Crash… and Walk Away With a Bruised Ego

Dress for the crash. That means you should always wear a DOT helmet, protective jacket, good pants, gloves and sturdy boots.

A friend who wishes to remain anonymous recently went down. One moment he looked away and next thing you know the car in front of him stopped short. My friend laid the bike down and slid across the pavement… bike slid too and came to rest under the car. Thanks to my friend’s helmet and leather jacket the worst bruise was to the ego. He got up and spent the rest of the weekend riding his scuffed motorcycle. As far as crashes go, this is a happy ending!

Keep a safe following distance, practice your emergency swerving and braking, wear your protective gear.
