San Diego County Motorcycle Training

San Diego County, California, with miles of beautiful Pacific coastline and dry, moderate climate is one of the most desirable places in the San Diego County Motorcycle Trainingcountry to live. Most people who live here are always smiling, and for good reason: It’s a great place to live!

However, San Diego County is getting a reputation it really doesn’t want: It’s a place where motorcycle accidents are happening at an alarming rate. According to The San Diego Reader, San Diego County has the dubious honor of ranking the fourth worst — of 58 California counties — in motorcycle crash deaths. In 2016, the county broke its own record for the number of people (overwhelmingly men) who died in such crashes.

It seems the majority of the motorcyclists involved are from two age groups: 19 to 25 and over 45 years. In other words, riders with limited experience, and experienced riders who haven’t kept their skills sharp. Of course, many crashes are caused by passenger vehicle drivers who aren’t as attentive as they should be. Still, learning about and re-training on defensive techniques can always help a motorcyclist  reduce the chances of a collision.
