First of all, thank you to Brittany for sharing your story. Thank you for your courage and your willingness to turn a horrific circumstance into an opportunity. Recently my husband rode his motorcycle off the road and into a ditch, totaling the bike but thankfully only minimal damage to himself. He missed a telephone pole by inches. One of our favorite pastimes together was to ride. I own my dream bike, a Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow 1200T. Since he wrecked his, he no longer wants to ride and I'm now afraid to but I can't bring myself to sell my "girl." Would love your opinion and advice.

I am relieved to hear that your husband only sustained minimal injuries. Although riding requires as certain amount of risk, it is never easy to accept the idea that something you love so much can cause pain to you and your loved ones. My advice to you is simple. Only you know what is in your heart. You must decide whether the joy of riding outweighs the potential consequences of a crash. Understanding and respecting the risk can make you a better, more cautious and focused rider. Fear can be debilitating and actually put you in harm's way. You must choose which of these you feel towards riding, and make an educated decision on the right course of action once you've identified whether you are truly afraid, or just more aware of the consequences now that you've experienced them secondhand. Whatever you choose, know that you are always part of our family of riders and nothing can take that away from you. I wish you and your family the best in life moving forward.

Brittany is a very inspiring young woman. This story touched my heart not only for my friend Brittany, but also for my daughter who was recently in a motorcycle accident.

I have always been an advocate for ATGATT... now more than ever. I love that Brittany has dedicated her life to motorcycle safety. She is one hell of a speaker and communicator. She expresses herself so eloquently and possesses wisdom beyond her years. She truly is an inspiration.

For those that still don't get it—All The Gear, All The Time. I also survived a major accident. It does change your outlook on a lot of things. My biggest issue was a brain injury—that diagnosis alone is hard for family and friends to hear. It took me a long time to remember who I was and how to walk and talk again. I survived because of my helmet; protective gear minimized other injuries. It took a lot of time and work to get to where I am now. When you are sitting on the porch wishing you could still ride, tell yourself again why you wouldn't wear all that uncomfortable stuff. Give me a wave as I go by. I am riding again!
