Current GOAL

All of us who drive cars and trucks today need to ask ourselves; How Can I Become More Aware of Motorcyclists?

There are many, many ways that we can take the responsibilty to become more aware of motorcycles on the road. Some of the best ways are:

About This Item

Todie's Wild Ride

Respect the motorcyclist: Remember the motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the privileges of any vehicle on the roadway. Give the motorcyclist a full lane of travel.

Look out: Look for the motorcyclist at intersections, when a motorcyclist may be making a left turn, and on the highway, when a motorcyclist may be changing lanes. Clearly signal your intentions.

Anticipate a motorcyclist's maneuver: Obstructions that you do not notice may be deadly for a motorcyclist. Predict evasive actions.

Allow plenty of space: Don't follow a motorcycle too closely. Allow enough room for the motorcyclist to take evasive actions.

Todie's Wild Ride coins are being released all over the country and the world to promote Biker Awareness. They are released in loving memory of Todie Phillips of Manitou Beach, Michigan--Tod of Team Rod and Tod w/KAboom...the Cachestalkers. Tod died in a tragic motorcycle accident on August 12, 2008 when a truck turned in front of him and he tried to avoid it. Even though Tod was wearing a novelty helmet that wasn't DOT approved when he died, this accident was preventable if the truck driver had been paying attention.

Not sure who has had this up to this point, and why no one has logged anything about this coin up to this point, but we pulled this coin from geocache GC1CFM4 - "Quantum Leap" cache north of Columbus Ohio. We will pass this along to another cache and hopefully people will start logging this coin correctly! :)

This was an interesting coin, because most of the time when I come into contact with motorcyclists (and even bicyclists), they are driving/riding erratically in the first place, swerving in and out of cars, riding up the shoulders, cutting cars off because they want to hurry and turn before the car(s) in front of them, going much faster than the speed limit, etc. For me honestly, it gets annoying to constantly be told to "watch out for motorcycles and their safety" when the drivers of those motorcycles themselves aren't worrying about their own personal safety! Don't get me wrong, I have seen quite a few motorcyclists who are driving/riding like responsible people, but for the most part, there is much left to be desired for many of the motorcycle "ninjas" riding around these days who think they are stars in a stunt movie and are driving/riding like complete idiots with no sense, and it's even worse at night when they come speeding up on you and zoom past you like your sitting still! It's a two way street folks, if motorcyclists (and bicyclists as well) want other drivers to watch out for their safety, they also need to be driving/riding responsibly and watching out for the safety of not just themselves and their passengers, but also for the motorists around them, all of the safety tips listed here motorcyclists should be following as well, use your turn signals, anticipate the drivers around you, etc, you don't own the road either! Drive like a responsible driver, then there is no need to be having to watch over your shoulder wondering if the next driver is going to hit you, just because your riding a motorcycle does not mean that the rules for the roads (and the courtesies of the road as well) don't apply to you as well, slow down and drive with some sense, you'll eventually get there just like the rest of us!! TFTC!
