Indian Motorcycle Joins the Industry in Promoting Motorcycle Safety Month With Important Reminders for a Safe Riding Season

Indian Motorcycle Joins the Industry in Promoting Motorcycle Safety Month With 
Important Reminders for a Safe Riding Season 
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 --   Indian
Motorcycle(R), America's first motorcycle company, reminds riders
that May is Motorcycle Safety Month, and joins the greater motorcycle
industry in raising awareness with both riders and non-riders of
motorcycle safety. Indian Motorcycle encourages all riders to seek
out regular professional skills development and safety training no
matter how many miles they have ridden as riding skills must be
consistently reinforced and practiced in a controlled environment.
Information about existing national programs such as the Motorcycle
Safety Foundation can be found at www.msf-usa.org, and many states
and regions have training organizations including Streetmasters
(www.streetmasters.info) and Total Control
(www.totalcontroltraining.net).  
As one part of its steadfast commitment to rider safety, Indian
Motorcycle's new line of apparel offers an array of safety features
and technologies to protect riders, including motorcycle jackets with
built-in CE-approved armor and stitching designed to help survive
abrasion. Indian Motorcycle also offers a line of DOT approved
helmets and a selection of technically advanced riding gloves for
additional protection. The Indian Motorcycle engineering team never
rides without full gear including a helmet, protective jacket, long
pants, over-the-ankle boots and protective gloves, and encourages all
motorcycle enthusiasts to do the same.  
In addition to promoting ongoing skills development and rider safety,
Indian Motorcycle encourages automobile drivers to be particularly
vigilant in looking out for motorcyclists as the summer riding season
ramps up. A motorcycle's smaller size and diminished profile means
they can often be overlooked on the road or in a driver's blind spot. 
"Our entire team at Indian Motorcycle is dedicated to the safety and
security of our riders with features liked standard ABS and included
roadside assistance on our entire lineup, along with a full line of
apparel for the ultimate in rider safety and comfort," said Steve
Menneto, VP of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. "We encourage all
riders to constantly upgrade their skills and safety training, and we
ask everyone to start seeing motorcycles and give riders your full
courtesy and respect on the roads we all share."
