Media Coverage; I was on NBC Last Night

In the Parking lot at NBC Studios for Interview and Ride Video

In the Parking lot at NBC Studios for Interview and Ride Video

I gave an interview on motorcycle safety at the NBC studios last month. You can read an article about it by clicking here. The video is embedded below.

The actual story was aired on TV yesterday on multiple timeslots. You can read their story by clicking here. The video is embedded below.

The gist of the story was about motorcycle safety inflatable air vest’s and jacket’s. I gave an interview about the legal aspects about the devices.

I was questioned as to why these types of devices were not mandatory in the State of California, and whether I thought they should be.

In the interview I told NBC that I did not think that these devices should be mandatory because among other things they require attachment to the motorcycle, and the attachment point could fail causing a rider to remain attached to the motorcycle in a crash.

I also told NBC that they jury was still out on whether these things actually provide protection when you go down since they take .5 seconds or more to inflate.

Hell you can see in the crash video at the beginning of their story, that the poor guy who hit the car turning left in front of him would not have been saved with this device on the initial impact. It might have helped once he flew off of the bike, who knows.

I told NBC that I would not want to be the crash dummy for such a device.

I gave at least a 20 minute interview and was asked many questions.

They ended up cutting out the legal aspects of this device out of the entire story and relegated me to 2 quotes and an honorable mention. They also did a write up for their website.

They also got some action shots of my riding my Harley Davidson Electra Glide at the beginning. During one shot, the photographer was riding on the back shooting over my shoulder.

I did not think this story was every going to air. I found out that it was on the air, when my father called me and told me he saw it on TV.

With respect to the airbag device, I might just get a vest for my gal and I. When it comes to safety it is better to be safe than sorry.

I have been real busy lately.

As many of you can tell, there have been less Biker Law Blog posts lately. The main reason for the slowdown of new articles was the Biker Law Blog software conversion project, as well as my busy schedule. Hopefully I will never have to go through something like this again. Even as I type this, phase 2 of the project is about to be implemented. Phase 2 will basically affect the overall look and feel of the Biker Law Blog. 

As a recognized motorcycle accident attorney expert, and biker’s rights advocate, I have attracted a lot of media attention lately. I have recently given interviews to the Riverside Enterprise, The American Bar Association Journal, and NBC news to name a few. Furthermore, as you read in my last post, I was invited by the American Bar Association to give a presentation at the ABA Convention in San Francisco, California. This was a huge honor. I will post more about my media exposure in the near future as more is released.

Some attorney’s claim that they are motorcycle attorney’s who really ride motorcycles; well I am the real deal. I challenge any so-called California Motorcycle Accident Attorney to join me on a real motorcycle ride here in California.

If there is actually a real California Lawyer out there who handles motorcycle accident cases or biker rights cases, besides myself, and you really ride, I will give you a shout out here in the Biker Law Blog.

To be frank, I would be shocked if anybody actually takes me up on this challenge. You see, the landscape is littered with a bunch of posers who do not ride motorcycles. They would not know the first thing about petcocks or counter steering. Would you want these yahoos representing you in your motorcycle accident case? Anyway, enough with the rants.

I have been doing lots of riding this summer. As time permits I will share some of my rides here on the Biker Law Blog.

I look forward to bringing your more articles in the near future.
