After reading all of the safety tips three times, I don't see the point of reading them all again on a regular basis. After I've forgotten a few, I'll make another pass. Same with the Proficient Motorcycling books.

I'm also curious as to who you are, asking these questions about the site. You've only been a member here for two weeks and more than half of your posts have been polls like this one.

Care to introduce yourself?

I've read all of the tips several times and I think I've even contributed to one or two. I still go back and re-read tips from time to time (like we all seem to re-read Proficient Motorcycling), but my principal reason for searching them any more is to point new users to information, frequently detailed answers to questions they have asked.

Ditto! In the process I revisit the material, which is a good thing, right?.

When I find an especially good post, I print it out and put it on the back of the toilet for those leisure reading times. Pretty much all the tips are there.

I love the randomly picked safety article. I find it a great way to review articles you may have skipped at first or just don't remember.

For me, the tips serve as a review process, help me relive the riding experience and be ready for the next one. My short commute to work offers me little in the way of building mileage / road experience so I am cognizant of my inexperience and review accordingly. The only time I would ever mention a tip to others is if I could word for word, apply the appropriate feedback from this site off the Safety Tips list... and even then I would encourage them to access it themselves to re-read and check out all the other tips.

I can understand the logic of someone who has a good memory, rides hundreds of miles a month, does the PLP regularly and commits the tip list to memory after 3 reads.... I'm sure that works for many. Of those that cannot or do not ride as regularly (pile on the miles), I think it is essential to cover these tips regularly as a supplement.

Kinesthetic learning is a important element in many physical activities and often times, for me to understand the nature of a process, I have to re-read it after experiencing it. Not all of the Tips mean that much to me until I understand the how's and why's. In these cases, reviewing the tips mean the difference between reading it and understanding / experiencing it. I think the term muscle memory is a good example of this type of learning process.

I first found this site & the tips back in July when my husband got a motorcycle after being off one for probably 15 years. I read a lot, but as a passenger (read back seat driver) with absolutely no experience much of what I tried to pass along was considered annoying. Now, however, I have my own motorcycle and have spent the last week or so reading every tip and many postings in the forum. Being able to find a specific tip again easily will be a great asset to the site...thanks for all the work.

That is, indeed, a very valuable piece of advice. Hubby shares his experiences with me but, I have learned to store some and forget many others...thanks again to all who contribute here for their help...Debby
