posted on Tuesday September 27th, 2016
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) announced the release of a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) concerning traffic crashes and fatalities for 2015.  Of particular interest to motorcyclists is the fact that motorcycle fatalities rose 8.3 % between 2014 and 2015.  This report comes roughly four months after a similar report was issued by the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA) which predicted a 10% rise in motorcycle fatalities for 2015.  I have included links to both reports…

Most GPS systems allow you to keep track of your speed. As such, they can be used as evidence…

Unsurprisingly, the GHSA report did not merely provide facts.  It advocated a position that motorcycling is becoming increasingly dangerous, and that states need to implement restrictions on risky behavior responsible for…
