Motorcycle safety author enters Hall of Fame

A motorcycle author from Agnew, Washington, who wrote what is considered the authoritative book on motorcycle safety will be inducted into the American Motorcycle Association’s Hall of Fame.

David Hough’s best advice to motorcyclists is "Take it seriously."

The second edition of his book, "Proficient Motorcycling," has sold about 150,000 copies.

He will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Dec. 5 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas with five others in the hall’s class of 2009.

The association primarily honors racers and big-name stunt riders.

Hough sees the award as a recognition of the many people teaching motorcycle safety and writing books.

Hough began riding a motorcycle when he lived on Bainbridge Island and commuted to Boeing.
