From our friends at Best Rest Products - should the lead rider be in the right portion of the lane?
They make a very compelling case - watch the video and see for yourself. What do you think? Should we teach this as an option in rider training classes and DMV Motorcycle Manuals?

Whether it’s your arms, legs, feet, hands, head, or face – our bodies don’t hold up very well against the asphalt. Please gear up – even when it’s hot. The asphalt doesn’t get any more forgiving in the summer months.
Please like and share with your friends who ride.
Ride Safe, folks! ^Ax

On my way home from the Iowa Motorcycle Safety Forum. Great visit with the Iowa team and I thank them very much for their hospitality! I did two presentations - "The Lottery and The Chosen One" and "FEAR" and we had some great discussions after each. Both were about what goes on inside our heads and how we can use it to our advantage while riding. I'll write up some of it and post it at RideMoreCrashLess.com in the next few weeks. Iowa was great, but it'll be good to be home. ~Ax

Hövding bicycle helmet (European). Fascinating new technology! The video is about 7 minutes long, but worth it.
