Mar 19, 2015 View Comments by

IMG_5420Once a year, hundreds of motorcyclists from around the country join together at the Touring Weekend to ride amazing roads, enjoy delicious food, and socialize with one another. But the event also boasts many wonderful guest speakers. This year is no different, the 2015 Touring Weekend guest speakers will inform and inspire us each evening. Here is a little preview of what you can expect:

ASM“An Introduction to Accident Scene Management”
Thirty Minute Seminar on Thursday, July 16 at 8 p.m.

As motorcyclists, we may take rider safety courses and wear protective gear in hopes that we’re prepared if we get in an accident. But how much preparation do we make for the scene of someone else’s crash? Kathleen Bridgewater, an Accident Scene Management Lead Instructor, will give participants at this year’s Touring Weekend an introduction to ASM, which teaches us, as bystanders, how to help and work with EMS providers along with the best techniques for helmet removal (if it’s absolutely necessary) as well as demonstrations of jaw thrust, rescue breathing, and basic first aid. The course will take place after the Welcome Dinner on Thursday, July 16 at 8 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to receive free, useful information that may help prevent future injuries and fatalities in the case of an accident.

Uwe“Around the World in Six Years with Uwe Krauss”
Special Presentation on Friday, July 17 at 8 p.m.

Uwe Krauss is a regular contributor to RoadRUNNER Magazine, a motorcycle tour guide across Europe, and a self-proclaimed travel-holic. We are lucky enough to have him join us as both a guide and guest speaker at the 2015 Touring Weekend in Winston-Salem. On Saturday night (July 17) he’ll share with us his story of how a two-week holiday became a life changing six-year, 120,000-mile journey around the world for two people. Through photos and video footage, Touring Weekend guests will get a look at their epic journey that required Uwe to leave the cozy environment of his apartment, job, and friends and instead spend six years on the road in a 40 square foot tent.

The 2015 Touring Weekend will be held July 16–19, 2015 in Winston-Salem, NC. Register online.
