This is a blog about slightly safer motorcycling. Bikesafer.com is a collection of links for the practical biker focused on motorcycle safety. It looks at riding risks as a hierarchy, with graphic tools and hundreds of sensibly linked articles on bike safety.
Bikesafer.com has, from its inception, been a supporter of the section 5511 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), the new crash causation study. Yesterday, DOT announced the approval of the study, which will probably take about four years to complete. Approximately 20,000 bikers died while waiting for the study to get to this point, probably more than another 20,000 will die before it's done, and don't even start on the almost one million other casualties.
