Current GOAL


This coin is being released as part of the Todie's Wild Ride Bike Awareness Project initiated by Rockin Roddy in response to the death of his good friend Tod Phillips. On August 12, 2008, Tod was riding a motorcycle when he was killed in an accident caused by a left turning vehicle. Tod was one third of Team Rod & Tod w/KAboom. This coin is released in his memory and in memory of all motorcyclists killed on the road. As part of this coins journey, I would like to collect different tips for drivers to be more aware of motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. Feel free to add any tips you wish to the logs to share with others.

About This Item

Ingot

DO NOT KEEP THIS COIN!
This coin is part of a huge mission to raise awareness of bikes (both motorized and human powered) on the roadways.
All of us who ride Motorcycles also need to be aware that other drivers cannot or will not be able to see you when you're riding.
Here are some things to keep in mind when you're riding along with the wind in your face:

Cars and Trucks are bigger than you - give THEM the right of way whenever you can, otherwise, they are likely to take it from you and that can be very dangerous!

When approaching intersections, "pretend" that the other vehicles there cannot see you! Pretend you are INVISIBLE to them! This can save your skin as well as the rest of you.

Always think "He's doesn't see me. He's looking right at me, but he doesn't see me." Better safe than sorry.

SLOW DOWN - Speed can kill, especially on a motorcycle!

Lastly, remember, YOU have 2 HUGE advantages on a motorcyle:
1) You can see better - there's no car frames, door jambs, etc. for you which means less blind spots - but you have to LOOK and ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings. Who's next to you, who's going to cross in front of you?
2) You are more maneuverable than cars - learn to use that maneuverability to escape possible misshaps. Remember, you can stop faster, turn quicker and change lanes in 1 second! BUT, make sure you have an "out" - always keep an eye out for zones you can move into quickly when needed. Never allow vehicles to ride next to you - they block your 'out' zone and never drive in someone's blind spot - it's hard enough for them to see a car there, they won't see a bike!

Ride Safe!

This bug has traveled over 11,000 miles so far! As the owner, I would love to see it hit each and every state in the USA! Currently in Florida, I would like to see it travel the Gulf Coast... Please be sure and read the logs and contribute YOUR motorcycling for safety tips and/or stories.

Very nice geocoin with a very admirable mission.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate a cache in the past 5 months. Therefore I have transferred this geocoin to mscoutsfan, a seasoned geocacher, in order to put Todies Wild Ride back into the geocaching circuit.
