Motorcycle Adventure

I help riders understand how motorcycles work and why they crash.

Motorcycle Smarts

Who is David?

I begged my parents for a motorcycle when I was twelve. They said "no," so I settled for a bright orange Honda Express moped. The motorcycle hook was set.

Twenty-something years later, I said "yes" for myself. 

When I bought my first real motorcycle at forty, I felt overwhelmed. Was I being selfish for wanting to ride? Could I reduce my chances of crashing? Why does fear overcome me when I even think about riding? In my books and podcast, I show riders how to ride guilt-free by exposing why most riders crash.

About Podcast

When I was in my MSF course, a funny thing happened. I recognized a reference my Rider Coach made from your podcast. This surprised me at first, but it turns out that Kevin and I are both fans.

Thank you for explaining to us non-Rocket Scientist types how to ride safer and how our bikes work.

We really appreciate all your work.

About Book

David's Motorcycle Smarts book was perfect for me from page one ... starting with rider fear. My wife and friends always ask how my ride was after I go out, and my response is usually, "It's a love-hate relationship."

"How to Avoid Most Lowside and Highside 

Motorcycle Crashes"—Free Guide

Download a free excerpt from my book Motorcycle Smarts: Overcome Fear, Learn Control, Master Riding Well that explains lowside and highside in a totally different way—a better, more easy-to-understand way. Riders crash and die every day because they triggered a lowside or highside crash. And it doesn't have to be this way.
