Current GOAL

This coin is being sent out to raise awareness of bikes on the road! Please remember that we on the motorcycles (or even the pedal bikes) have just as much right as anyone else, but MUCH less protection! Please check your mirrors before changing lanes, look both ways and pay closer attention when making a turn onto or off of a roadway, we might be there! It only takes one hurried move, one careless push of the gas. When you begin to pull out, if we are coming and see you, we must make a split-second decision...that decision could be life or death! Tod didn't hit anyone, the truck stopped before pulling all the way into his lane...this didn't matter as Tod had already committed himself to braking. Once committed, there's no way to stop the chain of events which will follow. Please don't make us commit, watch for us and help protect us as we travel.

About This Item

This coin is dedicated to the members of Team DNIF (Duties Not Including Flying). We had some close calls, but we always looked out for each other and made it back to ride another day. Ride Free or Die!

However, this coin is first and foremost in memory of Todie Phillips! Tod, 1/3 of Team Rod & Tod w/KAboom was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident when a motorist pulled into his lane unexpectedly. Tod (as we have surmised) likely locked his brakes and skidded sideways until he perceived he was safe to disengage the brake and resume. Unfortunately, when in a skid, bikes usually tend to skip if the brake is released (as I learned at the funeral services). Tod likely released the brake (just a speculation), the bike jumped and then grabbed before flipping several times...Tod rode it to the end! This accident was needless, the driver merely needed look and would have seen Tod there. This usually happens because of people being in a hurry. PLEASE take your time and help us arrive safely! PLEASE keep this coin moving to help spread the word of bike awareness!!

    This trackable was definitely not seen in "Travel Bug Motel 6 twenty," today. The owner may wish to mark it as 'missing' to remove it from the inventory. Sorry for the report.

    A friend of ours was killed on his bike almost exactly one year ago in Tucson, Arizona. Hope this helps keep all bikers safer on the road. Thanks for sharing. Will move along soon.
