Motorcycle News link

I have found the site very interesting, the site collects all on line motorcycle related news from around the world (mostly in the states). If there is a motorcycle crash/accident reported in the news you can read about the crash on this site. I read every crash/accident reported with the intent to learn something that may save my butt one day. I have read the motorcycle news for about a year and 3 trends became very clear. This stuff seems like common sense to most of us I am sure but, the same things seem to happen over and over again.

1. Wear a helmet!...(a real one)
2. Alcohol and riding a motorcycle is a bad combination.
3. Young adults age 16 22 "cage operators" are not looking out for motorcyclist.

Rob,

The site above uses a free news feed from a company called "MoreOver" located at http://www.moreover.com for any news with the word "Motorcycle" in it.

For an example check out the link below:

So....that is how it works. It did seem like some kind of search engine, because some of the news stories only mentioned motorcycles and really had nothing to do with motorcycles. I guess you could refine the search to include the word accident or crash? Kool....

We have used them in the past, the only problem is you get a bunch of news that just happens to have the word "motorcycle" in it. So we dropped it.
