Once he completed several motorcycle training courses, Bryan got his first bike. Shortly after, an early morning ride to work went wrong. An SUV passed him and swerved into his lane, causing Bryan to panic, hit the brakes and swerve off the road. In hindsight, Bryan knows his accident could have been avoided if he listened to his training. But as an inexperienced rider, instincts kicked in before he could think through the situation. This goes to show: it doesn’t matter if you’re an inexperienced or pro rider, no amount of training can guarantee an accident-free ride.
But the knowledge you gain can help prepare you. And luckily, where Bryan was lacking in experience, he made up for by wearing full gear.
