Just about every month the local BMW Dealer holds a safety related program that anyone can attend. I just received an E-Mail alerting me to an upcoming program for Adventure or Dual Sport riders that looks particularly interesting, http://myemail.constantcontact.com/...=DKkVUGo0kfo

"Thursday June 13 from 6pm to 8pm
Puget Sound Safety Presentation
Riding the Discovery Routes

Join us Thursday evening, June 13 from 6pm until 8pm as Big Twin Motorcycles hosts a great presentation by members of the Puget Sound Safety Off Road motorcycle training organization (see the sidebar for info on PSSOR). The presenters will be on their way home from riding the Colorado Discovery Route and will have some great stories and valuable tips on the Discovery Routes and adventure riding in general. A unique component of this presentation is that the team is comprised of 2 very experienced riders and 2 who are relatively new to dual sport riding. This will give an extremely rounded picture of the challenges faced by the individual riders and how the obstacles were overcome by riders with very divergent skill levels.

This educational and entertaining event is provided to the riding community free of charge by Big Twin Motorcycles. Riders of all brands, skill levels and interests are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The presentation will last approximately 1 hour and will be followed by a 1 hour question and answer session. Come armed with your questions about all aspects of adventure riding, including camping, riding gear, techniques, routes and more.

Complimentary refreshments will be served."

What safety related programs are being hosted by dealers in your area? If you are aware of any, you might include mention, a link, and/or some words about them here.

A & S BMW/Ducati/Triumph in Roseville puts on things like that. The only ones I've attended were on first aid for motorcycle riders, how to change a flat tire on the trail, and a talk by Chris Scott about his 30 years of riding through the Sahara.

They have presentations about once a month, but I miss most of them.

Martin Motorsports in Boyertown, PA hosts similar events, mostly over the winter and early spring.

They have had the MSF "seasoned Rider" presentation, a seminar on suspension set-up, a similar "Adventure Tour" presentation, basic motorcycle maintenance and some others I can't recall.

In my opinion, these things are a great way to keep your head in the game during the cold and dark winter months and they also provide showroom traffic for the dealer during an otherwise dead time of the year.

This dealer also does a lot of other outreach to the local riding community. They sponsor a Triumph RAT group, a Star rider's group a riding group geared toward sport bike riders and a scooter rider's group. They also run what they call the "Modern Classics" bike show in the beginning of March.

I think more dealers should run these type events. I have found, however, that while some are advertised as "Safety" related, only the one that used the MSF curriculum was "all about" safety. The rest simply had a few bits regarding safety thrown in.
