Re: BMW crash in NW Indiana

Hope they make a full & complete recovery. Yet another reason the wear some kind of emergency medical / ID information on your person, not in your gear or wallet, that can be lost or hard to find in case of an accident. If you are wearing it on your wrist, or around your neck, first responders can find it & use it to provide critical information to medical personal or law enforcement.

Re: BMW crash in NW Indiana

I saw a few riders wearing the ICE tags on their helmets at a tech session in Houston not long ago. Smart idea whose time has come.
Wrist bands as well.

Hope these riders come thru ok
My prayers with them

Re: BMW crash in NW Indiana

Have a friend that is a retired fire department paramedic. He told me to put a sticker on my helmet, both front & rear, saying" DO NOT REMOVE UNLESS EMT TRAINED". He had numerous calls involving a motorcycle accident, where the people who witnessed the accident, removed the victims helmet. This caused further neck & spinal cord damage.

Re: BMW crash in NW Indiana

I rode the RT through there, the same direction, yesterday at ~3PM. Nice open road east of mile marker 16. Traffic was light, as opposed to the weekend congestion.
I really hope that having the gear offers a lot in recovery.

Picked up a new rear tire on Sunday at Grand Rapids and just picked up new Olympia jacket and pants at Countryside. Just keepin' it safe... got a couple trips coming up in the next few weeks.

I agree. In season I do a lot of solo rides/trips.
What kinds of material are you making them from ? I was thinking of using a strip vinyl label maker, but would prefer something bigger-more visible.

Do you think it needs to be on both sides or front and back of helmet or all the above ?

Thanks

Labelmaker at work. Small type, like 1/4". Just enough if the person can understand English.
