My name is Joy Medved, I am the founder of Joy of Motorcycling®. Those of you who have followed me for the past 10-20 years, know that Joy of Motorcycling® has been a major part of my life since 2000. I started the organization to help riders improve their knowledge and understanding of the art and science of riding motorcycles, and, of course, to help riders learn how to have more fun motorcycling!
The key to anticipating animal antics and avoiding those potentially painful up-close-and-personal encounters, is to learn as much as we can about the different environments we ride in, and the different animals who live there. With this information in our knowledge toolbox, we will already have a good idea what to expect and how to react, when – not if – the situation arises.
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), as the name states, is injury to the brain, temporal or cranial areas of the body from trauma, such as the head coming in contact with a violent blow from an assault, a projectile, a blast from explosion, or in the case of motorcycles, impact to a vehicle or the ground. The trauma can affect the brain temporarily or permanently due to bruising, torn tissues, internal bleeding and other complications.
