JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida has the second-highest number of motorcycle registrations in the nation — one spot down from California and one ahead of Texas.
I am one of those registered riders and have been since my late teens. A motorcycle was my main source of transportation for a couple of years. My part-time job took me on a 60-mile round trip while attending school. All of that riding totaled 15,000-18,000 miles annually.
I do not log that kind of yearly miles these days and maybe that is a good thing. With congested roads and distracted drivers in a hurry, there are too many unfortunate accidents. When those accidents involve motorcycles, serious injuries and deaths are all too common.
What if there was a local course taught by professional riders that could help you improve your riding skills?
