Got the range OIC duty on a Friday night again. Listening to Handel and reading the pdf download on a motorcycle crash study conducted by GB in 2004. Why? Well, other than the fact that I'm a total geek and consumed with motorcycle safety issues... Wait, where was I? Oh yes, the motorcycle crash study, so googleing motorcycle causation factors, could not find a single comprehensive study by the U.S. online, but came across this little gem
So far, no big surprises, mostly confirmation, which has gotta be a good thing, I must be doing something right. Just got started though. If you down load the pdf go to the back page and look at their countermeasures page, so you can get something to make your ride safer right away, and then you can go back to wading through the stats. Currently on page 8. If you do decide to read, keep in mind they drive on the left side of the road, so a recommendation like look twice at an intersection to your right because that is where you will encounter danger first... Well you can see the transposition. From what I gather the American study recently commissioned by NITSA is stalled, something about Oklahoma State University not getting enough funding... The Brit study is 64 pages long, I'll keep you posted if I come across any earth shattering news.
