In 2007 there was 90 motorcycle related deaths in Colorado. In the last two years Mesa County has seen eight motorcycle related fatalities. C-DOT says the number of motorcycle registrations in Colorado has also increased. Now C-DOT is launching its new motorcycle awareness campaign called "Live to Ride."
The program focuses on raising motorcycle safety through education and motorist awareness. Cyclists are encouraged to enroll in Motorcycle Operator safety Training classes, or MOST classes as they are called for short. MOST classes are usually offered through local dealers and teach three different levels of experience.
Many insurance companies offer discounts to riders who take a MOST class.
