MSF and Virginia Tech to study motorcyclist?s near misses and post-accident
Riding a 2010 Kawasaki KLX250SF on I-5 South of LA. Riding will soon be safer once MSF study data has been analyzed. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and its members are partnering with the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) on what is likely the world?s first large-scale, naturalistic motorcycle riding study: The MSF Naturalistic Study of Motorcyclists. Using small video recorders and instrumentation mounted on numerous bikes for 6-18 months, the study will combine unobtrusive, continuous data collection with post-incident interviews to create a comprehensive picture of many factors contributing to both crashes and near-crashes.
