· Topic: Alcohol and Motorcycling
· Activity: Fatal Vision Alcohol Goggles.
Each participant will be asked to perform very simple, every day tasks, such as walking, picking up keys, touching an object, tossing a ball into a can, etc. The participant will be asked to perform the same tasks, only now with the Fatal Vision Alcohol Goggles. These patented goggles allow participants to experience with a sober mind what it’s like to be under the influence of alcohol. They are designed to simulate a person’s reaction, balance, and coordination if that person had a B.A.C. level of .07 to 10.00 (the equivalent of 2-3 drinks in 1 hour).
· Topic: What’s on your motorcycle mind?
· Activity: Q&A with the ladies of WMA
Using index cards, we’ll ask participants to ask any motorcycle question and put it in a box. We’ll pick a card at the beginning and end of every night, and the author of the question we choose will win a prize.
· Topic: Conspicuity “Being Seen”
· Activity: Hi Vis Vest Demo
Since research shows that “being seen, not heard” reduces motorcycle collisions, Erika will demonstrate the need for wearing a retroreflective vest at night. These vests will be given out for FREE to those who will commit to wearing one. Please Note: These vests are light weight and can be easily stored and hidden in one’s tank bag or crumpled up and stored in a back pocket, so GOD FORBID no one sees you once you’re off your bike and have arrived at your destination 😉
