I’m proclaiming the entire month of May as “Motorcycle Lowside and Highside Crash Awareness Month.” So far, nobody has told me I can’t do that.
For the entire month of May, I’m diving into lowside and highside crashes and answering these questions:
- What are they?
- Why is it important to understand them?
- What triggers them?
- What can we do to avoid them?
Understanding lowside and highside crashes is one of the most important things you can do to change your chances of crashing. Yet, I believe it’s the MOST glossed-over topic in motorcycling—probably because it’s hard to explain in simple language.
I cover all this (and more) in my book, Motorcycle Smarts. This material is so important that I’ve decided to give the book away through the month of May at this link: motorcyclesmarts.com/gift
If you’re listening to this after the book has been released for sale (and you don’t want to buy it), I have pulled out this section of the book as an excerpt and offer it to you as a free download here: motorcyclesmarts.com/nocrash
Download the book material and follow along as I step you through the illustrations in the book.
Understanding lowside and highside crashes, what triggers them, and how you can avoid them WILL reduce your chances of crashing. Anyone who tells you differently is a liar.
In this session, I explain lowside crashes and go over four possible triggers.
