In addition to requiring the use of a DOT approved helmet on all MTF rides, the MTF Flower Sniffin Committee strongly encourages the use of Motorcycle specific protective clothing and footwear while participating in any Flower Sniffin event. ATGATT reduces the severity of injuries in an accident and we want every participant in our events to be as safe as possible.

Also the MTF Flower Sniffin Committee strongly encourages each participant in our events to self assess their riding style, interests, need for breaks and riding skill level and to keep that assessment in mind when choosing a riding partner or small group (2-4 riders) to ride with at our events. Sharing the road with someone of similar interests and riding style not only makes the ride more enjoyable for you, but safer for everyone.
