I thought I would share a well written safety article that appeared on another forum. It was written by DataDan a few years ago, who I think occasionally posts here, but I don't remember seeing this one here. I'll make no claims for the many replies to that article, but the original article is worth reading:

Great article Scott. Thanks for the link. My Son-in-Law just purchased a GS. I'll make sure he reads it.

I agree, this is a very interesting article. I have a habit of watching those motorcycle crash compilations on You Tube and excessive motorcycle speed appears to me to be a common factor. I would also be interested in knowing what factor alcohol use plays. Studies that I have read show it to be an additional factor quite often.

Motorcyclists who don't know how to brake properly also contribute to the statistics.
