ST-1100 News - March 2011


Welcome to the March edition of the ST-1100 News.
In this issue:
ST1100 Clubs around the world


Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance. - Samuel Johnson


ST1100 Clubs

There are several listings of ST1100 clubs on various web pages. However I've found that quite a few of these clubs no longer exist. Perhaps the members all traded up to ST1300's, or perhaps there was just a general waning of interest.

When referring to ST1100 Clubs, I mean actual physical clubs that have weekly/monthly ride-outs, as opposed to just an Internet Forum. From correspondence I've had with the club webmasters/secretaries, the following are still live:

March Tip:

A rather sobering one this time. We all know that a motorcycle helmet protects the head during a fall. What may not be common knowledge, is that after a severe blow where the rider has been rendered unconscious, it may be just the helmet which is keeping the head in one piece. Paramedics are trained not to remove a motorcyclists' helmet until either a proper scan has been done; or, if urgent removal is necessary, they are trained to remove the helmet in such a way as to minimise any further injuries. But what if a well-meaning member of the public is first on the scene?

It's worth printing the following short message (using something like Dymo tape) and placing it on the front lower right of the helmet, where it will be clearly visible to anyone reaching for the buckle:

"DO NOT REMOVE THIS HELMET UNLESS YOU ARE A MEDIC"



Keep the shiny side up.
