We are pleased to announce the full agenda for the Texas Statewide Motorcycle Safety Forum to be held on Saturday February 23, 2019. The location will be in beautiful Kerrville, Texas, with some of the best riding routes in the state.
We normally talk about how motorcycles cause injuries and fatalities. Our keynote speaker, Krystal Hess – Founder of Motorcycle Missions, will help us understand how motorcycles and motorcycling are being used as tools to help improve our safety, particularly for veterans suffering from PTSD.
The agenda also features experts to discuss national, state, and local motorcycle safety issues that are relevant to all riders. It is a very exciting Forum this year. There is still time to register.
