Recipient's comments: "It felt great. I didn't know there was such an award. I guess they do it to support the industry, which supports the MVA. We try hard to support the safety of motorcycle riding. We actively tell our customers about the safety program and give them literature and encourage them to take the course, whether they are a new rider or experienced. I learned more in a couple of hours from it than I learned from 20 years of riding."
