Fatigue & M/C Touring


Dr. Don Arthur published an article dedicated to Fatigue and Motorcycle Touring. Vice Adm (Dr.) Arthur is a well known Long Distance motorcyclist and the 35th Surgeon General of the U.S. Navy.

"As the Sun sets and the miles pass, fatigue becomes our shadow but never our friend. The pleasures of a riding vacation can melt into frustration if a rider pushes the day's miles beyond his or her abilities. This article discusses the elements of fatigue, how to recognize its subtle signs, and how to ride more safely."
