Training for Actual Motorcycling

David Hough recently posted an excellent article about the purpose of motorcycle training, “Situational Awareness.” I strongly recommend reading the article and the concepts he’s presenting.

  1. Wow, that is good.

    When I was a youngster my dad used to tell me "there is no such thing as an accident". Having been in multiple accidents (all cars), a few of which where I was a passenger, I vehemently disagreed with him. He held firm.

    It wasn't until I after started riding and got a few years experience that I realized how right he was.

    Ever since I was teaching the MSF course I've always told beginners that if you crash, it's your fault.

    Trying to impress on people that safe motorcycling is more a mental than physical skill is tough.

Disagree? Bring it on. Have more to add? Feel free to set me straight.(Spam goes straight to trash and is never read.) Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't do a great job of figuring out which Anonymous commenters are actually real people, not Russians or Chinese spammers, so most Anonymous stuff ends up in the Spam filter and I usually delete it without looking to see if there are any real people who are afraid of using their own ID.
