Current GOAL

This coin is being released to help raise awareness of motorcycle safety....Why, you ask??

Over two-thirds of car-motorcycle crashes are caused by drivers, not by motorcyclists. The driver either does not see the oncoming motorcyclist at all or does not see the motorcyclist in time to avoid a crash.

What can you do???

About This Item

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.

This coin is in memory of Todie Phillips of Manitou Beach, MI. He passed away August 12 2008 as a result of a motorcycle accident, he was only 49 years old.

    Found this one in a very rural western Minnesota cache, so I decided to rescue it and get it moving down the road. Great coin and cause. Thanks for placing it.

    Thank you for the tips r/t motorcycle saftey. They were a great refresher before spring, esp since there are many riders here in the midwest. I also encourage motorcyclists to be safe - wear your helmet, please; being a nurse I've seen the dark side of motorcycle accidents. Will move this great travel bug along soon to spread the word :)
