Here's a quick story and video by Molly Waldron of ktnv.com from the Las Vegas area that could wake you up a bit. It describes a couple of typical motorcycle accidents and then provides a video interview with an MSF instructor. Here's an excerpt:
"It's spring, and a perfect time for Victor 'Doc' Moss to take a ride on his motorcycle. He's been riding for more than 40 years, and has never had an accident. 'I've never been down and I don't say I've never been down because of luck,' said Moss. 'After a half-million miles, it's because I'm thinking 'what do I need to do to stay alive in this?' Moss is a riding instructor, so safety is a priority for him. 'Motorcycles have certain inherent risks that are greater than a car, and if you don't understand those and how this machine works, you're putting yourself in danger,' Moss said." -- Molly Waldron, ktnv.comNow, read the article and watch the video.
