Things are about to change for the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) Motorcycle Operator Safety Training (MOST) Program. However, these changes are going to take Colorado’s motorcycle safety to a new level. With an added level of convenience and modern technology, it’s going to be even easier to ride safe here in Colorado.
Colorado Has a New Way to Stay Safe On Motorcycles
Did you know that CDOT was taking bids to find a new management company for its MOST Program? There were three candidates vying for the contract, but the company that won has a long history of motorcycle safety. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) will now be managing CDOT’s motorcycle safety courses.
MSF has over 50 years combined experience handling motorcyclist safety educational programs. It already manages programs in other states across the country, and its RiderCourse curriculum is used in classes in every state. The organization is so well recognized, it is sponsored by BMW, BRP, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Piaggio, Polaris, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha.
MSF will bring its latest RiderCourse lessons and exercises to the MOST Program while also rolling out the RiderCourse Enrollment System—aka RES. This new enrollment system will allow Colorado riders to go online to schedule a class in any MOST-approved course. The online system will also streamline reporting, administration and database management for MOST, which will save the state money on administration costs.
Will this new, streamlined version of Colorado’s motorcycle safety training be enough to keep more bikers out of the hospital? Do you think the online features are a big plus?
