Please move this coin in any direction
you want as long as it stays in North America. This geocoin may very
well be the most important geocoin you will ever hold in your hand. The
reason I say that is because this geocoin is on a journey to remind people to be
aware of bikers that share the road with us and to give them a little extra room
on the road. Sadly, the man pictured on this geocoin (Tod) is no longer alive.
On August 12th, 2008 there was an accident that involved a truck and
Tod who was riding his motorcycle. Sadly Tod died as a result of that accident.
Now his family and friends are left behind to try and understand why a careless
lane change by a motorist took somebody they loved very much from them.
About This Item
This coin was designed and distributed by Tod's best
friend as a way to raise awareness of the need for more motorcycle awareness and
safety programs. Please remember that the bikers on the road don’t have nearly
as much protection as those of us in cars so please keep a vigilant eye out for
them and give them a little extra room. By doing those 2 simple things you help keep a similar tragedy from happening to another family.
If you’re a biker please wear an approved helmet to stay safe so
your family and friends won’t be forced to learn to live without you.
