Thankfully, Bret Tkacs and his Puget Sound Safety crew can walk the walk. As for me, I was the perfect guinea pig...er, I mean, ‘embedded reporter,’ for this group. I may not be able to shoot the hair off a toad at a thousand yards, but on a motorcycle, I’m pretty confident. I’ve ridden with world champions like Freddie Spencer and Kevin Schwantz, and trained with legendary coaches like Keith Code and Nick Ienatch, so it takes a bit to impress me. I’m not saying I’m close to being the best rider, but I fit right in with the Green Berets’ cocky bravado, and, in fact, I might have been even more resistant to the teaching.
