It has been shown that as many motorcyclists age, their skills on their bikes deteriorate. Men over the age of 40 have been involved in more motorcycle accidents than any other demographic in the past year. Nearly a third of the fatal crashes from last year involved alcohol. In almost every fatal motorcycle accident, the driver was not wearing a helmet
It seems as though many older riders are not aware to changes to the rules of the road that have been made between when they got their motorcycle licenses and today. Because of these unsettling statistics, the state is urging older riders to submit to motorcycle safety courses.
There are multiple levels available to help re-educate motorcyclists on what kinds of things to look for to keep themselves safe. An advanced course is being offered by the Madison Area Technical College.

Last Saturday, the eighth annual Firefighters Ride for MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) drew in 2,000 motorcyclists to raise money to help fight muscular dystrophy. Motorcyclists from across the country toured the streets of central Wisconsin.
The motorcycle ride and benefit included a motorcycle parade, a ride through the state, and live music. All of the proceeds go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which provides research funding as well as support to families that are dealing with the condition.
Since it began, the firefighter-sponsored ride has raised more than $250,000.
Being able to take part in events like this is just one of many benefits of motorcycle riding.

Patrick Moore, a 55-year-old De Pere man, was arrested for his 11th operating while intoxicated (OWI) offense last Wednesday.
The man rear-ended an SUV on his motorcycle on Wednesday afternoon. He admitted to drinking two beers during his lunch an hour prior to the collision. While speaking with officers, he fell off of his motorcycle and repeated himself several times, slurring his speech.
The man refused to submit to both a breathalyzer and a field sobriety test, but he allowed his blood to be tested when taken to a hospital. He was charged with felony OWI. He has 10 previous OWI convictions from the time spanning 1989 through 2006.
Many people believe that drinking just a few drinks will have no effect on their ability to operate a motor vehicle, failing to recognize how alcohol impairs their ability to drive.

This month is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, an appropriate time for the Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety Program to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The program provides Wisconsinites with motorcycle safety training.
Motorcycle safety experts from the program advise riders to always wear a helmet, even though it is not required by law. They also urge people in automobiles to be more cautious when sharing the road with their two-wheeled counterparts.
More than 500,000 people in Wisconsin possess a motorcycle license. With the recent pleasant weather, many of them can’t wait to get on the road.

A young man from the small town of Cochrane, WI, was killed when his motorcycle crashed last Tuesday, according to the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash occurred at around 4:00 in the afternoon. The man, 24, was traveling south on State Highway 35 when an 18-year-old woman collided with him while attempting to make a left turn onto Indian Creek Road from the northbound lane. They collided head-on.
The man, who was not wearing a helmet, was announced dead on the scene, while the lady sustained only minor injuries.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Matthew Triggs.
