Poll Question:
This is another area I'm checking in correlation of things with crashes.

Let's use the definition of a crash as one requiring medical treatment or one where an insurance claim was made. If you feel one that doesn't meet this criteria yet was serious enough to include, feel free to.



Results:
I took a beginner rider training course and had a crash in the first 3,000 miles of riding   [7%] 5 votes 
I took a beginner rider training course and did not have a crash in the first 3,000 miles of riding   [64%] 47 votes 
I did not take a rider training course and had a crash in the first 3,000 miles of riding   [8%] 6 votes 
I did not take a rider training course and did not have a crash in the first 3,000 miles of riding.   [21%] 15 votes

This poll is starting to get to a point where it may have some statistical significance. Please take a minute and respond to it.

I voted thus: took the course, did not have a crash.

but... I did:
  • drop the bike once or twice (oh, OK then, maybe more than that it we're being specific here)

  • have a few very close calls

  • and, may very well have had a nasty accident had I not read the story about target fixation on this site

When I started this poll, I did it with the idea of getting a general idea if BRC is effective in preventing crashes. On the surface, it appears to be. The numbers are even big enough to start to assume statistical significance.

However, looking at the colors of the lines for members and non-members, it appears that participation in this forum is the factor that prevents crashes. (Look at the gold lines.)

Nice job, James.

Without a doubt, training must definitely lead to a reduction in crashes though it might not be statistically significant. However one death averted is more than enough for me which is why I am taking the ERC this month!
