Motorcycle Mentorship Ride Helps Troops Stay Alive

By King Law Firm on March 29, 2013

As reported by Sergeant 1st Class Joe Armas 1st ACB, 1st Cav. Div. Public Affairs and published in the Fort Hood Sentinel, the Army is making an effort to place emphasis on motorcycle safety.  The goal is to lower the number of accidents and related injuries and deaths that military personnel who ride suffer.

According to the Army Safety Guide for Motorcycles, over 30,000 U.S. Army soldiers are registered motorcycle riders.  More than 200 soldiers participate in mentorship rides each year.  During last fall’s ride, organized by Sergeant 1st Class Michael Holliday motorcycle mentor and the brigade’s senior safety non-commissioned officer, participants were joined by two professional motorcycle stunt riders, Ernie Vigil and Nick Brocha.

Sergeant Holliday said the group ride was all about motorcycle safety and why it should be a priority for Army personnel as well as for all riders.  The event’s goal was to promote the importance of protective equipment, being alert and aware on the highway, and knowing how to maneuver to avoid a crash or to survive in the event of a crash.  The most important goal is to stay alive while enjoying the incredible feeling of freedom riding a motorcycle delivers.

Everyone got together after the ride to identify and discuss some small shortcomings in order to improve riders’ skills and be better, safer riders.

American soldiers’ job is to keep their country safe.  Soldiers should set the standard and be an example for all those who ride.  If soldiers can’t protect themselves on the road by riding safely, then they can’t do the important job their country has called on them to do.

Motorcycle enthusiast and accident attorney Ray King is interested in the safety of all who ride, especially those who have risked their lives in foreign campaigns to keep America safe as so many Fort Hood soldiers have.  If you need the services of an attorney who handles only motorcycle accident cases, call Austin motorcycle attorney Ray King at (512) 514-6633.
