Crashes

Unfortunately, crashes are a significant reality for motorcyclists.  The good news is most crashes are our fault.  In Washington, 75% of fatalities were riders in a curve, with no other vehicles involved, which means they had complete control over the situation.  For off-road riders, nearly all crashes are caused by the rider.  Topics discussed in this episode are 1) Being in a position to take care of yourself, 2) How to reduce injury in crashes by adjusting your attitude and practicing on dirt bikes.  Website: brettkacs.com
