IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 24, 2012 – The Motorcycle Safety Foundation will hold two MSF International Motorcyclist Safety Conferences in an effort to further the non-profit organization's goal of creating and supporting motorcyclists of good riding character and, ultimately, saving lives. Although both conferences are scheduled for the Fall of 2013, the exact dates and locations of the U.S. conferences will be announced at a later date.
Both MSF conferences will have a decidedly scientific focus, with heavy emphasis placed on the successful delivery of safety training and improved student outcomes. MSF's own Dr. Sherry Williams will present results from the Safety Renewal Study as well as preliminary results from the groundbreaking MSF 100 Motorcyclists Naturalistic Study.
"MSF is very excited at the prospect of hosting two new international safety conferences," said MSF Vice President Robert Gladden. "Our objective is to create effective and efficient conference environments so the participants can make the most of their attendance, both in what they take away from the conferences and in what they contribute. And by holding two conferences in separate yet equally accessible locations, we hope to appeal to as wide an audience as possible and make it convenient for participants to attend."
Additionally, attendees of the MSF International Motorcyclist Safety Conferences will have the opportunity to discover more about the current iteration of the Basic RiderCourse, which now includes an advanced eCourse, and details of how it's being successfully implemented in MSF-administered state programs.
