Motorcycle riding has taken Kenya by storm, from the low capacity class “Boda Boda” and Apache class, middle capacity class 400-600cc and superbike class 750cc and above. This trend has brought many Kenyan’s in touch with each other around the common hobby.
The concern is the rising number of road crashes in all motorcycle classes but predominantly the low capacity class, possibly due to the large number of riders in this class.
The middle and superbike classes have also seen injuries to riders and damage to property amounting to millions of shillings in health care bills and repair of the motorcycles.
Research shows that over 90% of motorcycle crashes are rider associated. This could be deficiency in riding skills, uncontrollable speed, intoxication, defective machinery, peer pressure etc.
The BladeDoc™ Racing School seeks to address the rider factors that are greatly associated with morbidity and mortality as a result of motorcycle crashes.
