Always and forever, the numero uno thing that determines accident potential is rider juudgement and making decisions (like passing on a double yellow, which I of course have never done) from the "Hell Yeah!" portion of the brain. Of course, driver inattention/attitude is right up there on the list of risky shit. uFcking cellphones!!!!!
To my mind the MSF course have always had a sort of religious aspect to them. Advocates are like acolytes. Sort of like the ATGATT Bro's. (watch for any responses to this comment, see how they run).
Navy still requires that stuff for sailors?
Link reference (for example) -
THIS from the article is worth noting - "motorcycles with antilock brakes are 37 percent less likely to be involved in fatal crashes" Now, maybe it is not a causal link. Maybe more mature riders are the ones buying new, expensive bikes with ABS etc. And maybe those riders are less squidly. Or maybe it really does help. Or maybe both.
This is perhaps a real and valid reason for buying an updated bike. Myself, I have never ridden a bike with ABS, but I damn sure am considering it. PLUS - what a GREAT excuse to buy a new bike (and I cannot think of many other good ones, there being so many excellent used bikes on CL).
Personally, I like these:

As for your ATGATT trolling, I should infract you, but, I'm too much of a nice guy.
NAVSAFCEN has figured out that follow on training is needed to reinforce the basic training and that continuing training is beneficial.
