I tend to analyze every close call and my one crash (to this point) a lot. For anyone that will listen. Not sure how it would work in a club setting, but the individual sure needs to think it thru and analyze what happened. Yes I contributed to my own crash and have made adjustments to my riding style. Having hit a car followed by the pavement and several months of rehab, I do NOT want to go thru that again.
I think it's a great idea. Try it and see how it works. Maybe do a little at a time, so folks don;t get bored or overly annoyed by it. I think it's a great tool for learning. Maybe have a different member be the "focus" each time and let it develop into a group discussion for 5 - 10 minutes. Let them volunteer, since some folks may not be too willing to talk about it if it was very bad. If someone already is willing to talk, that would be a great person to start with. Keep it moderated and civil and calm and positive.
I'd be more than willing, if I were part of a club. I've "what ifffed" my crash to death, so to speak. All for someone to learn from my mistake.
Great idea; hope it works for you.
