    Yeh, who cares about safe riding anyway. What fun could not crashing be?

    Smile New From MotoSafe

    Last month, MotoSafe thought about the benefits of riding smoothly, managing the weight-shifts that occur as we speed up, slow down and change direction. ÔÇÿRiding SmoothlyÔÇÖ is often talked up wherever riders gather. After a brisk ride through some entertaining, hilly roads, followed by a stint on the Interstate and five miles in big-city traffic, Steady Stan and Sam Smooth start in on a couple of burgers at the end of the dayÔÇÖs ride.

    New from MotoSafe

    Mark Twain once observed; ÔÇ£Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it!ÔÇØ LetÔÇÖs at least talk about weather, and see if we can find some things to do about it, too.

    CliffsNotes on MotoSafe

    On school campuses throughout the world, many backpacks have one or more of the ubiquitous yellow-and-black CliffsNotes study guides tucked inside. You probably picked up a few, didnÔÇÖt you! CliffsNotes are a series of student study guides that present and explain literary and other works, summarized in pamphlet form. Endorsers say the guides help readers understand complex works, while detractors say they let students avoid even reading them. Whichever position you may take, itÔÇÖs clear that CliffsNotes summaries have increased learning, to some depth, for millions of students. Can we learn something about safer riding from this cultural icon?

    Training and Educational Resources

    January is almost toast, and February, 'The cruelest month,' will take up an extra day this year. For most riders, March bring some hope. Now might be the time to take a look at some skill-refreshment and self-renewal opportunities for the spring. Check out the Training Resources section (right side of the page, click on the link) at MotoSafe. www.moto-safe.com

    Nothing personal, Roger. I find you to be an excellent educator and able to present your ideas with insight and well-ordered methodology. All who seek improvement should peruse this new endeavor.

    But after 3+ decades as an LEO, where I had no choice but to rush to every domestic dispute, tavern disturbance, street brawl, ambush, riot and slug-fest in the ER's, I now pick my battles.

    Odd paradox that given our club demographic, there is such contempt towards formalized instruction of motorcycle operation.

    Sitting this one out for now.

    Ride safe and as always..... "Mind your surroundings!"

    No Worries

    Still, if ever you get a bee in your bonnet, send your thoughts in for the print version. You do a good job of presenting concepts - and THANX for carrying the Touring Tips torch so well...

    I always thought it strange that no permanent forum topic header "Motorcycle Safety" has been put in place..

    "Motocycle Safety"

    Yeah, that could be done; I've proposed such to the forum gurus, but it never went anywhere. In any event, I would prefer a topic that included 'FUN,' and 'PROFICIENCY' as well as 'SAFETY.' The subject of 'SAFETY' often is perceived as a bunch of safety-crats yelling, "Slow down, and be sure not to have any real fun!" MotoSafe's theme IS:

    Fun
    Proficiency
    Risk-reduction

    Thanx for the input...
