BE CRASH FREE: Inspiring and Empowering Motorcycle Riders of America to Prevent and Survive Crashes


About Be Crash Free

This 3-minute video provides an introduction to Be Crash Free, why it was created, and how it can help motorcycle riders prevent and survive crashes.

Crashing Sucks!

You’ve heard it said that “Crashing Sucks.” Well, it does. The mission of Be Crash Free is just what it sounds like – not crashing. More specifically, “inspiring and empowering riders to prevent and survive crashes.” Here is how it works…

If you are committed making the choices to set you up to be crash free, make the pledge (free copy of the pledge below).
For those who want to take the next step and enjoy the benefits of membership, join us and become a member. See below for the benefits of membership.

You ARE Free to Choose...

No one HAS TO make the pledge (the pledge to ride legal, ride sober, ride protected, ride skilled, and ride informed) , but Be Crash Free membership is for those who CHOOSE to do so. The pledge is personal. It's made BY you and FOR you, as well as for your friends and loved ones. Anyone can benefit by making the pledge (see below for a free PDF of the pledge), and there are additional benefits for those who choose to make the $27/year investment in a membership (see below for details).

"What do I get with a Be Crash Free membership?"

Card, Patch, Sticker

It’s one thing to make a pledge to yourself—like a New Year’s Resolution, for example. But to hold to that pledge over time is something else entirely. This is where we, as humans, need support to be successful. Be Crash Free provides this support. The patch and helmet sticker are designed to be on a member’s riding gear. The membership card has a summary of the pledge on the back.  These items provide physical and visual cues; in the right place at the right time.

Monthly Riding Tip

Every month, Be Crash Free produces a motorcycle riding tip for members. These tips include riding psychology and attitude, specific items to consider or be on the lookout for when riding, riding skills and strategies, motorcycle handling dynamics, and more. This will typically be a video, but may also be an audio file or article. New riding tips will be announced to members via email. That email will also include a reminder of the pledge they made to themselves—encouraging them to assess their own success in living up to their pledge.

Member Discounts

In addition to the benefits already mentioned, Be Crash Free is committed to securing financial incentives for riders. It is the goal of Be Crash Free to deliver value well in excess of the annual membership. Members receive discounts on motorcycle related products and services. It is our belief that riders who self-select as members and voluntarily make the pledge constitute a lower risk pool for insurers and motorcycle insurance companies will recognize this lower risk with lower premiums.

"YES! I'm in Favor of Being Crash Free"

Monthly riding tips to keep you sharp, a membership card, patch and sticker to serve as physical, visual reminders of your pledge to yourself, and discounts on a growing list of products and services are all designed to support you in your goal of being crash free. We all have someone who wants us to come home safe and sound (and someone we want to come home safe and sound FOR). Make the choices and take the actions to help make that happen.

3 Tips for Success at Being Crash Free

When you do choose to become a member, here are a few quick tips for using that membership to your advantage (2 minute video).


Do You Love Someone Who Rides?

Give the gift to help them come home safe and sound!

When someone you love rides a motorcycle, it’s natural to worry about them (I’m almost 50, and my mother still worries about me when I ride). You want them to be safe – to come home in one piece after each and every ride. You can help them to do that with a membership to Be Crash Free where our mission is to inspire and empower motorcycle riders to take action and make choices to prevent and survive crashes.

Be Crash Free is built on the idea that riders make choices and take actions every day that affect their safety. We encourage riders to make a pledge to themselves and their loved ones about these choices (a pledge to Ride Legal, Ride Sober, Ride Protected, Ride Skilled, and Ride Informed.)
