Allan Kirk, of the MegaRider organisation, was in his dentist's waiting
rooms a while ago and got talking to a lady who saw his riding
gear and started telling him about how her son had just had a
crash on his motorcycle, and had broken his finger. "But",
she said, "he says he wouldn't be alive now if it wasn't
for what the motorcycle people taught him."
Allan grinned. He and his instructors were the "motorcycle
people" her son had been talking about.
Throughout the years, Allan and his team have taught thousands
of riders riding survival skills.
People he doesn't recognise come up to him in the street,
shake his hand and say, "Thanks, you save my life".
And when Allan looks blank, they say "I went through
your course X years ago and, boy, some of the things I learned
there have saved my life a few times."
Of course, that was before the Internet. Now they email him
"Thank You... For teaching Me... How to Survive... Out

and broke my leg. I was able to maintain control of the bike
and come to a safe, controlled stop because I knew what to do.

me and have many times use it to improve my riding skills. There
have been occasions when I have had to use it to prevent a serious
accident (not my fault I might add) and fortunately no one seriously

help you understand the best actions to take in a crash situation
to neutralize it.
