Summary of the 2006 International Motorcycle Safety Conference
“The Human Element”
Long Beach, California
March 28-30, 2006
The MSF and its member companies hosted the world's motorcycle safety community for a week in Southern California. A true safety summit, the 325 attendees came from more than 20 countries, 40 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In all, 37 research papers were published in the proceedings and presented. Rider training demonstrations just before and after the conference allowed instructors and attendees to observe and participate in actual MSF classes. Presentations came from university programs, government agencies, rider organizations, training professionals and the motorcycle industry. The information shared among all of these groups will be used in future safety initiatives and research efforts that seek to reduce risk for motorcyclists around the globe.
