Helmet:Biltwell Inc. Gringo Jacket: Black Brand Roxxy Bike: 2017 Kawasaki NINJA® 650 ABS As a motorcyclist victim in an auto collision, you face very different challenges including proving fault and oftentimes suffering more extensive and serious injuries. As Ron explains, “I ride. I understand that motor- cyclists face unique challenges on the road. I also understand that we sustain much more damage in any given collision than those in a protective cage, and we correspondingly need much more focused help when we are hurt. Most importantly, I know that even if we as riders share no fault in causing the accident, insurance companies and some people will try to blame us just because we were on a motorcycle. That’s wrong, and I won’t let them blame you for riding.” 29
