About this Episode

In this episode, DanDanTheFireman and I have a nice chat and get down to the nitty-gritty of motorcycle safety and the importance of training and wearing proper gear to reduce the inherent risks associated with motorcycling. Having worked as an EMT for a little over 10 years, Daniel has seen it all when it comes to traffic accidents, in particular related to motorcycles. His passion is educating motorcyclists, especially beginning riders, on the things they can do to get better informed and better trained about motorcycling, to increase their chances of having a safe and rewarding future as a motorcyclist. DanDanTheFireman has over 92,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, and is close to having 400 Patreon subscribers. So obviosuly there are a lot of people intersted in what he has to say! We talk about his experiences as an EMT, and the weekly live videos he does to analyze motorcycle accident videos for his listeners, so they can become more skilled at understanding motorcycle accident dynamics and how they can avoid accidents, and if necessary minimize the risks if they are involved in one. We also talk about the Accident Scene Management Course that Gina and I did two years ago and how that has made us more aware of accident risks, and more importantly what we can do to help save lives if we ever witness an accident. We also talk about Daniel's new Indian FTR 1200 and how Fast Eddie's Motojitsu motorcycle exercise program is helping both of us become better riders.
