Abstract

Motorcycle riders constitute an increasing proportion of deaths and injuries due to road crashes. Further, older riders represent an increasing proportion of motorcycle riders, with particular concern for those who have returned to riding after a substantial break (returned riders). These riders seem reluctant to undertake any sort of refresher training. In a motorcycle simulator task continuing riders performed best, followed by newly licensed riders, and then returned riders, though that result did not extend to crashes that occurred in the simulator.

A Simulator Comparison of Riding Performance Between New, Returned and Continuing Motorcycle Riders

Olympic Valley — Lake Tahoe, California
