In the fall of 2012, Ryan Shearman was riding his motorcycle to work in New York City when he was rear-ended by a car. The accident threw him off his bike and across an entire lane of highway traffic. Fortunately, he walked away with only a minor concussion and some scrapes and bruises. Inspired by his accident, the life-long rider began researching crash statistics. He quickly discovered that although motorcycles cover less than 0.4% of all miles traveled in the US, motorcyclists account for nearly 15.0% of all road fatalities. On average, at least one motorcyclist dies on American roads every two hours. As a technologist, engineer, and product development specialist, Ryan felt compelled to create something that would make riding safer.
