The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) is one of the country’s most important resources for biker safety. It offers safety courses for new riders and advanced courses for experienced riders who want to develop their skills. Since 1973, MSF training courses have taught over six million riders about safe motorcycle practices. It turns 40 this year, and it expects to top seven million students.
“Over the last several decades, MSF has raised the bar in motorcyclist safety training and education,” MSF president Tim Buche said. He explained that MSF’s safety courses emphasize four basic principles:
- Fundamental skills (braking, steering)
- Perceptual skills (staying aware of your surroundings)
- Collision avoidance skills (responding to dangers)
- Behavioral aspects (understanding thought patterns, adopting the right mindset for riding)
If you are looking for ways to obtain a Colorado motorcycle license, you can enroll in and pass a motorcycle safety course sponsored by the MSF. You can also pass a skills test at a Department of Motor Vehicles office.
There is no telling how many motorcycle accidents and injuries the MSF has prevented over its 40 years in operation. Unfortunately, even the safest bikers can fall victim to serious motorcycle accidents because other drivers were not paying attention. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, talk to us. There is no charge, and you may able to recover compensation for your injury or loss. Call (615) 690-2080 today.
