Current GOAL

This coin is sent out to help raise awareness of motorcyles on the roadway, here are some tips for motorcyclists-

Don't assume that you are visible to a driver. As a motorcyclist, it is your responsibility to make your presence known to the driver.

Select and wear an appropriate helmet with retroreflective materials. Wear bright, contrasting protective clothing. If you choose darker clothing, wear a fluorescent vest.

23 states require that the headlight be on while the motorcycle is on the highway. Use high beams rather than low beams and consider using a modulating headlight if your state allows it.

Proper lane position is important to being seen and for protecting your riding space. If you can see the driver in the side-view mirror, the driver can see you. Don't "hide" in the driver's blind spot!

Clearly, communicate your intentions by signaling appropriately. Let the driver know what you intend to do.

About This Item

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.

Make sure the other motorists can see YOU!

We can get this message out to more people if YOU help! Release a coin of your own.

    Benben really liked this coin. I told him a quick synopsis of Sputnik and he said, "cool". The kids and I will review the bike safety options.

    Cool a puzzle cache with a geocoin in it. Could not resist that.

    However, a little sad. Water got into "Into the Wild..and Out [RST2]". Found tarnish on the gold portions of the geocoin. The geocoin and its accompanying paper work were in a small baggie, but water got into that also. Even the laminated tag was all wet and coming apart.

    Fortunately, all of the paper work can still be read. My wife and I, very carefully unfolded the folded up sheet and it can still be read also. Computers is what I do, and before I pass this geocoin on, it will have new paper work reprinted and the newly printed tag re-laminated.

    Also, I have managed to get most of the tarnish off of the coin itself, but not all of it. But, I have not given up on that either, I hop to have it looking as good as new before I pass it on. I will give it my best shot, anyway.
