Hispanics comprise 7 percent of American motorcyclists overall, and 11 percent of younger riders – those of Generations X and Y. As part of its long-standing policy of reaching out to riders of all backgrounds and ethnicities, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has released a Spanish-language version of its Motorcycle Operator Manual.

MSF’s “MOM” is used by motor-vehicle agencies in 41 states as a study guide for motorcycle-license applicants, and it has been a part of MSF’s inventory of reference materials on motorcycle operation for the past four decades.

The 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.

The 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 at www.msf-usa.org/library.aspx#spanish-link.

“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.

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