This episode is an interview with Tom Walker, also known as the MotoCoach, who is a certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach, a track day coach and enthusiast, and creator of his Corner College rider skills development training program. We talk about a recent accident he had on the track, his injuries and how his recovery is going, and the effectiveness of his gear in this high-speed crash. We also start the conversation to cover the various things that I need to do to get myself and my bike ready to start doing track days in the not too distant future.
