MSF Spanish Motorcycle Operator Manual Released

MSF Spanish Motorcycle Operator Manual ReleasedWith Hispanic motorcyclists on the rise, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has released its Motorcycle Operator Manual – rightly known as “MOM” – in a Spanish-language version.

The MSF reports that seven percent of all American motorcyclists are now Hispanic, and the Hispanic population makes up 11 percent of the younger riders from Generations X and Y.

Currently, 41 states use MOM as a study guide for motorcycle-license applicants, and the guide has been reference material for motorcycle operation for the past four decades.

The MSF says MOM covers riding gear, basic rules-of-the-road, navigating intersections, crash-avoidance strategies, carrying passengers, impaired riding, and vehicle troubleshooting, plus supplemental information on the unique characteristics of three-wheeled motorcycles.

“We hope that states with a sizable population of Spanish-speaking motorcyclists and potential motorcyclists will consider offering copies of this new publication at their motor vehicle offices,” said Ken Glaser, MSF’s director of special projects.

The MSF reports that a Spanish version of the MOM, along with Spanish versions of other key MSF instructional materials, is available for free download from MSF’s online library.

States can request a print-ready, live-file version of the Spanish MOM by emailing kglaser@msf-usa.org.
