cold paint strip. but in the end it was my fault for not recognizing it and riding too fast for conditions. runnin w/ teh squid crews out of JCI.
