Motorcycle Study from Washington State

Nothing we don't already know but good for discussion:

http://www.dol.wa.gov/about/reports/mototaskforce.pdf

Scott
Sacramento CA
HDDC Posse

''03 Ducati ST4S with ABS - '12 KTM 500EXC - '19 BMW GS/A
(Jessica Focker's) '15 BMW S1000RR - '17 KTM 350EXC-F - '09 Yamaha XT250

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this."

Well the good news is more people are taking training. The bad news is the training does not appear to be working. There are two other numbers not attached to the report that would be helpful but are not there and they are,

Years on bike.

How many took ERC vs. those that did not

In related news a friend who also rides an LT lost it during a group ride on the 3rd, when he discovered a patch of gravel in the middle of a curve. He is OK, just bruised and shaken but his wife ended up with an ankle broken in two places and a bunch of broken toes. The bike is in the shop but they don't know if they will keep riding or not. Kinda sad if they don't. They went to CCR last year and had a ball.

I would guess it implies the rider did not stay in their lane, but I am only guessing.
